Schenectady

The city of Schenectady, perched near the confluence of the Mohawk and Hudson rivers, offers a variety of cultural, outdoor and historic attractions. Downtown, where the Amtrak station is located, features Jay Street Marketplace with shops, restaurants and a pedestrian plaza that links historic Proctors Theatre to the majestic City Hall and U.S Post Office. The historic Stockade District is home to more than 40 pre-Revolutionary houses and 400 homes more than 200 years old. Thomas Edison founded General Electric here; learn more about him, and lots of other stuff, at the Museum of Innovation and Science. Stay at the Rivers Casino & Resort— and don’t miss the lobster mac and cheese at the resort’s Dukes Chophouse. Enjoy homemade pasta at longtime staple Johnny’s, followed up by cannolis at Perreca’s Bakery.
