SCHENECTADY

Determining where to start your visit to Schenectady can be difficult because this city offers so much to do. So, let’s start at Rivers Casino & Hotel, a few minutes by Uber from the Schenectady Amtrak Station. Rivers Casino evokes a Jersey Shore boardwalk excitement tailored for Las Vegas high rollers and newcomers alike. From table games, slots, Keno and Video Poker, to the majestic Mohawk River just outside your window at The Landing Hotel, Rivers Casino is accessible, familiar and fun. The Rivers Casino Sportsbook was the first to open and take wagers in New York State. If you’re visiting Dukes Chophouse, definitely order the lobster mac and cheese for dinner. Flipt for lunch will place you on the receiving end of one of the best burgers you’ve ever eaten. Downtown Schenectady, where the Amtrak station is located, features Jay Street Marketplace with shops, restaurants and a pedestrian plaza that links Proctors Theatre to the majestic City Hall and U.S Post Office. The city’s historic Stockade District is home to more than 40 pre-Revolutionary houses. And Proctors Theatre in the coming months is set to host performances of famous musicals and plays.
