Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

09/04/2012 - Reunion Group Info

Last week I gave a tour to a couple that were attending a Destroyer Escort Reunion in Los Vegas. 

They loved the tour of the USS Slater and were going to suggest that their group consider Albany/USS Slater as a destination in the future. The USS Slater and the city of Albany is a great destination for military reunions (especially for DE and Tin Can veteran groups).  In my experience, the USS Slater crew will roll out the red carpet.  Check out the visitor reviews on Trip Advisor.

Albany has an excellent visitor bureau that can assist with reunion groups.  Other Albany destinations that may interest military reunion groups include the Albany Visitor Center (includes an exhibit dedicated to USS Albany); the NY State Museum; Dutch Apple Cruises;  and the Watervielt Arsenal.  From time to time I plan group events, and I'd like to give a plug to the Albany Med Hilton Garden Inn.  They can provide shuttle services to the Train Station; the Airport and the USS Slater.

A short distance away is Saratoga Springs and Lake George.
