The Beat from Troy Music Hall #9, We Gotta Get Out of This Place

Just in case you need to know, today is Saturday! We recommend you get out of the house and, quite literally, take a hike.

Where to Hike

This weekend is supposed to be in the high 60’s and sunny, so take advantage of the good weather and explore! Visit Alltrails, a website that has many suggestions for local trails. Be smart about it – with clear, bright days, trails may be crowded. Practice good social distancing, and wear your masks if necessary.
Take a drive to explore some of the best trails in the Bear Mountain Region.
Let us know if you see any of these animals when you are out and about.

Visit The Kennedy Center’s Digital Stage For Great Performances!

Staying in tonight? Of course you are! Watch extraordinary performances from the Kennedy Center’s stages and beyond, with new releases daily, special series and original stories. They’ve posted thousands of videos, from Iron and Wine, Broadway legend Audra McDonald, and so much more – take the time to explore.

Sculptures and Trails and Fresh Air – Oh My!

A drive to Art Omi’s sculpture park, just 30 minutes from Albany, makes a great day out! Open daily, Art Omi, a Sculpture & Architecture Park in Columbia County, welcomes the public to its grounds free of charge. Please read their new guidelines for visiting this weekend.
