Many say Troy is the place to be if you’re thinking of moving to the Capital Region, and we can’t agree more! If you’re in town for a night or looking to live here all year, this city gives you all the exciting food, entertainment and adventure you could ever want!

Entertainment For Everyone In The Family

When you live in Troy, you’ll see that the city is all about community. Enjoy community perks like the year-round Troy Waterfront Farmers Market. During the summer, the farmers market is located right downtown and in the winter, it moves inside to the former Price Chopper located on 2nd Avenue right in Troy! This market is open from 9am-2pm every Saturday and expect to find an enormous selection of organic produce, bakery items, cheese, artisanal soaps, and more. The best part is you are supporting all local artisans from around Troy.

Take a trip through history with a visit to the Burden Iron Works Museum. The Burden Iron Works office building is one of the few physical reminders of a significant nineteenth century industrial complex that once extended a mile along the Hudson River and employed nearly 2,000 men at its peak. You can see some of the original architectural details and is a great lesson from where Troy was to where Troy is today.

For the sports fans, take in a game at the Joe Bruno Stadium, home of the Tri-City ValleyCats. Known as “The Joe,” this stadium is a summer staple for those in the Capital Region. Did you know there have even been 70 former ValleyCats players to reach the Major League’s? That list includes Jose Altuve, George Springer, Ben Zobrist, Hunter Pence, and Dallas Keuchel. This family friendly ballpark hosts a memorable experience for all ages. This is a perfect location for birthday parties, meetings and even weddings!

Troy is also home to one of the most renowned entertainment venues, The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. This National Historic landmark has been entertaining the people of Troy since it first opened in 1875 with legends like Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald, Isaac Stern, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Vladimir Horowitz, Joshua Bell, Andrew Bird, Steve Martin, Lyle Lovett, and John Prine taking the stage.
