Things To See And Do In Albany Georgia: Travel Fun Information

I live in Albany, Georgia, here, in the United States. It is a great town and one of the best things that I love about this city is it’s diversity. Here are some very worthy places of interest to visit. If you ever come to Albany, GA, you do not want to miss these spots.


The Albany Georgia Civil Rights Institute. This museum is truly one of a kind. An old Mt. Zion church made into a museum. Located at 326 Whitney Ave, Albany, Georgia, 31701. This place will transport you back into time. To a time we never want to relive, but we need to remember and learn from. Slavery, racism and segregation. You will witness blacks only, whites, all of that. Actual segregation that was not so very long ago. Shocking and enlightening. This museum is special. You will leave it forever changed and better for it. Now, that is progress. In 1961-1962, the people of Albany, GA took a stand for human and civil rights. A time never to be forgotten. I am very proud to be a citizen of Albany. This institute is one of the many reasons why. More information can be found at Albanycivilrightsinstitute.org.


The Flint Riverquarium is another reason to come and visit Albany, Georgia. A natural blue springs hole created the famous Flint River here. This riverquarium is unlike anything that you will ever see. Alligators, turtles, bass, birds, snakes, all are featured here. Native to the area, it is a wonder to view the exhibits and learn. This tourist attraction boasts a huge theater, live animal feedings and shows, special events and a look into the river world that you just can’t see anywhere else. Worth a look and see, anytime. A jewel in the city’s crown. Unforgettable. Find out more at Flintriverquarium.com.


Chehaw park is a wild animal zoo and parks feature that has made the city of Albany very proud for decades. The parks at Chehaw have a zoo, hiking trails, camping, a large playground for kids and so much more. Indian festivals and yearly festivities celebrate this unique park’s fun. From ice skating to Christmas lights shows, this place is just always plain family fun. More information can be found at Parksatchehaw.org and other websites.


Albany, Georgia is also known for their yearly Quail Unlimited Celebrity Quail Hunt. Albany is the capital of quail hunting and if you are a game bird shooter, Albany offers a heaven for hunters. Every year, celebrities come here to hunt, from the racing world, country and western music stars, football stars and such. This event is star worthy.


These are just a few of the things to see and do in Albany, Georgia. This town has a small town charm, but a big city heart. Simple in taste, but fun. And fun is why we all vacation. From Indian roots, civil rights, hunting and zoos, this city has it’s share of diversity. That is what drew me here. Albany has culture, friendliness, excitement and all that I love.

I think that I'm beginning to sound like a broken record today, Bridgitte because I seem to be telling everyone the same thing--add pictures.Besides a lead picture, you could have added four or five more if you had given each of those attractions its own section. Finding the pictures, downloading them, resizing them, and then inserting them into your article all takes time, but it's time well spent. Adding pictures just may be the key to getting a star at the top of your page.

Bridgette I love your article and do agree it needs pictures. Now on to Albany, we took our kids there this past summer and spent an entire day seeing everything in your article. We had great time but I had lost my camera and didn't get any pictures which I would have gladly loaned you for this. By the way, we are neighbors, I live in Thomasville and an thinking of taking up Mark's challenge as well.

Thanks, Bridgitte. I doubt if I will get to Georgia but would love to see some pictures.
Also, Mikey, why are you shooting quail? Only because they don't have guns and you don't want to be shot.
