Albany has a few town jewels, but you just have to dig! In the heart of downtown, there is a beautiful park by the river along with two educational resources (Flint RiverQuarium and Thronateeska). If you're look for down home cooking, the charming Bread House is right around the corner. Over the weekend there is a Saturday fresh market at the historic Tift Park, which is visited by Garcia's Taqueria, the best taco truck in South GA! Of course there are the common stores and restaurants here, but if you want the goods, you have to journey away from the main roads.
