The cities that surround Eddy Senior Living form an extended community for our residents, which is why many seniors and their families consider these neighboring towns when choosing a retirement home. For residents at Glen Eddy senior living community, Schenectady, Rexford, Latham, Colonie and Amsterdam are just a short drive away, and provide seniors with a variety of things to see and do.
Proctors Theater and Rivers Casino are big draws to “the Electric City”, but the Via Aquarium and Museum of Science and Innovation are great for day trips with the grandkids, as well. Schenectady is also home to dozens of annual events, such as the Stockade Outdoor Art Show and the Chili Chowdown, as well as hundreds of restaurants and retailers. Learn more >
For fall pumpkin and apple picking, Glen Eddy seniors and their families head to Bowman Orchards in Rexford NY. A small hamlet of Saratoga County in the town of Clifton Park, Rexford is a charming rural town – perfect for a drive in the country. Located along the banks of the Mohawk River, Rexford is also a great spot for boating and other outdoor recreational activities.
There’s nothing like a baseball game to signal summer, and for that, seniors head to Shuttleworth Park in Amsterdam – home to the Amsterdam Mohawks of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. Amsterdam’s former National Guard Armory is also a popular landmark. Now a bed and breakfast known as the Amsterdam Castle, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Colonie is probably most well-known for the Albany International Airport, but Colonie Center, with its many restaurants and national retailers, is quite the shopping mecca. You’ll also find 850 acres of recreational parks and trails here, including the 36-hole Town of Colonie Golf Course, a 5.5 mile section of the Mohawk Hudson Bike/Hike Trail, and the Mohawk River Park and Pool.
Located in the town of Colonie, Latham is a popular suburb of Albany. In fact, some of our residents’ families live in the town, and can attest to how easy it is to visit their loved ones here at Glen Eddy. Our seniors also frequent the shops and restaurants at Latham Farms shopping center, and enjoy a round of golf at Mill Road Acres public golf course, which features 18 holes and a driving range.
