Albany sits at the center of Southwest Georgia, a storied region closely tied to America’s early Indian culture, the antebellum age of the Old South and the timeless sport of fishing and hunting. Lying below the land around Albany is the Floridan Aquifer, an ocean of fresh water that feeds the area’s rivers and creeks and fuels its economy. Outdoor adventure, the arts, shopping, dining and the friendliest folks anywhere—Albany has it all! With so much to see and do, you’ll want to visit again and again.
