          Saratoga region, Schenectady has an incredible past
         stretching from its colonization in 1661, through
        the opening of the Erie Canal and onward toward
       the birth of General Electric. Today, Schenectady is
      known for its historic districts and wonderful cultural
     venues. The city has a resident ballet, symphony and
    several theaters including Proctors, a restored vaudeville
    theater that also houses The GE Theater, capable of
   screening Iwerks cinema, and 440 Upstairs, an intimate
   live-performance setting. You can see an impressive array
   of performances including shows direct from Broadway,
   international ballet and opera, and nationally known
   performers. There are also several community theaters,
    art galleries, special events, museums and numerous
     historic sites – including the Stockade, New York’s
     oldest historic district.

     Just a short drive from downtown, nature enthusiasts
      will enjoy the nine nature preserves and parks located
       in the county with hiking, fishing and hunting
        opportunities. The Mohawk-Hudson Bike trail
