Rivers Ledge features brand new apartments right on the waterfront in Niskayuna, but when you’re ready to get out of the house, you’ll be happy to know that there are exciting places to visit nearby. One of those is the hamlet of Latham, NY, the perfect spot for a “day-cation.” It’s only 20 minutes away from our luxury apartment community and there are lots of activities to choose from, whether you’re looking to spend a few hours or a whole day there.
Go on a Shopping Spree
Start your day-cation right: with a shopping spree! Latham boasts a variety of options, including malls, shopping centers, and small boutiques. In fact, three of the hamlet’s shopping centers – Latham Crossing, Latham Farms, and The Shoppes at Latham Circle – are located within one mile of each other!
Thanks to the short drive from Rivers Ledge, you’ll be able to spend your time browsing the shelves instead of driving around.
Relax at the Salt Den
Latham has a variety of spas, but one of the most unique is the Salt Den. The Salt Den boasts a variety of relaxing treatments to choose from, including massages, facials, light therapy, and breathwork, but its most impressive asset has to be the Himalayan salt cave. You’ll feel all the stress of the daily grind slip away as you breathe in the purifying salt mists and sink your toes into the salty sand.
Dine in Style
Latham has plenty of options for even the pickiest of diners, but The Century House is one of the most unique places around. At this boutique hotel and restaurant, you can dine on the gorgeous porch during the summer or soak up the warmth of the fireplace in the winter—the warm and cozy vibes are present throughout!
The star of The Century House’s menu has to be the Surf and Turf, which boasts prime rib and lobster tail, but you really can’t go wrong—every item is made with care from fresh, local ingredients. The Century House is sure to become a favorite, thanks to its fantastic menu and close proximity to Rivers Ledge. Best of all, the convenient location right off Route 9 means The Century House is easy to get to, despite the exclusive feel.
Visit the Curtain Call Theatre
After enjoying dinner, catch a show at Latham’s very own Curtain Call Theatre! Don’t let its intimate setting fool you—the theatre has produced over 150 plays, and critics have raved about its incredible performances. Check out the current season’s lineup for shows that will make you laugh, cry, or even both! Full- and half-season subscriptions are also available if you’d like to attend multiple plays.
Finish the Day with Drinks and Dancing
Drinks at 215 Lounge are the perfect way to end the night—especially when they’re paired with dancing! This trendy spot is located within Philly Bar + Lounge, which boasts its own brewery and a wide variety of eclectic cocktails.
Not into dancing? No problem! The lounge has plenty of comfortable couches where you can relax, sip your drink, and enjoy the live music before heading home.
