plenty of rinks around. probably 15 or so i can think of off the top of my head within a 20 minute drive radius of downtown schenectady. with union college, rpi, and various stand alone rinks all easily accessible. lots of open hockey and leagues to join. i played when i was a bit younger in the NEMHL midget league (15-18) so ive probably played in the vast majority of the rinks in the area. albany devils games can be seen very cheaply (like 15$ a ticket) and the NJ devils are usually in town for pre-season hockey as well. (im a Rangers fan EFF the devils lol.) Overall its a decent area but its not city life.. pretty laid back. traffic probably isnt anything like california rush hour but it can be annoying at times. any other questions then fire away.
Awesome, thank you for the information it's greatly appreciated. What's the weather like around there? I know it's cold and it snows ect ect, but is it windy? We're just trying to accumulate any information we can before we take a trip out there to look at potential houses to buy, so any information for better or worse is appreciated.
