The Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau have a few things planned for the holiday season.

In their shop and relax package, people receive movie tickets, spa treatments, and a Visa gift card to do a little holiday shopping.

There are also things coming up for the whole family to enjoy. "Families can come in spend the night, November 30th kicks off the festival of lights at Chehaw, as well as the Santa clause exhibit at Thronateeska," said CVB Rashelle Beasley.

Beasley said these hotel packages offer a nice alternative to having visiting family stay at your house over the holidays.
