With gas prices as high as they are if you are going to take a daytrip, from the Capital Region, the destination had better be worth it. You might take a ride to see the explosion of colors the leaves give us. Maybe a great meal would make the ride worth it or anything Halloween related?

I have a place where you could include all 3 of those reasons to take the ride from Albany and it's called Cava. With the leaves just starting to turn, plan your 90-minute drive during peak-season and end up at a restaurant with great food and out of this world Halloween décor. You've not seen a restaurant like this before.
