We are looking to break up a long drive later this month, and will be stopping overnight in the Albany, NY area. We will only be there from (probably) late afternoon until whenever we have to check out the next morning. Anyone have a suggestion of somewhere we can take LO (19 months) to let her burn off some cooped-up-in-the-car energy? Bonus points if we can get dinner in the area, too. It doesn't have to be a tourist attraction or kid-centric place; if there were an IKEA in the area, I'd go there.

I haven't booked a hotel/Air B&B yet, so I'm also open to suggestions about where to stay. We will be coming from the south and heading east from Albany, so we could stay a little ways in either of those two directions.
