Cooperstown

The National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum is a must-see. It’s home to thousands of the game’s most important and unique artifacts. The 2009 induction weekend is July 24-26. Doubleday Field is only a few blocks away. Main Street is filled with baseball shops and great restaurants. It also borders picturesque Otsego Lake. Once here, you will not want to miss all of the other attractions and recreational opportunities that make this region so special.

The Cooperstown Beverage Trail has quickly become a must-do for visitors, where tours and samplings at Bear Pond Wines, Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown Brewing Company, and the Fly Creek Cider Mill provide a true “taste” of the area. The history buff must not miss a trip to The Farmers’ Museum, where they will take a step back in time to 1845. For art enthusiasts, the Fenimore Art Museum and Cooperstown Art Association, as well as the Smithy-Pioneer Gallery, offer inspiring exhibits.
