The Village of Cooperstown is recognized worldwide for the Baseball Hall of Fame as the game has its roots right here in central New York. Many enjoy walking along Main Street to find unique shops with merchandise and souvenirs.

Other sites like the Fenimore Art Museum or the Farmer’s Museum are also good stops. The area is full of bed and breakfast options, while many take advantage of activities on nearby Otsego and Canadarago Lakes.

The area also has plenty of golf courses and some well-known breweries for adults. Other favorites include places like the nearby Fly Creek Cider House, where kids can interact with animals and get plenty of treats.
