Charming Cooperstown, New York: Great Food, Relaxation, and Baseball
Food, Relaxation, and Baseball in New York
Whether you crave incredible food, a serene place to relax, or you just love baseball, Cooperstown, New York will be well worth the trip. Here you will find relaxing temperatures (low to mid 80's) in the middle of the summer. Green valleys with rolling hills will envelop you and the horizon will seem endless. Placid blue lakes will bring an unfamiliar peacefullness that strangely the ocean does not possess.
A charming quaint smalltown atmosphere awaits you downtown. There you will find the National Baseball Hall of Fame, endless shops filled with baseball memorabilia of every kind, lots of mouth-watering hand-tossed pizza, quait and comfortable coffee shops, and creative delicious cuisine will surround you. On top of this, you might even see a famous face or two.
The most beautiful hanging flower pots you've ever seen, adorn every lamp pole on the main street. I was enthralled with the fabulous show of flowers bestowed by the shop below. Walk just a few blocks down the road, passing the most charming, well-kept cottages and estates, and you will find that placid blue lake. Take morning strolls along these quiet serene streets and visit the local coffee dive for that must-have cup of joe. It's time to go to Cooperstown, isn't it?

Stay at the grand Otesega Resort Hotel, located within walking distance of downtown. According to one review, "This is an old world hotel that still has great old world atmosphere and charm. Relaxing on the rocking chairs on the porch looking at the lake and the golf course. It is a very special place that tries to balance keeping up with the times yet making you feel like you stepped back a hundred years." Providing upscale and casual dining, swimming, golf, and incredible lake views, this place has it all.
