I'm coming for a wedding... Is all the touristy things worth staying an extra day for?

by mingomatic

Is it worth staying an extra day to do the baseball touristy attractions?

Ming, the Baseball Hall of Fame is really outstanding. If you're even the slightest bit interested in our national sport, you'd kick yourself afterwards for missing this shrine while you're in Cooperstown. The previous poster pointed out some of the other interesting historic things to do, and I don't want to discourage you from enjoying those (or the beautiful scenery)...but I can't imagine being there and NOT going to the HOF.

Mr. Ming,

Does a fish swim? Does a bear s**t in the woods?

The Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York is an American shrine that is equivalent in expression and feeling to St. Paul's Cathedral in London, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Great Wall of China, all combined and rolled into one. When you step into that shrine to our national pastime, you had better have a chaw of Red Man handy, or at least a pocket full of bubble gum.

All kidding aside, the only thing missing in this homage to major league baseball is a commemorative plaque honoring the on-field exploits of one of the greatest hitters in the modern history of the game; number 14, Pete Rose.

So yeah, it's worth it.

I agree with the above posters. Cooperstown is Hometown USA. If coming from a large city such as Los Angeles, as I did, and driving the streets into Cooperstown main street is like looking at a Norman Rockwell painting. If you know baseball, it will be a thrill to visit the Hall of Fame. If you don't know baseball, you will come away with a better knowledge of what makes young boys and some girls want to play catch with a baseball. Baseball. It is America's past-time, loved and just as American as apple pie. Stop in town and walk around. Go a few miles out of town and eat at DiMaggio's Home of the Cooperstown Hot Dog and have another American favorite, the Hot Dog with the works. DiMaggio's is across the street from Cooperstown Dreams Park about four miles south of Main Street in town, on Route 28. Makes me want to shout; "Play Ball."

Travel Tips for Cooperstown

Visitor Information Building

by Bwana_Brown

On arriving in Cooperstown, I happened by chance to come across their Visitor Information Building (Chamber of Commerce) located on Chestnut Street (Highway 80) near the centre of town.

Since I was a bit early to check into the Resort and had no information whatsoever on the town, I decided to see what help was at hand! The lady staffing the front desk was very helpful, quickly pulling out a map of the town to show me where both the Resort and the local attractions were located. They even had a big parking lot out the back that she recommended I use to avoid the hassles of parking along the streets. Armed with my fist full of information, I headed off on foot to kill a few hours before checking in at the Resort.

Great Fishing

by QuiltinMom

We hired CP Charter for our trip Saturday morning. It was a dense fog, but Chris found us and we had a great morning trolling for and catching trout. Chris had all the gear. We did have to bring our own water, snacks but no big deal.

Doubleday Field

by apbeaches

Nice to walk in, sit on the grandstands & see the historic field. Doubleday Field is home to the annual Hall of Fame game every summer in which two major league teams play. It was built in 1939 and seats 9,000.

Don't Forget the Negro League Ballplayers

by zrim

Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell, Satchel Paige. Legends, all of them. It is great that while they may have been segregated from white ballplayers in the first half of the 20th century, they are enshrined at Cooperstown side by side. No question that these guys could flat out play the game.

The Fenimore Art Museum

by PetraG

Don't miss The Fenimore Art Museum with its spectacular American Indian Wing. Displayed in elegant buildings overlooking Otsego Lake, the Museum collections are remarkable both for their breathtaking beauty and for the glimpse they give us of life in earlier times. Wonderful folk art, Hudson River landscapes, James Fenimore Cooper memorabilia, and the renowned Eugene and Clare Thaw Collection of American Indian Art. Don't miss the multi-media show in the auditorium, the carefully-stocked museum shop, or Fenimore Café with terrace-garden seating and panoramic view of Otsego Lake.
