Nightlife in Cooperstown
What is there to do in Cooperstown after, say, dinner time?
Re: Nightlife in Cooperstown
Not much. There are three or four places to drink.
Other than that, the thing to do is to drive to Oneonta (40 mins) and go to the
movies. And the 24 hour Walmart in Oneonta is open too! There is a good diner in Oneonta called "The Neptune" as well.
Back in Cooperstown:In the summer you can walk down to the lake and sit on a bench. You can go to an ice cream place and have ice cream. There is a big gym in town called "The Clark Center" which is really nice and you can buy a day pass to use their facilities.
Its pretty quiet.
Re: Nightlife in Cooperstown
The bar downstairs at the Otesaga Resort Hotel had a Jazz dancing night on Saturday. I'd say it wasn't very packed or busy but hey, I guess if you're bored, it's something to do. Live music. About 10 people there. There's also a bar just through the doors where a mix of locals and guests of the hotel hang. There were much more people there actually.
Travel Tips for Cooperstown
Absolutely visit, tour, taste...
Absolutely visit, tour, taste Brewery Ommegang. Been to Belgium. This beer from Cooperstown holds its own! What a treasure. Even if you can manage to ignore the baseball crowd.
The Farmer's Museum is worldclass. The Native American collection at the Fennimore House is also a must see.
I haven't taken this tour in about 10 years, but I went several times as a kid and loved it every time. My friend worked as a tour guide there last summer and enjoyed it (at least the first 100 times!). This is one of the biggest caverns available for tours. The tours last 80 minutes, and take you through several parts of the cavern, including a boat ride. Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and "juniors" 12-15, $9 for children 5-11, free under 5.
The Farmer's Museum
The Farmer's museum features 3 distinct areas. An exhibit detailing the history of the Lake Ostego region, a recreated hand-carved carousel and band orgran and an interpretive farm village featuring 1800's living methods.
All are exceedingly well done and worth a visit. Younger children will especially enjoy the Carousel (only $.25 per ride!) and the chance to get up close with some animals. Older ones may enjoy the blacksmithing and broom making demos among others.
Allow 1-2 hours. Combination tickets with Baseball HOF and Fenimore available.
The Fenimore Art Museum
Beautiful Museum on Lake Otsego. The terrace & grounds were beautiful with chairs & gazebo's on the lake. The foliage was perfect for photographs.
We explored collections on all three floors seeing varied art. African American, Folk & Native American art was were presented. They had very old Presidential election memorabilia; quilts, paintings, signs, hats & pottery. The architecture of the museum was attractive, it looked new & very bright. There was an interactive family exhibit re. image & prejudices - it was well done.
Admission was $11.00 and we spent about an hour and a half at the Art Museum. We walked through the coffee shop to get to the huge terrace. There was a gift shop carrying books, children's materials, reproductions & jewelry.
Saturday morning we walked over to the enclosed Farmers Market & enjoyed looking at the picture perfect produce. There were tables with tablecloths & fresh baked goods & coffee. The fruits & vegetables were so perfect that they didn't look real. Handicrafts, syrup, poultry & meats, cheese, and photographs of Cooperstown were also for sale. We bought beautiful heirloom tomatoes for $4.50 lb., by far the most expensive but the most beautiful.
