The baseball diamonds may be quiet, but the fun never stops in Cooperstown and Otsego County—and remember, unless it's Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's Day, it's always game time at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Here, in Cooperstown, the off-season means adventure without the crowds.
Locals know cold-weather months offer the best chance to relax and reconnect over comfort foods and unique libations. If you are looking for a dish native to the Central New York area, Chicken Riggies from Bocca Osteria is where it's at! Or head down to Oneonta's funky Yellow Deli to fill your belly in a groovy setting to find peace of mind. Normally open 24 hours, 5 days a week, and occasionally in the evening, you can enjoy live music while you grab a bite.
If you prefer a wider scope, venture out to rural downtown districts to discover more of our small-town charm and resident favorites...places like Cherry Valley’s artsy charm and fun shopping opportunities like at the Plaide Palette and Coco and Cordelia's. Oneonta’s Green Toad Bookstore, and Fly Creek’s Heartworks Quilts & Fabrics. Visit the Artisans' Guild in Oneonta or the Cooperstown Art Association's Gallery and Shop full of creations from regional makers.
You’ll also want to keep an eye on special events taking place throughout the winter months in and around Cooperstown.
Packages are also offered occasionally to make planning your next trip a snap!
