Fall in Cooperstown
The leaves are changing, a crispness is returning to the air, the days are getting shorter, and fall is upon us in Cooperstown and Otsego County. For many, fall marks the most perfect time of the year in Cooperstown thanks to fewer crowds and more room to explore, mild days and cool nights, and who could forget, some of New York State's most breathtaking fall scenery.
Cooperstown: How to See the Foliage
Visiting Cooperstown in the fall can include all of those 'musts' while taking in the fall foliage – it wouldn't be a trip to Cooperstown without a visit to the Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, now would it? But if baseball isn't your thing, you can also see the changing leaves while exploring the arts at the Fenimore Art Museum, history and all things haunted at Hyde Hall, or the classic fall pastime of apple cider pressing at Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard, all amid the area's beautiful fall landscapes.
Fall Festivals and Events
From a ride aboard the Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad, to getting spooked on a Candlelight Ghost Tour at Hyde Hall or during The Farmers' Museum's Things That Go Bump in the Night tours, or boogying Bavarian style at Cooptoberfest, fall events offer nonstop fun throughout the season.
