Play Together

Landing Pg_Slideshow: Play Together

With so many exciting activities for children and adults alike, your family will be begging for a longer stay.

As a parent, you want to create moments your children will remember for a lifetime. In Cooperstown and Otsego County, a wide variety of family-friendly activities means precious memories are just around the corner. Knowing that sometimes the smallest people are the biggest fans, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and museum offers a variety of kid-friendly activities and exhibits. Kids of all ages will be enthralled as they explore the history of their heroes, and The Sandlot Kids' Clubhouse features experiences designed for younger audiences.

The Farmers' Museum is the perfect combination of education and imagination. This living history museum and purposeful village, complete with a Blacksmith Shop, Pharmacy, Bump Tavern and working farm, will transport you to the mid-1800s. Perfect for families that want to get hands-on, children are encouraged to interact with the farm animals and can even milk a cow. Be sure to see the Country Fair and the Empire State Carousel before stopping in the Pharmacy for old-fashioned candy.

Fly Creek Cider Mill and Orchard is another fun family activity rooted in history. Built in 1856, the Mill still presses fresh apple cider the old-fashioned way, and you're welcome to taste it fresh from the press! You won't be able to resist the Mill Store Marketplace, which offers samples of savory and sweet treats ranging from cheeses and dips to fudge and freshly-picked apples. Take something home or grab a bite to eat at the Snack Barn & Bakery while the kids explore Tractor Land and feed the Mill Pond ducks. Tell Thomas the Tank Engine to step aside. The Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad will take you chugging through beautiful countryside as it transports you back in history. Built in 1869, this train offers an historic travel experience and even has specialty themed rides around the holidays.

For some active family fun, check out Barnyard Swing Miniature Golf and Family Fun Center where you can play 18 holes and challenge the kids to a game of laser tag. Or, head to the Clark Sports Center to really expend some energy. With 64,000 square feet of indoor track, courts, bowling, swimming and climbing, and 17 acres of playing fields outside, the whole family will find an activity to suit their speed.
