Oneonta, NY

Explore Oneonta, NY - the "City of the Hills"

Oneonta, situated just south of Cooperstown in the Susquehanna Valley, is known as the "City of the Hills," and is a stand-alone eclectic community with diverse offerings in the arts, outdoor recreation, history and more. 

Oneonta Arts and Colleges

Bohemian, funky, renaissance: these are words that come to mind when trying to pinpoint what it is that makes the tight-knit community of Oneonta unique and special. An emerging arts mecca of sorts, downtown Oneonta features four concert venues, including the Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center, in addition to a number of small galleries and artisan shops. And with a variety of seasonal events and Main Street attractions, Oneonta makes for a destination that will provide fun for the whole family. Add the presence of students and faculty from Hartwick College and SUNY Oneonta to the mix – making Oneonta the quintessential college town – and you'll discover another dimension to its small-city excitement.

Vacation in Oneonta

Catering to butterfly enthusiasts, BBQ aficionados, and baseball enthusiasts looking for compliments to the Baseball Hall of Fame experience, a visit to the charming community of Oneonta will be one where travelers with a variety of interests will be satisfied. Escape your world and be transported to the lush and tropical greenery of the Joseph L. Popp Butterfly Conservatory filled with birds, butterflies and more, tantalize your taste for sweet BBQ dishes at the world-famous Brooks House of BBQ, explore Main Street's quaint and locally-run shops, take in a game at Neahwa Park – home of the Oneonta Outlaws – or enjoy a leisurely outing along the Susquehanna River. A short day trip to Cooperstown brings travelers through Milford, a small town with lots to offer.  And at the end of a fun-filled day, unwind and relax in one of the many Oneonta hotels and motels, B&Bs, or cozy cabins, offering convenient locations in the heart of downtown Oneonta or quiet seclusion in Otsego County's picturesque countryside.  If the outdoors is what you crave, check out the bike trails in Oneonta or Robert V.
