Day 3 – Oneonta or Cooperstown, NY – Red Shed brewery
Travel today is across New York State where you overnight in Oneonta, NY just south of Cooperstown, lodging in Cooperstown itself is possible, but expensive.
For dinner tonight you visit the Red Shed Brewery where your tour includes a “Beers of the Week Sampler.” With plenty of outdoor seating, an inside taproom, and a relaxed atmosphere, Red Shed Brewery is a welcoming local hangout. And we are one of the few breweries with food in the region. In addition to fresh pub favorites, our menu offers vegetarian options made with local ingredients.
Day 4 – Baseball Hall of Fame – Cooperstown
This morning your group will visit The National Baseball Hall of Fame, one of our country’s greatest treasures. It’s mission is to “relive the history of the National Pastime, through artifacts from historic records, to the plaques of the game’s greatest players in the Hall of Fame Gallery.” Once inside, that history comes to life, perhaps you’ll like the New York Yankees display, the Abbott and Costello “Who’s on First,” movie clip, a wonderful baseball card display, or the actual Hall of Fame where you can read plaques all day on all the great players inducted into this illustrious museum. In a park-like setting near the shore of Otsego Lake this is a must-see for the baseball fan . The displays are of sport’s history, victories and reminds of all of simpler times. To many this visit will be simply, one of life’s great joys.
Part of your visit will be a special program, an Artifact Spotlight in the Bullpen Theater. It’s a presentation by an authenticator who will show you items not on display, but part of the archives, that could relate to your hometown favorite team or one of the members in The Hall.
Following that program, your afternoon from lunch through dinner is free time. Some of your group members may spend the entire afternoon in the the museum. Others will spend the day browsing through the delightful shops and restaurants of this quaint downtown. It’s a very comfortable pedestrian community just a few blocks long, but with so many choices your group will stay busy and happy until after dinner. Cooperstown has been nostalgically called “Main Street USA,” there are no franchise restaurants or stores, the buildings have been standing for decades and the feel is that Americana.
Day 5 – Woodstock – Return Home
As you start for home, your group will stop at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, a National Registry Historic Site where the 1969 Woodstock Festival occurred. It’s a place where you can reach across time and step into the past. A place that holds the spirit of a generation who stood at the vanguard of history and changed the world. A place where musically everything that came after, started here. It’s a museum and much more honoring the decade that ushered in a new world.
Lunch is included for your group and if time we will schedule a special program.
