Cooperstown #8 On Fodor’s List Of Best Small Towns

COOPERSTOWN – Cooperstown, celebrated this spring by “I Love NY” and honored by President Obama’s visit, has another promotional feather in its touristic hat: Fodor’s Travel has just selected it as eighth on a list of ten of “America’s Best Small Towns.”

“Cooperstown isn’t just a destination for sports lovers,” the listing says, “with cultural attractions including the Cooperstown Chamber Music Festival, the annual Glimmerglass Opera season, and the Fenimore Art Museum. Outdoorsy types, meanwhile, can enjoy golfing at Leatherstocking Golf Course, boating on Otsego Lake, and hiking in Glimmerglass State Park. Beer lovers shouldn’t pass up a chance to tour the esteemed Brewery Ommegang.”

Is the slogan, “Believe it or not this is Cooperstown,” finally catching on?

Fodor’s numero uno is Telluride, Colo., “replete with small-town charm that many other major ski areas lack,” and numero diez is Bardtown, Kty., “a stopover in Kentucky bourbon country … where it’s easy to be charmed by the Georgian architecture and local hospitality.”
