Cooperstown — 6 nights

Best known as the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Cooperstown embraces Americana.

There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, tour the old-fashioned way with a train tour, sample the tasty concoctions at Brewery Ommegang, and admire the masterpieces at Fenimore Art Museum.
