3 Reasons to Visit Cooperstown in 2022

We’re kicking off the new year with our favorite things to do and top reasons to visit Cooperstown in 2022. So grab your calendars and start planning your 2022 trip today!

Get outdoors

Let’s face it, we are still living in uncertain times and for the safety of travelers, Cooperstown is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. From hiking and biking to swimming and kayaking, there are plenty of ways to enjoy Cooperstown in a safe way. 

Visit Glimmerglass State Park for hiking (mostly year-round) and beach days in the summer. Or get out on the water with activities such as kayaking, canoeing, or paddleboarding. For those who prefer the assistance of two wheels, there is also an abundance of biking trails in Cooperstown and nearby areas. Spring through fall, biking in Cooperstown is a great outdoor activity that most anyone can enjoy. 

2022 Induction Ceremony | Baseball Hall of Fame

The Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is possibly one of the most popular annual events in Cooperstown. For any baseball fans and their family, this is the event to attend, even if just once in your life. The event will be held outside on July 24, 2022, on the grounds of the Clark Sports Center. Electees such as Gil Hodges, Jim Kaat, Minnie Miñoso and Tony Oliva, and Bud Fowler will be inducted along with others in 2022. 

Bed and Brew with Brewery Ommegang

Of course, one of the best reasons to visit Cooperstown in 2022 is for our Bed and Brew experience packages at The Inn at Cooperstown. Every year we host our Bed and Brew series with Brewery Ommegang on various dates throughout the year. The Inn at Cooperstown in partnership with Brewery Ommegang offers an exclusive, limited availability two-night Bed & Brew package for the ultimate beer enthusiast.

Enjoy VIP treatment at the award-winning Brewery Ommegang. Upon arrival at Brewery Ommegang, the brewery will be closed to the public and only guests of the Bed & Brew package will join a brewer for a seated tasting of Brewery Ommegang’s finest brews, all accompanied by individual charcuterie boards for each table. 

Indulge in an amazing multi-course, food and beer pairing gourmet dinner. After dinner and drinks, rest and relax with your two-night stay at The Inn at Cooperstown, also included in the package. Take home with you memories that will last a lifetime and branded keepsakes including beer glasses, custom growler, and clothing! This is one of our most popular packages and experiences our guests enjoy with a stay at The Inn at Cooperstown.
