Summer crowds have died down, giving you an excellent opportunity to explore the small town’s beauty at your leisure. We know the best way to celebrate the new season if you’re headed this way for autumn. Discover it all with these fall activities in Cooperstown!

Leaf Peeping

The vibrant green leaves among the trees turn to beautiful golden hues as Fall approaches. Many visitors gather in Cooperstown to do their leaf-peeping, and we know where to take in the fall colors! Throughout October, the Charlotte Valley Railroad is hosting Fall Foliage Excursions. Hop on one of the historic trains and take in the autumn beauty surrounding the Susquehanna River Valley.

Fall Fishing

You have an excellent opportunity for an autumn getaway and take on the Ostego Lake waters with some fall fishing! The calmer waters bring largemouth and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, bluegill, and yellow perch to the shore, and the area becomes an angler’s paradise.

A Trip to the Brewery

Spend some time in the crisp fall weather with a stop at one of the great breweries in the area! Fly Creek Cider Mill is home to a historic orchard that brews delicious hard apple cider and wine. Head over to their taproom and sample unique flavors like their apple cranberry wine and apple raspberry cider.

Wildlife Watching

Fall is the prime time to see local wildlife scurry about in Cooperstown! Bird watchers should especially have their eyes peeled. Central New York is home to many bird species, and you’re likely to see them when exploring the local nature. Take a trip to the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society Sanctuary and spot home hawks and other wildlife.
