Travel Log: Cooperstown, NY

IMG_8970_matteresized

Recently, Jason, Addison, and I were able to spend some time in Upstate New York, where Jason is from. Jason and I have been together 14 years, and I had still never seen the place where he was born and spent the first part of his life. This summer, we had a dear friend who was celebrating a promotion and we really wanted to be able to celebrate with him, so we made a last minute decision to get to Delaware (where our friend is) and also to New York.

I was never really into many sports, but the one sport I always loved playing and watching was baseball. I played tee-ball, then softball, and grew up cheering the Texas Rangers on at home and at their stadium. Then, when I saw A League of their Own, I knew I wanted to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. So, when I found out that Cooperstown was only an hour’s drive from Jason’s hometown, it was a must-do! It was such a cool experience and I had no idea what a gorgeous place that Cooperstown is. It’s located right on Otsego Lake and is so picturesque.

We spent the first part of our day at the Baseball Hall of Fame, which we all loved. We also got to spend the day with Jason’s grandma and one of our close friends who now lives in the area – I envy both of them. 😉 After the museum, we just enjoyed meandering about town and a leisurely lunch, right on Otsego Lake.
