Welcome To Our Lovingly Created Cooperstown Travel And Vacation Site
Hi, my name is Eric Hurwitz and I love Cooperstown, N.Y. No, not in a marketing or tourist way, but as a real every day working class person whose family has found a deep connection with Cooperstown and surrounding Otsego County. Although our family does not live in Cooperstown (yet), it feels like home. Traveling scenic Route 20 West through all the modest, friendly small towns, and scenic hills and mountains, the anticipation of arriving in Cooperstown never grows tired and actually gets stronger each year. When turning the corner onto quaint Main Street, our eyes brighten up just like a child with the very first visit. A timeless, tree-lined "Main Street USA look" becomes fully realized -- the feeling is simply incredible. The every-step-of-the-way memorable experiences have become less of a Cooperstown vacation and more of a meaningful connection to close friendships formed, the beautiful land, the scenic waters, the sweet smell of the rural air, cultural richness and, ultimately, the closest thing to small town Americana that we have ever experienced.
