Cooperstown + what else?

We will be in Cooperstown the first week in August to watch grandson play baseball on famous field. We are traveling from Northern NJ and are looking for other attractions along the way. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

You could check out the museums in town. The Farmers Museum and the Fenimore are great alternatives to the HOF. Howe's Caverns and Secret Caverns are fun to tour (45 minutes east). In the Catskills, the ice caves and hiking at Sam's Point Preserve (Ellenville) and hiking/biking at Minnewaska SP (New Pultz) are great options. The oldest street in the US is in New Paltz ... the tour of the buildings on the street is interesting. The highest tiered waterfall (Kaaterskill) in NYS is in the Catskills and is spectacular and worth the hike (about 2 hours south east of C'town). You could canoe or raft on the Delaware River.

The NYS Museum in Albany is interesting. In the lower Hudson Valley, Storm King Art Center (near Newburgh) is an outdoor sculpture park that I contend you don't need to love art to enjoy. You could tour West Point but you need to do it as part of a tour group.

These are just a few quick suggestions ... alot depends on your interests and the direction you are coming. Hope this helps!
