While the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum gives Cooperstown a sporty reputation, it has much more to offer—even in the winter months. From breweries and top-rated restaurants to outdoor adventures and picturesque scenery, Cooperstown has something for every kind of traveler to fill a winter weekend trip—and then some!

From the durable windshields in our cars to incredible objects of art that go back centuries, glass is nearly everywhere you look. The Corning Museum of Glass is the world’s greatest tribute to the material and it’s located in New York State, an hour outside of Ithaca in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. A vibrant college town, Ithaca boasts over 150 waterfalls across 10 square miles (no wonder “Ithaca is Gorges!”) and more restaurants per capita than New York City, which makes it a great place to visit in all seasons.​

Want to see one of the world's finest collections of modern and contemporary art and get sprayed by waterfalls all in one day? Take a weekend trip to Buffalo, which was named one of the world's top 52 spots to visit in 2018 by The New York Times. Niagara Falls' dramatic cascades are spectacular in any season and Buffalo’s night scene is just as vibrant as its art. As a perfect complement to seeing this natural wonder, you can take in some of the best that Buffalo has to offer, from world-class art and architecture to entertainment and foodeven if you’ve only got a weekend.
