It's a gracious start to the day whether taken in the Glimmerglass dining room or on the veranda. Cooperstown has become an upscale, iconic American village (pop- ulation 1,800). Many of the locally owned stores cater to baseball fans, especially those close to the museum. Among our favorite retail shops were Cooperstown Bat Co. (118 Main St.), makers of customized bats for teams and special occasions, and Cooperstown Beverage Exchange (73 Main St.), a tasting room and retail store for Cooperstown Distillery and other local makers of artisanal spirits. The Exchange transforms into a lounge at night. The Cooperstown Trolley stops at major attractions and runs Memorial Day through Labor Day; a one-day pass costs $2 per person (free for ages five and under). But the countryside is lovely and worth exploring by car. The 37- mile Cooperstown Beverage Trail, the state of New York's first official cuisine trail, winds through farmland to the breweries, wineries, bour- bon distillery, and an historic cider mill featured at the Exchange. We stopped at the 157-year-old Fly Creek Cider Mill and Orchard (288 Goose Street, Fly Creek) for lunch outdoors at the mill's restaurant 190 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s p r i n g 2 0 1 6 "the countryside is lovely" excursions Cooperstown & Charlotte Valley Railroad T H I S I S C O O P E R S T O W N .
