Who needs to leave the area when one of America's favorite small town destination's is right in our back yard!

I know sometimes I take for granted how great of an area we live in here in Upstate New York. We have bustling downtown city life in Albany, Schenectady and Troy and natures playground right in our back yard in the Adirondacks or the Catskills. And then there are the great small town destinations.

Cooperstown is already legendary because of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and now the legend is growing as it has been named Expedia's 2nd Best Small Town Destination in the US! The ranking is based on an Expedia poll that was taken by 1,000 people. Let's face it. Between a great downtown, the Hall of Fame, Ommegang Brewery and Otsego Lake right there - ya gotta agree with America, right?

Cape Cod landed at #1 on the rankings, which you can see here.
