Today we got up in good time so that we could head out from the campground for Cooperstown, NY and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Our one book informed us that there really isn't street parking in Cooperstown for an RV so we should probably park in one of their free lots on the outskirts of town and take the trolley in to town. We decided that was a great idea and parked in their red lot. Of course after we parked and were headed to the trolley stop we noticed that the trolley was not running today because it only runs on the weekends in the fall. Luckily the lot we picked was really only about a half mile away from the hall of fame so we just walked on over.
We went straight to the Baseball Hall of Fame and hung out for hours reading tons of stuff
We picked the Doubleday Café (next to Doubleday field). Jared got chili and a Greek style hamburger . I got their version of the Philly Cheesesteak, of course nothing like a real Philly Cheesesteak (which I was figured it wouldn’t be up to par), but still a good steak and cheese sandwich. After finishing up lunch we headed over to Doubleday Field to check it out.
It was raining pretty good by the time we finished up lunch so we had a nice rainy walk to Doubleday Field. Luckily we were able to go inside and sit in the stands undercover for a little bit
We decided we were pretty much done with downtown Cooperstown and headed back to the RV to drive down the road a ways to the Ommegang Brewery. We decided not to do a tour and to just head to the bar to try some of their beers. They had a sampler, which were only 3 - 5oz beers for $7.50. We decided this was a little over priced and each just picked out one pint to try out. Jared had the Hennepin, which he thought was just ok and I enjoyed when I had a sip. I had the Ommegang Abbey Dubbel, which was pretty good. After finishing up our beers we headed out to find a campground for the night.
