June is very likely the best month of the year for a relaxing visit to the Cooperstown Area. The weather is warm, but not too hot; everything is open for the season, but it is still on the quiet side. Although many schools in the southern US finish their year in May, most schools in the Northeast don’t get out until mid to late June. Family vacation season starts in July!
Here’s a list of a few of the things going on in the area this June (not in date order)!
The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival presents The Schubert Trout Quintet for a special Father’s Day performance on Sunday, June 19 at 7:30 pm at the Otesaga Resort Hotel. http://bit.ly/1p4YrRM
