Visit Nearby Fly Creek in the Scenic Byway Corridor

Fly Creek is in the Heart of the Scenic Byway Corridor

Last week, we highlighted Route 20, America’s Main Street and New York’s longest highway, noting that 30 miles on either side of the Scenic Byway is considered the Scenic Byway Corridor. The Scenic Byway travels through Richfield Springs, East Springfield and Cherry Valley – all with their own special charm.

We, here in Fly Creek, smack dab in the heart of the Central New York Region, are happy to be located within the Corridor, in Otsego County.

We, too, have historic sites, specialty shops, breweries, wineries and distilleries, farmers’ markets and community events, as well museums and even baseball nestled into our own cozy little communities.

The hamlet of Fly Creek, a rural community about 10 minutes west of the village of Cooperstown, is close enough to many northeast American cities for great family vacations without incurring the time or expense of long-distance travel. If you live in one of these cities, you can get here by car within a matter of hours.

  • 264 miles west of Boston
  • 141 miles east and northeast of Buffalo
  • 196 miles northwest of NYC
  • 220 miles north and northwest of Philadelphia
  • 290 miles northeast of Washington DC
  • 212 miles southwest of Montreal
  • 165 miles southeast of Ottawa
  • 168 miles east and southeast of Toronto


Cooperstown: A Must-See Destination Spot

The village of Cooperstown, the absolute perfect family vacation spot, is about 10 minutes east of Fly Creek, on dazzling Lake Otsego.

Ranking as #12 in Best Places to Visit in NY State, Cooperstown is known as the Village of Museums, hosting both The Farmers’ Museum and Fenimore Art Museum, among others.

The Fenimore Art Museum has one of the finest collections of American, Folk, and Native American art in the world. The Farmers’ Museum is a working village that recreates life and business of the 19th century, with a plethora of fascinating displays, demonstrations, and programs that immerse us in days gone by. Kids of all ages amaze at the old-timey country fair with games, activities and attractions.

I am about to admit something. But, if you tell anyone, I will deny it. I do not know the first thing about most sports – especially baseball. There! I said it. When I first arrived here last summer, I really couldn’t understand all this baseball hoopla. Now I get it. Cooperstown really is a magnet for all things baseball. Wait til you see the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

They know they've done a good job when they witness the look of the joy in their guests' faces.
