The folks at Architectural Digest have decided upon The 25 Best Small Towns in America. These are picturesque, charming and historical spots that would make great places to visit for a weekend getaway or maybe even permanent relocation.

One of our Central New York towns made the list. It no doubt scored high points for its beautiful natural setting, its charming retro buildings--both commercial and residential--and its historical significance.

Cooperstown made the cut. From the article in Architectural Digest, here are the reasons Cooperstown is special:

While you should stop by the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, you don't have to be a sports aficionado to enjoy the town. Brewery Ommegang is located here, as is the Fenimore Art Museum, which houses an extraordinary collection of American folk art and American Indian art. The town was a popular summer retreat starting in the mid-1800s, and many of its historic lakeside estates are still used today. The grand Otesaga Hotel, built in 1909, is a local landmark."

Cooperstown's in good company. Carmel, California; Breckenridge, Colorado; Mystic, Connecticut; Taos, New Mexico and Stowe, Vermont are some of the others on the list. The entire article can be found right here.

Are there any other Central New York towns that deserve to make the list?
