Speckling the shimmering expanse of the St. Lawrence River are hundreds of picturesque isles known as the Thousand Islands, a superb setting for leisurely boat sight-seeing cruises out to historic atrractions or a longer stay in a local cottage.
Creaking wagon wheels and the clatter of horseshoes break the quiet of a balmy summer day at Cooperstown's Farmers' Museum, an open-air facility that offers visitors a rare glimpse of life on a farm long before the advent of nosiy tractors and high-tech irrigation systems. It's the mid-19th-century at the Lippitt Farmstead, where you can catch harvest, sheep shearing, planting and newly born lambs depending on the time of year. Visit the changing exhibit space housed in the main barn, and explore some of the other authentic historic buildings in the associated village like tavern and printing shop as you take in the museums highlights.
