      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

My son will playing baseball in Cooperstown, last week of July. Looking for some local insight into things the family can do to stay busy when hes not playing. One thing I'd like to do is go to New York City. We are driving out but have no intentions of driving in the city. How close do I need to get to catch cabs/subway, or hook up with a tour? Thanks for the help.

Poughkeepsie NY or Newburgh/Beacon area. You can park there and take the train (Metro North) right into Grand Central. It is easier than you think and your right in the middle of the "City". From there you can cab or take the subway!

Need more info, let me know!

Lots of "other" things to do in the area. The Farmers Museum is there north of the village and can be an all day activity. The Fenimore House has a lot of NY State historical items in there. Down by the waterfront there is a paddlewheel tour boat that will use about an hour and a half of your time. and of course, there is the Baseball Hall of Fame. The village itself is one huge baseball souviner place, including all the alleys, so lots to explore.

These guys hit most of the places. Stop by the Chamber of Commerce (607) 547-9983 on right side of Chestnut Street just before the only traffic light in town and they will help you out. The internet will also help you out greatly in planning your days.

I believe the Dreams Park has lots of info on things to do in the area. and still provide a bus to take the kids into town?? and don't forget about the Thursday night fireworks show.

Farmers Museum $9

Fenimore House $9

Baseball Hall of Fame $9

Package deals cheaper

Wax Museum Main Street Coop Small place with wax figures

Fly Creek Cider Mill 3 miles North of town FREE

Natty Bumpo's "Cave" East Lake Road 1 Mile out of town FREE You'll Hike up the hillside

Queen Glimmerglass boat tour on Otsego Lake Cost unknown

Brewery Ommegang FREE Tour?? FREE beer Samples?? 7 miles south of Coop on River Road Its on the opposite side of the valley from Dreams Park

Old Slugger Brewery Milford NY Tours FREE?

Soccer Hall of Fame Oneonta, NY 30 Mins south Cost unknown

Howes Caves 45 min drive from Coop near Cobleskill $11

Vromans Nose is a neat place just outside Cobleskill Short Hike 500 ft uphill to get a birds eye view of the Schoharie Valley from the mountains Cliffs Edge FREE

Another option for going to NYC is taking Amtrak from Albany-Rensselaer, NY which is about 1:15 hours from Cooperstown. The train is expensive from Albany $100 round trip per person (depending on what time you travel) although the parking is cheap about $6 a day.

Anyways gotta go theres a ton of things to do please feel free to ask me whatever you need to know as I live in the Village

I am in here a couple times a week.

If you want to know about Food, fishing and whatnot please let me know
