Have you been to any of these places with young teens as a winter getaway? What did you do there?

None sound appealing to me. What made you choose these 3 places?

Those wouldn't be my first choices for a winter getaway with teens, but I have been to all 3. Cooperstown is a small little town, very remote, with only the Baseball Hall of Fame as an attraction. Springfield, MA has the Basketball Hall of Fame and a cute Dr. Seuss Museum and Sculpture Garden. Hartford has the state capitol, a science museum, and the Mark Twain house. I can't imagine spending more than a day in any of them, though Hartford and Springfield are near one another and could technically be combined. How long do you have for this trip, and what do the kids like to do?

Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame) was empty when we went there which was great and the hotel was empty too. I am sure in the summer it is more crowded and expensive. We went there and it was freezing (like the coldest weather I have ever been in).
We combined it with Howe's Cavern and then on the way home the State Museum in Albany
(and the SUNY Albany kosher dining hall-- a plus to travel there when school is in session).

Anon because I have spoken about the ridiculous cold on that trip, so just hope for 2 days without a "cold snap".
