Any fan of baseball has heard the name “Cooperstown.” But they may not know of its reputation as being America’s Perfect Village. This upper state New York retreat is home to peaceful views of Lake Otsego, lush New England Foliage, and a quaint small town appearance. Despite having been founded in 1786, the village has retained much of its original charm. Visitors can look forward to many interesting landmarks, as well as plenty of opportunities for their favorite outdoor recreational activities.

Built before the 2nd World War, The Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles on Fairfax and Third is something you won’t want to miss. In July 1934, a contingent of farmers pulled their trucks onto an expanse of empty land at the property known as Gilmore Island at the corner of Third and Fairfax in Los Angeles. They displayed their produce on the tailgates of their vehicles. Also, to their delight – customers quickly arrived and parked their cars on a hastily created dirt parking lot in spaces designated with chalk. They strolled among the trucks purchasing fruit, vegetables, and flowers.
