Destination Oneonta

Table Rock, a prominent rock formation, draws hikers, mountain bikers and sightseers for stunning views of the exposed cliffs that gave the city its name (Oneonta is believed to mean "open rocks" in Mohawk). In the spring, sports fans flock to Damaschke Field, a historic baseball field just steps from downtown that once hosted legends like Babe Ruth and Rogers Hornsby, to catch a minor league game.

Speaking of downtown: this tight-knit community has one of the very best. Locally-owned bookstores, coffee shops and tattoo parlors line Oneonta’s Main Street, and a patchwork of art spaces spill into the connecting neighborhoods. And homes in Oneonta come with a small-town price tag; the median listing here hovers around $275,000.
