What Bert Has To Say About Utica-Rome Metro Area

Utica and Rome, small towns separated by 16 miles, trace their origins to the Erie Canal. Both towns are hardworking and industrial in nature and are fairly lacking in small town charm. However, nearby areas offer plentiful snow and winter sports, and the Adirondacks are a short distance to the northeast. Cooperstown, one of the most likeable small towns in the northeast and home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame, is on the shore of Lake Otsego (40 miles southeast).
