  Erie Canal in Lockport, NY
by waxbush2004

Take the boat ride, in Lockport, NY. It's fun to watch the locks fill up and progress along the river.
My parents are from near here, but we always went to Niagara Falls and never the canal, so I saw it as an adult.
You can access the canal system from several locations.
Check out the website:

Address: Upstate NY
Directions: Downtown Lockport and other locations throughout upstate NY.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
