The Erie Canal: Exploring New York's Great Canals; Includes Oswego, Cayuga-Seneca & Champlain Canals

The Erie Canal: Exploring New York's Great Canals; Includes Oswego, Cayuga-Seneca & Champlain Canals. The story of the 363-Erie Canal, completed in 1825, is a tale of achieving the impossible. This first water link between the Atlantic seaboard and the Great Lakes was a marvel: it opened new vistas, changed lives, and forever changed New York State and the entire Nation. Today, the Erie Canal has been rediscovered, reenergized, and declared a National Heritage Corridor. It takes boaters, bikers, and walkers back in time to a slower, more reflective era even as it connects small New York towns with the waterways of the world. Each chapter details the area's history, lodging, restaurants, culture, recreation, and shopping with an emphasis on key historic sites, museums, attractions, and parks. As in all Great Destinations guides, this book has more than 100 photographs and many detailed maps help you plan a memorable trip.
