Built to transport goods and people, the Erie Canal also shaped the nation, giving rise to cities and carrying new ideas to villages and towns. Ride a replica packet boat or stay in an 1800s inn. Stop and tour an outpost of the Underground Railroad or take a detour to visit the birthplace of the Women’s Rights Movement. Enjoy a one of a kind look at American history.
