15 Miles On The Erie Canal

We didn't actually go that far but we did take a canal boat ride on the Erie Canal. We got on the boat in Pittsford, NY and went to Lock 32. Going through a lock is a very interesting experience. Millions of gallons of water are released and the boat rises more than 25 feet. We then had dinner at a restaurant along the canal. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the view and the cool weather.

I grew up very near to the Erie Canal. I have fished in it, I've played in the water and never once have I taken a boat ride though the canal and locks. The locks were another thing we often stopped to watch the boats go through, I noticed on the Thruway they have opened a new rest area right next to the Canal and locks so you can pull off the highway, park and walk up to the canal and watch.
