Upstate, NY has incredibly fascinating history. There’s so much to learn about how important our little corner of the State is. We can recognize this by looking around!
One of the coolest things that I think we take for granted up here is the fact that The Erie Canal ran right through our little city! Seriously, how cool is that.
Where we have all of our festivals now in Clinton Square is where boats used to come through! We literally party on the Erie Canal these days!
So imagine my excitement when I learned about the Canal Splash August 9th from 9am-6pm. Canal Splash is a guided cruise along the Canal Systems in Upstate NY from Syracuse to Seneca Falls. It leaves from one of my favorite locks (yes, I have a favorite), Lock 24 in Baldwinsville and will cruise down to Cross Lake, then on towards the Montezuma Wildlife Refuge, and finish at the double locks in Seneca Falls. How is that for living history!?
You even get to ride on the famous Emita II, which is a double decker ferry tour boat..it’s really something!
Tickets for this event are a bit pricey, they’re $110 for nonmembers and $99 for members…however, included is a continental breakfast and lunch buffet, afternoon snack…so basically, lots of food! You will also return to Syracuse by vehicle and that transportation is provided. Sidenote: A portion of your ticket price is tax deductible.
Tip: Space is limited, purchase your ticket here
