The Erie Canal ceremoniously opened in 1825, and at that time was considered one of the greatest engineering feats of the era. The canal was important in that it connected the Atlantic Ocean with the Great Lakes.

This was a unique trip with highlights that include wonderful educational attractions, flat terrain, moderate daily distances and much of the riding on canal paths separate from road traffic
