    The Erie Canal was dug from 1817 to 1825 by hand, connecting the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. Lockport has locks 34 and 35, which you will travel through on the boat ride. You can easily see and feel the boat rising and falling while you are in the locks! The surrounding area is pleasant to look at and they provide you with information about the locks and their history the entire way.

    After you go through the locks, they take you under the lift bridges, which lift vertically so that the boats can pass underneath instead of drawbridges, which are what I always imagine! You will go to the marina before turing around and docking back at the gift center. It lasts over an hour and is an interesting and unique tour!

    Rides cost $15 for adults and $8.50 for children. It's best to call and make a reservation before you go.

    Although it is called Lockport Cave, it is not really a cave at all; it is the inside of an old hydraulic system that once powered local factories. The tour begins outside the cave where you can get a good look at the locks and the other abandoned hydraulic pipes before taking you inside. From there, much of the tour is done on foot walking through the cave, but the final part of the tour is done by boat. On the boat you can see the holes dug from the surface and stalactites.

    The tour is $10 for adults and $6 for children. AAA members can receive a discount.
