We were passing by Buffalo and stop here mostly to stretch a little during our trip to NY State.
It proved to be very interesting, seeing the canal with the ships and the submarine.
There is a walkway all around , the breeze of the water was very welcomed.There is a food stand.
But the amazing thing is the almost 50 foot drop in the water through what they call the "5 locks" That is the only way the ships can navigate the canal .
It is an outstanding work, specially because it was finished in 1825.
Gone are the days when the barges were pulled by horses by the side of the river...
You can also tour by boat.
It is an attraction that we'll certainly visit again in the future, maybe by boat
