A great ride along the Canal is worth the time. Very quiet and pleasant. Also the impressive Lift Bridges along the way, and to watch the Lake Frieghters pass by, with little to no noise, you dont even know they are there.

Sit beside the southern terminus of the Welland Canal and watch the lakers and saltys go by and the engineering marvel of the lift bridge. On a warm summer day the cooling breeze off the Canal is really nice.

A walk along the Port Colborne promenade offers views of the Clarence Street lift bridge over the Welland Canal. Ships passing under the bridge come almost close enough to touch. There are benches to rest the weary traveller or provide a place for quiet contemplation....More
