The Lockport cave an underground tour was a fun stop and worth the trip from Niagara Falls. As others have mentioned, the caves are man-made, so don't go on the tour expecting to visit a natural cave. Despite that, it was interesting to learn about the history of Lockport and the Erie Canal while touring the remains of one of the first hydro-mechanical factory ever built.
The tour started by taking us around locks 34 and 35 of the Erie Canal. After that we walked along the canal and into the cave. We walked a good distance and then boarded a boat with trawling motors, which we took to the back of the cave. The tour was nice, our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area, and it was good to spend some time in a cool cave on a hot day.
The tour does require some walking and will require going up and down some steps. Most people should be able to do it without issue, but it is not a wheelchair accessible tour.
Other than the cave tour there isn't very much to see in Lockport. However, I'm glad we made the trip to see the canal and learn about the history of Lockport.
