My wife and I had traveled to amish country Ohio for the weekend for a short getaway. We found this place in a motel brochure. We both enjoy history and thought it looke interesting. We are very glad we stopped. The village is a collection of shops and historic buildings telling the story of the once boomong Erie Canal town. Enjoy a leasurely stroll through the village and have lunch or dinner at one of the restraunts. We chose The Wharehouse Steak and Stien and it was quite good. Don't miss the canal boat ride as it was very informative and relaxing.

We had a great time going throughout the Village despite being rejected to stay at a reservation made with Mickey Nichols at Roscoe Village Suites.

Food was good. Service was very good. Entertainment was great fun. Price was very reasonable. The dinner was a perfect end to the wine trail that wedding that day.

Go back to the days of the Erie Canal. Ride on a restored canal boat pulled by a horse along a towpath. Join the restored Canal Town of Roscoe Village and stroll through yesteryear. The tours through the village are very informative. Guides are all dressed in period costume and love to share the old days with you. The shopping district is all free, but if you want a tour or a canal boat ride there is a fee.

My favorite part is Dr. Johnson's wife's herb garden. Very quaint replica of old canal town. Definitely has some good food and coffee spots. Apple Butter festival is amazing.
