Erie Canal - Finger Lakes Region - Day Trip?

Jump to last reply

We're heading to the Finger Lakes on Saturday May 4 2013 and will be staying through May 16. We're staying in Ithaca, Letchworth State Park, and Canandaigua. Is it possible to do a day trip to one of the sections of the Erie Canal around in the region? We'd like to walk along a section or take a boat tour (not operate the boat ourselves). It would be interesting to see some of the locks also. We're not bringing bikes, but would be open to renting them if there's a good spot. We're not great riders anymore but a nice flat section would be great. I poked around on the Forum and didn't see much on this topic (more about renting a barge you operate yourself).

Thanks for any tips.
