200 Years on the Erie Canal

The 360-mile long Erie Canal connects Albany on the Hudson River, with Buffalo, and during the 19th Century, served as the primary means of moving goods across the state. As we celebrate the bicentennial of Erie Canal this year, Albany organizations offer unique programs, exhibits, and events that examine the enduring legacy of this one-of-kind waterway. Hike or bike the paths that extend along the canal, paddle through locks, or cruise the canal aboard one of our sightseeing cruises. Find your adventure with our Erie Canal Itinerary.
