Canalside Tours

Canalside Winter Tours

    • Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 PM

    • Just $5 per person

    • 45 minute tours that start on the Lloyd Street Bridge

    • Discover how  Canawlers survived the winter by living on their ice bound boats

    • Learn about Canalside’s facilities and group activities

What happened to the people who lived off the Erie Canal when the canal froze over each winter? Find out on our new tour–“Frozen in Time”. Experience how some canawlers survived winter by living aboard their cramped boats while under age ‘urchins’ sought refuge in local poor houses and prisons.

This is a humorous history tour which means that it may not be for everybody. Our well researched historical content is presented in a light hearted fashion with some silliness and jokes along the way. If you are looking for a well organized politically correct tour featuring ‘just the facts’, then this is not the tour for you. If you can laugh at yourself and enjoy a little ethnic humor, then you might find our presentation worth while.

Just $5 per person cash, no deposit is necessary, but you’ll need to make a reservation using the form below.
