Erie Canal Field Trip
Our homeschool group just took a beautiful trip along the historic Erie Canal in Grand Rapids, Ohio. What a fun experience and beautiful time of the year to visit! Check out their site for more details: Providence Metro Park Miami/Erie Canal Experience
The town of Grand Rapids, Ohio is also an adorable little area with plenty of antique shops and cafes to fill an afternoon. Our group had kids and adults of all ages, and everyone had a great time! The trip includes a guided boat ride down the Erie Canal (actually pulled by mules), experience going up and down through the original locks, and a tour of the Ludwig Mill. Of course, before you go, be sure to brush up on the famous Erie Canal song:
