Buffalo’s greatest asset is its waterways. With the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, Buffalo became the “Gateway to the West” – connecting the Great Lakes to New York City. The city increased in population and wealth, evident today in the city’s architecture, civic institutions, and parks. Join us for a boat tour to see the waterfront infrastructure that built Buffalo. The tour will feature architectural landmarks lining the Buffalo River, Canalside, and the Harbor. Highlights will include private tours insidethe historic concrete grain elevators that helped launch the Modern Movement, the National Historic Landmark steamer Columbia, and the redevelopment of Canalside, the terminus of the Erie Canal.

Dress code: Comfortable clothes and shoes.
