Attractions in Syracuse

The Erie Canal Museum (ECM) is a private, nonprofit corporation founded in 1962. It is housed in the 1850 Weighlock Building, where canal boats were weighed during the days when they traveled through the center of Syracuse on the Erie Canal. A gallery full of participatory exhibits gives visitors a look at canal life and promotes hands-on- learning. The Museum has three special exhibits each year that draw on its nationally renowned artifact collection and historical research. Museum tours and specialty programs for all age groups are developed to entertain as well as educate. A variety of school programs are also offered by the Museum.

Syracuse Leisure Travelers 

 Syracuse Discover heart of New York

Syracuse. It’s the center – and the crossroads – and the heart of New York. Where from four points on a compass, the state’s main thoroughfares intersect – a modern day testament to the canal that represented the dawn of interstate transportation and commerce some two hundred years before.
But Syracuse is more than the geographical center. It’s the cultural and historical crossroads of New York State as well. Nestled among the rolling green drumlins is a safe, welcoming community of diverse, professional and hardworking people who create a kind of cultural vibrancy found in few other places.

So easily accessible, Syracuse offers the leisure traveler an abundance of attractions, activities and historical perspectives comparable to a much larger city. All framed within the dramatic panorama and seasonal colors of earth and sky, which can only be found in Central New York.
