Boating In The Tonawanda's

The Tonawanda’s are at the western terminus of the Erie Canal.  This is a unique destination since the Canal divides two cities, and you will find each side of the Canal under the jurisdiction of either North Tonawanda on the North wall which puts you in Niagara County or in Tonawanda on the south side in Erie County.  You will find bath and shower houses on both sides of the canal under the direction of Harbormasters from either city. 

The Tonawanda’s probably offers the greatest docking opportunities on the entire Canal System, there’s lots of room, lots of electric, lots of activities

You will find a stop at either Tonawanda a unique experience, especially if you have been traveling west on the Canal and you’re familiar with the quiet villages and communities along the western section of the Canal.  On a summer weekend just find yourself a spot on the wall and enjoy the almost endless parade of boats cruising up and down the Canal.

Amenities are close by, with several restaurants Canal side and many others a short distance from the wall.  You will also find stores to re-provision within a short walk or bike ride.  If you do find yourself in the Tonawanda’s rent a car and take the short ride to Niagara Falls or downtown Buffalo

In July the Tonawanda’s host one of the largest festivals along the Canal.  Canal Fest is held the 3rd week in July and don’t forget their weekly canal side concerts which attract a crowd every week.  This year’s event will be held from July 19th – July 26th 20th 2015
