The canals are awesome. I did about 1/2 the Erie and the entire Champlain and Oswego canals in 2000. It's a very relaxing and yet satisfying trip. Just enough "danger" to keep you awake and not enough to get you worried. Piloting is exacting but simple. Boat handling is demanding but forgiving and repetitive. Towns are all charming and folks are just great. I have to admit the Canadian canals are more quaint but ours are loved just as much. (judged by the gardens and paint work) One summer is just too short to enjoy them all.
