Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

With Halloween right around the corner, people flock to the nearest haunted houses, hayrides, fields and more to get a little spooky. This year, stray from these attractions and check out this unique and spooky Halloween attraction just three hours west of Utica, New York.

 

The Lockport Cave & Underground Boat Ride in New York offers an exciting guided tour through America’s past. During the tour, explore Erie Canal Locks constructed in 1842 and glide through a tunnel past stalactites, flow stone and other geological formations and artifacts left behind by the men who built the tunnel.

 

This experience has been around for more than 40 years and was even featured on Ghost Hunters. The cave is 55 degrees year-round so dress accordingly. Your tour guide will lead you by lantern light along the dark Erie Canals while telling you folklore and hair-raising stories before you explore the forbidden tunnels and caves under Lockport.

 

Tours are 80 minutes, rain or shine, so be prepared for weather. Arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time and be ready to explore the creepy caves, tunnels and history around you.
