Most of us take vacations to get away from life`s daily stresses. Sometimes even vacations can end up begin stressful. Whether you`re trying to cram in a dozen steps while keeping the family happy or rushing to return the rental car in time, you may need a vacation from your vacation. A leisurely European-style cruise on the New York<.> State Canal System offers vacationers a truly unique experience – the chance to explore upstate New York on one of the world`s most spectacular Canal Systems. Whether you want to take a three-day cruise, weeklong vacation or month-long excursion, there are endless ways to explore this spectacular historic waterway.

Cruising along the New York State Canal System can include renting a houseboat, an old-fashioned Canal packet boat or even taking a trip on a cruise ship for a week or two. Some vacationers may choose to rent a boat with captain and crew. Others become captains and skipper the boats themselves. From new Canal harbors and waterfronts, to more than 230-miles of Canalway Trails along its waterline, boaters enjoy 524-miles of adventure and surprises.

Open from May until early-November, the Canal System has public and private boat launch sites and marinas across the State. With more than 70 marinas to offer boater services and amenities such as transient and overnight dockage, utilities, fuel and pumpouts, the Canal System is well equipped with boater conveniences. Additional tie-ups, improved waterfront dockage, restrooms and picnic facilities are also available in many Canalside communities so boaters can set out on landslide adventures. Some docking is permitted at Canal System locks.
