Port Colborne and the Welland Canal

Although most tourists don’t travel to see the rest of Greater Niagara surrounding Niagara Falls, those that do get to enjoy a really interesting place to visit. How about a walk along side the canal where the massive “lakers” (the ships of the Great Lakes) enter and leave the canal that takes them around Niagara Falls.

If you have your auto with you while visiting Niagara Falls, be sure to take a drive to Port Colborne, situated on Lake Erie. A wonderful community and the beginning, or end, of the Welland Canal. Thousands of giant laker ships use the Welland Canal to get around Niagara Falls on their travels throughout the Great Lakes. In fact, while you’re at it, you should visit the Locks of the Welland Canal.
