If you ever need to have fun for a full day, you have to visit the Harbor Front. Bring the entire family and a picnic basket and blanket. From the Naval ships, the light tower and the rediscovered original sight of the Erie Canal, you...More

The three ships are awesome to see!! To be able to see how our sailors lived out on sea is something else. You don’t realize how truly big the ships are until you get on them. Very educational as well.

the tour takes you through the boiler room as well as the engine room...between the three vessels you get to see the entire ships including the submarine USS Croaker...which is very tight inside...watch your head !!!
