Horse Drawn Canal Boat Rides

Step aboard the Monticello III and you’ll feel like you are actually gliding right into Ohio history! Relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the canal as it once was. Watch the hoggee lead the huge team of draft horses as they pull the canal boat gently along its way. As you listen to old canal tales from the captain describing 1800’s life on the canal, you’ll feel like you actually have stepped back in time to the 1830’s!
