Our group of six adults had a lot of fun going back in time when we rode the St Helena boat down the canal. We had a little trouble finding the departure site, but they held the boat a few minutes while we bought our tickets. Our guide was a young teen who said he was in training. He was excellent & humorous & answered the riders' many questions very well. We teased him a bit & he teased right back. Our boat was towed by a team of horses for a very smooth glide down the canal. We went a mile to the old lock site & the boat 'steerers' turned us around in the large pond area using long poles. It was slow & casual & very pleasant viewing beautiful gardens & wooded areas along the canal tow path. My brother-in-law was concerned about his horse allergy, but the horses were far ahead of the boat & he had no problems. We all enjoyed our little canal journey. The history relayed to us was very interesting & thought-provoking. We were so glad we made the effort to find this little Ohio canal & take our ride back into history. Thanks to the city of Canal Fulton & the heritage society who partner to put on this nostalgic, historic experience! We really enjoyed the 30 min video in the heritage center as well. The woman in the center was so accommodating & re-showed the film to our six as we didn't have time to view it before our boat ride (we got lost!).
