    Nicknamed the "Eighth Wonder of the World" in , the Erie Canal () is a man-made waterway built to connect the Hudson River in the eastern part of New York to Lake Erie in the west.   You need to decide if you're going to go through Syracuse or around it to the north. Going through is ok using the route in the guide book. The advantages are that you can use the Old Erie Canal on the east, and the best canal museum is downtown.
