A beautiful spot with interesting history! You can take the canal towpath downtown and then out of town past little lagoons, thick woods, canal locks, and interpretive signage. Some wildlife sightings and views of the river and historic architecture. Looking forward to visiting again!

Great place for a short walk or long bike ride. Bring bug spray unless you are staying on the path right in town. It is not well mowed and better safe than sorry when it comes to bugs.

I really enjoyed seeing the canals here. When the weather is nice you can do long walks along the canals. It's a unique peek into an important period of US history. There's lots of shops and stuff around the canals you can also explore. Definitely...More

I don't recall there being any bike rentals around. I wasn't really looking for them though. The area isn't that big where you might need a bike to get around. Well my opinion. We walked to see everything.
