There is only 1 store here to spend some time before you board the cruise. They have a variety of souvenirs in it.

Immaculate but ambitiously overpriced. Huge selection of gifts/souvenirs. If you want to find something to remember your visit, you should be able to find something here

When my daughters visited, we went to the Herkimer Diamond mines and swung down here to catch the cruise on the Canal. Almost lost them in the Gems Along the Mohawk store. They didn't want to leave!

This marketplace is located directly across from exit ramp. We were expecting more shops and variety so we were disappointed. They are several local vendor displays house in the building but it is crowded. Good for a quick stop and last minute gift.

Average food with uninspired taps. Lots of room. A decent place for a crowd. Great view of the Erie Canal.

Great selection of gifts made in or associated with this area of New York State. Shares the building along the Erie Canal with the Waterfront Grill.

While visiting my brother here in central New York, we decided to take the Erie Canal cruise...and what a great decision that was. I learned things about life during the early 19th century that I never knew. Along with being a very relaxing ride, the...More
