Arriving at Canal Fulton it was great to stop at the Canalway center and learn about the importance of the canals in the 19th century.

A very relaxing place for an after dinner walk. Plenty of parking. I feel very safe here and the path is easier to walk on than the road

They have a movie that gives a nice history of town and canal system. You can also get tickets for the canal boat. Great map of system, and historical photos. Bonus- water fountains inside and out, as well as bathrooms.

From the geocaching on the trails to the reading and learning that my ancestors were "Canawlers", my family and I had a great adventure here. I will put this on my return visit list for my RV adventures as well.
