Celebrate America's Byway along the Ohio & Erie Canalway!

The Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition is excited to welcome car enthusiasts for a day of driving along the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area, visiting different destinations along the way.

What is the Ohio & Erie Canalway America's Byway? Nationally designated by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, an America’s Byway provides a route connecting key cultural, historic, recreational and natural sites of interest within an area by way of two-lane roads.

The Ohio & Erie Canalway America’s Byway travels alongside the historic path of the Ohio & Erie Canal, the nation's first inland waterway link between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. It is not a single road, but a carefully mapped 110-mile route through four counties and 58 communities in the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area. Learn more about the byway.

What’s included in the Scenic Byway Registration Package? Participants can expect to receive a continental breakfast, refreshments, lunch, convenient rest stops, a commemorative gift, and awesome prizes and raffle opportunities all as a part of their registration package, all while learning more about the history of America’s Byway from the comfort of their own vehicle!

Stay tuned for the release of the 2024 Scenic Byway Road Rally theme!
