Mule-drawn canal boat experience in Ohio: Travel back in time to the days when the smoothest way to go long distances was aboard boats towed by mules along man-made waterways. Board an authentic, mule-drawn canal boat named The Volunteer to experience what life was like during the canal era. Historical re-enactors operate the boat, staying in character on the first half of the 45-minute cruise to spin tales of life in mid-1800s Ohio. Then tour an authentic, 1800s saw and gristmill where interpreters demonstrate how water power was used to saw wood and grind flour.
