Paddle the waterways or bike a trail to the beautiful, historical Lorrain Bridge. Along the byway, you can also experience local museums such as the Zigler Art Museum, the W.H. Tupper General Merchandise Museum or the Welsh Museum. At these locations you’ll find everything from fine works of American and European art and unique pieces by local artists to information and artifacts about the history of the small towns and communities along the byway.
