Best part of the City has always been the lighthouse. The boat ride out was informative and fun. Beautiful day to be on the lake. Ed the boat captain. Very knowledgeable about the history of the area.

Kid friendly and we had the best guide today! He was so good with the kids, asked great questions AND gave all the kids a chance to answer! Plus he’d been to all the maritime museums we’d been to and Battleship Cove so that was fun for the kids also. It’s a small but really well done piece of history! Our guide also recommended a fun kid friendly restaurant 🥰 we really enjoyed Rudy’s so thank you Mr. Guide
Very cool museum that is a must-see for any local history fans. But, since they've opened the lighthouse tour, this has moved way up on my "must see" for everyone. You can take a short boat ride out to the lighthouse for a really unique tour and a vantage point of Oswego you won't otherwise get.
