CanalTour.org – Follow The Signs!
The I&M Canal National Heritage Area encompasses 862 square miles that include 5 counties, 60 communities and hundreds of historical sites. On your own, it would be easy to miss the fascinating stories behind some of our landmarks.
So, as a convenient way to aid your exploration, we’ve created over 200 signs that provide details on the specific site where the sign is located. Even more, each of these recognizable blue and yellow signs has a QR Code, which, once scanned on your smartphone, links you to a webpage that provides additional information, such as stories, historical fun facts, nearby attractions and restaurants.
We’ve collected all these webpages in our CanalTour.org site.
