Happy New Year to everyone! With the holidays behind us, we now turn to achieving those New Year’s resolutions. Here are some C&O Canal-inspired resolution ideas for you:
Commit to offloading that pesky holiday weight by enjoying your favorite activity in your favorite place in the C&O Canal National Historical Park.
- Bike or hike all 184.5 miles of the towpath, and then reward yourself with a magnet proclaiming your achievement.
- Download our C&O Canal Explorer mobile app and use it to explore a new area of the canal.
- Stay in all a Canal Quarters lockhouse and experience life like a lock keeper.
- Visit all 9 Canal Towns and explore the quaint shops and restaurants that make each town unique.
- Visit all of the canal’s aqueducts, locks, and lockhouses.
- Enter a photograph of the canal in our photo contest.
- Set up a monthly gift so you can support the C&O Canal year-round.
- Make a gift to those who come after us: include a bequest to the C&O Canal Trust in your estate plan.
Best wishes to you for a happy and health 2020 – we’ll see you on the towpath!
