We recently celebrated President's Day, giving us the opportunity to look back on the intricate and fascinating history of our nation and more specifically, the men who helped shape it. In that spirit, why not take a little tour of history for yourself the next weekend you are looking to get away.

Old Fort Niagara is located in Youngstown and a very manageable drive for the weekend or even just a day away. The prices are also very manageable, with tickets ranging from $12 for adults and free for children younger than 5 years old and many discounts also available.

Built in the 18th century, the fort sits on the water, providing phenomenal views for the photo-crazed or the weekend roamer simply seeking something beautiful.

In addition to the scenery, the fort provides exhibits and living history programs, which makes the trip fun and engaging.

Beginning in March with tickets available now, the fort also holds tavern nights which offer food, beverages, live music and historical vignettes in an 18th century tavern. Tickets are $30 per person and must be purchased in advance by calling 745-7611.

The Tavern Nights provide and evening of fun and as summer approaches, the fort offers even more events.
