Known along the Seaway Trail as "The Port City," Oswego is acclaimed around the region and beyond for its gorgeous Lake Ontario sunsets, well-preserved historic sites & museums and, of course, lake effect snow !  




Two of its most notable attractions, next to the lake’s striking natural beauty and harbor lighthouse, are historic Fort Ontario, which overlooks the lake, and the soon-to-be national landmark, the Safe Haven Holocaust Refugee Shelter Museum. Safe Haven was the only Official U.S. Government activity to Rescue Jewish refugees during the Second World War, for victims of the Nazi Holocaust.


Oswego also offers year-round events and festivals, charter fishing, a children’s museum, the H. Lee White Maritime Museum  which highlights the area’s rich nautical history, beautiful parks and a river walk, and has one of the most thrilling automotive raceway tracks in Upstate New York, the Oswego Speedway.


Round out your Oswego adventure with a visit to the downtown Farmer's Market every Thursday evening during the Summer months and stroll through the eclectic boutiques, specialty shops, cafes and restaurants on both sides of the Oswego River, all joined by three individual bridges, and each with its own unique and captivating perspective of the river and the city.


But wait…don’t leave before dusk and make sure to have your camera ready to capture Oswego’s always glorious sunset over Lake Ontario any time of the year!
