Lackawaxen offers lots of fun things to do in the area especially if you love history and the outdoors. Built In 1848, the Roebling Aqueduct Suspension Bridge (connects Minisink Ford, NY and Lackawaxen), was as an aqueduct to carry canal boats over the Delaware River. Today, the bridge stands as a landmark for one of the oldest suspension bridges in the entire country. John Roebling designed the wire cable suspension structure, which he later used as the prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge. You can either drive or walk across the historic bridge and enjoy the gorgeous view of the Delaware River.
