The leisure driving and boating route spans five distinct areas along the coastline: the Erie Bayfront and Presque Isle in Pennsylvania, the Western NY Lake Erie metropolitan hub of Buffalo-Niagara Falls, the expansive Lake Ontario shoreline and its centerpiece at Rochester, the recreation-rich Eastern Lake Ontario waterfront, and the international 1000 Islands-St. Lawrence Seaway.
 
Feature articles in the free, 64-page, glossy magazine highlight 30 historic lighthouses; War of 1812 battle sites; cultural heritage attractions and quilt shows, classes, and exhibits; events and festivals; and volkswalking, biking, kayaking and 75 geocaching opportunities Trailwide.
 
The 2013 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Travel Magazine includes Wayne County highlights, including Old Sodus Lighthouse and the historic War of 1812 battles fought at Pultneyville and Sodus Point plus the modern-day Brantling Bluegrass Festival at the Brantling Ski slopes in Sodus.
