Welcome to the City of Oswego, NY


Affectionately known as the Port City, Oswego features a vibrant waterfront and a burgeoning downtown with a blend of history, culture, food and drink, and community events. Approximately 45 minutes from Syracuse and less than 90 minutes from the popular Finger Lakes, Oswego is known for its active fishing season on both Lake Ontario and the Oswego River. Oswego’s roots in the waterfront are maintained to this day, with the H. Lee White Marine Museum, Fort Ontario and Safe Haven Museum connecting residents to history, and the Port of Oswego Authority consistently bustling with new activity.
