Like a day at the beach.
Lake Erie is a natural wonder and a tremendous resource, although this piece focuses on the great lakes merits as a tourists destination. For mid-western beach lovers Presque Isle State Park is a must.
Empty beaches on weekdays
"DO NOT CLIMB BREAKERS"
I'm doing everyone "tiny" in these photos. In these photos the peninsula is facing the town of Erie, PA.
Canada was not so evident in the background while visiting the park, however these static photos reveal a friendly wave from our northern neighbor.
Presque Isle is a great beach fix and one more reason why Pennsylvania is the worlds best kept secret (after we get rid of Harrisburg)
There is no camping in the park, however there is Sarah's Campground just outside the park entrance (and next to a roller coaster and amusement park) and a KOA about fifteen minutes out, but for the money I would suggest looking into hotels in town.
With the range of activities available, from cycling to boating, to good ol' fashioned power-relaxing, Presque Isle belongs on the "to do" list.
