Lovely beach and park.

Very nice park and walk area on Lake Erie. Has a nice children's playground. Was there during te week around dinner time. Fairly quiet. Lots of folks fishing along the rocks.

This place is still special, all the bikes and flowers tied to the poles are spectacular. The trees and the beaches are clean and well kept and the people are so nice.

Crystal Beach is a beautiful beach, with shallow, calm and clear water and nice sand. The water this July was cold due to the colder weather in June but usually is nice and warm. It gets busy on weekends but lots of space to find a spot.

Beach is kept clean and family friendly. Only complaint is the bathrooms really need to be revamped and larger really sad looking almost like an outhouse. Would be nice to have a little more variety on the beach as far as food.

Had a great time. Fireworks on both sides of the border were phoenominal. Almost looked like the Canoe club and Yacht club were competing. . Canoe club won I think.

There was nickle day (each ride a nickle), Queeno Day (free ride with a Queeno soda bottle cap). I use to get the bottle caps from the hot dog stands on Sheridan Road (pre... More

We've been to this restaurant a few times now. Food and service has always been great. Menu has many great choices to choose from. Most of their food is made from scratch. French onion soup is best I've ever had. I would recommend this place for a good reasonably priced meal.
