Great seashore with sandy beaches, scenic bluffs and at times, waves for surfing. Enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, historic towns and villages while you soak in it's maritime heritage. Cedar Point is one of the top amusement parks in the nation.

its a great place near to pittsburgh. you can drive down to lake erie, spend all day and can be back in the evening. it is the nearest sea shore near pittsburgh. though it is a lake, it is so huge that you will not realize that it is a lake. it just looks like sea beach.
