I love Presque Isle....I am always returning home revived and relaxed as though I have been away for a week ...when in reality I have just been away for one marvelous day. Do check out Wegman's and Mason's market.

This little strip of land offers an amazing variety of things to do - water, hiking, fishing, laying on the beach. I saw lots of walkers, runners, strollers when I was there one brisk winter afternoon. I hope to return when the weather is warmer. Definitely a place for everyone and families of all sizes.

We decided to go on the sunset tour and it was BEAUTIFUL! Being out on the lake with a tour guide was an amazing experience, not to mention the mouth dropping sunset! Everything about Lake Erie is AMAZING! Pure AWESOMENESS of GOD!

We were here twice: first time in August '14, then again for our school's fall break in October. Living in Central PA, we've missed this gem for years. Full-beach feel for the kids. We love the beach, hate Jersey. This is our new alternative. There are several beaches and it can be quite fun when the winds are blowing, creating... More

It is somewhat remote but definitely worth. There were mounds of ice on top of the sand that provided tremendous views of the wintery lake

Very nice ride along Lake Erie with beaches & bike trails. We saw the Presque Isle lighthouse and watched ice fishing on the frozen Lake Erie.

It doesn't matter between in the woods or in the water,I'm always trying to get down to Presque Isle. With its lush forest and sandy beaches it truly one of the most beautiful spots you'll e ever find. I have enjoyed years of swimming,fishing,and deer hunting. On a good day you can even spot our old time tall ship the... More

Had fun walking on the bay ice. And the ice dunes on the lake side were amazing. Looking forward to the summer.

Awesome to see the lake frozen. When you get close to the lake, it's weird not to hear any waves. For your safety, stay away from the ice dunes. They can be extremely dangerous. We saw the Joe Root's Frostbite Open. Funny to see them golfing on the frozen Presque Isle Bay. Pretty neat to see the lake freighters in... More
