Great beaches, many to choose from,clean rest areas and changing rooms. Get there early, parking filled up quickly.
loads of free parking (8 miles) with sandy beaches. Ride a bike, walk your dog (or you) rollar blade, stroll, etc. thru 8 miles of pristine area with no commercial intrusion. More people visit the Peninsula (3 million) than do Yellowstone Park. well worth the visit.

We stayed at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel, so it was very close to the hotel which was nice & conveinant. The beach was awesome!! There are many different places to... More

It is worth the time to visit. Sad part is the State regulations, no beach ball, rafts, etc. No alcohol at all. Very limited distance allowed from shore at guarded beaches. Very nice sunsets, said be in top 10 of world. Water is clean to swim in, unlike vicious rumors.
It would be difficult to find a sunset more beautiful than in Erie, Pa. The sunrises are very nice as well. Presque Isle is the jewel of Erie especially in the summer but plenty to enjoy year round. If you are in the Erie area it is a must see.
7 miles of sandy beaches rich in fauna and flora with activities for everyone. If not basking in the sun or playing in the waves the great bike paths and fishing opportunities are 5 star.
