One beach is for kites and always has helpful people around. We loved the miles of well maintained walkways.

Although I was there in April, it seemed a little lackluster. Maybe it would be a lot better in the summertime.

The park here is huge, the locals always are putting on a car show or a camping event or a motorcycle show so there is always something to do if your not a nature fan, We were very impressed with the monument as well as the size of the area.

Presque isle is one of the prettiest spots to drive around in Pennsylvania. My family has lived in Erie for 12 years. Back then, our 4 children were young. I remember how excited they were that very first summer when we were trying to figure out where to go swimming. I took them into the dollar store and told them... More

A nice place to spend a weekend and relax in the beach. We went there couple of times and will go again.

A lot of walking/biking trails (Paved). The beaches are great and are as close to an ocean atmosphere as I can get within 2 hours of home. There are small museums of the flora and fauna in the area. Also some historical monuments and buildings. Just an all-round great place to spend a day in the summer.
