I don't know of any hotels that will serve an 18 year old. I know for sure the upper end resorts and usual chains will not. You can check with the locally owned motels, like The Maples Motel, etc.

Romance wise.... any meal on the water is a good bet. Bay Harbor Inn is very nice. Chez Francois in the nearby town of Vermilion is $$$$$, but very very good french food. You could also go for a walk on any of the local beaches. Keep in mind that depending on the time of year that you go, there will likely be major bug populations on the beaches, though.

Hi Chris,

The Best Western has a minimum of 18 years. I've stayed here before and it is quite nice. I think you both would be very pleased.

A bed & breakfast might not be a bad idea if you're looking for a more romantic getaway. Wagner's 1844 Inn (230 E. Washington St.) and Simpson-Flint House (234 E. Washington St.) in downtown Sandusky are nice places close to Cedar Point, the waterfront, and beautiful Washington Park. Zinc Brasserie is a unique French restaurant with a cozy atmosphere (located in downtown Sandusky), Marconi's (in Huron), Baci (located at the Comfort Inn in Sandusky) and Sortino's Italian Restaurant (in Sandusky) are great options for Italian food. The Angry Bull is a good option for steak and seafood. You could visit the Lake Erie islands, tour the Marblehead Lighthouse, or take a romantic sunset cruise. Check out the welcome center for the Sandusky area at www.SHORESandISLANDS.com for more information.

I would take a romantic ride over to put in bay on the Miller Ferry, rent a golf cart and ride around the island. Maybe even stay over night. :)

Yeah, heading over to Put-In-Bay or Kelleys Island on the ferry is a good idea. Kelleys Island does have a nice beach on it too (though it may involve a bit of walking).
