It may be overrated for locals but visitors will appreciate overlooking our bay. Call ahead because one day a week it is typically free, otherwise it is about $3.

The tower is a great way to see all over Lake Erie and the City. The last time we were there you couldn't get up the steps they had them closed off and the elevator is the only way to get up it. They do have some food there to purchase and I believe on certain Sundays its free to go up the tower.

It gives you a good perspective of surrounding area, both toward city and lake. It includes various history info.

We like to go up here at least once each summer. We have lunch at one of the restaurants nearby and then walk around to enjoy the view. The views from the top of the tower are wonderful. A relaxing way to spend a day. There is a water taxi right there, also, that you can take over to Presque Isle.
