Presque Isle State Park
Presque Isle State Park is Pennsylvania’s most visited state park — 4 million visitors per year — and for good reason. The Park offers something amazing for everyone.
The 13 mile paved trail around the Park offers spectacular scenery for running, walking, rollerblading, skateboarding, and cycling.
Jet skis, motor boats, pontoons and more can be rented from Port Erie Sports along the Erie bayfront (not inside Presque Isle State Park).
The eleven sandy beaches will make you wonder why you haven’t visited before. Come and see why Presque Isle’s beaches were voted the best freshwater beaches in the country by USA Today. Prepare to picnic if you spend a day at Presque Isle. Picnic tables and metal grills are placed abundantly throughout the park. Although concession stands are open in the summer months, a simple picnic or grilling hot dogs and burgers at the beach is extremely satisfying.
Bird watching is very popular and the variety of birds is quite unique due to the location of Presque Isle on the Atlantic Flyaway. Walking trails abound within and around the Park.
Do you love scenic drives?
For the less active, a drive around the Park is gorgeous any time of year with the bay on one side of the Park and Lake Erie on the other side. Try a drive at dusk or dawn to spot wildlife as they come out to hunt for food. Horseshoe Pond is home to a number of houseboats and very picturesque for photographers. History buffs can enjoy learning about the importance of the Park in the Battle of 1812. The Perry Monument, Misery Bay, and the Flagship Niagara are all part of the story.
Don’t miss the sunsets!
Don’t miss the beautiful sunsets. Stay and play on the beach while watching the sun set into the lake. Bring your camera!
Erie’s Presque Isle Downs & Casino
You can find slot machines and table games, live music and night life, buffets and fancy restaurants, as you would expect at a casino. But in the summer you can also enjoy the horse racing on the outdoor track, a family-friendly event. Many children and teens enjoy seeing the horses and even picking a favorite horse to win.
Erie’s Waldameer Amusement Park & Water World
Waldameer is both an amusement park and water park. Admission to the amusement park is free. If you are a parent who does not plan to ride, you can enjoy being in the amusement park with your kids without having to pay. New attractions are added each year.
