Point of Interest

Beach
“This is one of my favorite places...we have taken our kids here for over 20 years. Lake Erie is noted for having some of the most beautiful sunsets in the U.S. The harbor creates a beautiful and safe environment to enjoy Lake Erie within the breakwall. Lots of beach glass and easy access for those with mobility issues (or those with a lot of gear and children to carry to the sand!).”
