Beautiful coastline, sandy beaches, great facilities Jul 19, 2009
Presque Isle State Park in Erie is a great place to spend a day, weekend, or longer vacation. This 3,200 acre peninsula extends into Lake Erie from the town of Erie, PA.

It offers many activities, with 14 miles of trails for roller blading or biking, nine different beach areas, a marine and boat rental center, bike rental facilities, scuba diving areas, and winter sports such as cross country skiing & snowshoeing trails with equipment available for rent, and ice fishing.

It is also one of the best bird watching locations in the US, with a number of endangered and rare species.

Many organizations host events at the Park throughout the year, such as the Erie Runners Club races, scenic boat tours, public educational programs, and various kite-flying events.

Erie is rather dreary, but so is most of the Northeast! Presque Isle is gorgeous. (have to admit it was dreary the day we were there, as you can see in the pics)

dang - grew up in PA (Lancaster) but never heard of this place. Struck a chord because I'm familiar w/Presque Island, ME.

Have to confess I've never been to Erie --- probably prejudiced since my only notion is a childhood saying ---> "drearie Erie, the mistake on the lake"... :^(
