Erie Tourism & Sightseeing

Erie Tourism and Sightseeing
Erie is Pennsylvania's only Great Lakes Port City and boasts a wealth of natural beauty and fascinating history. Erie is situated along picturesque Presque Isle Bay, one of the world's best-protected harbors surrounded by a 3,200-acre peninsula, Presque Isle State Park. Enjoy Presque Isle State Park with 7 miles of sandy beaches, trails and plenty of outdoor recreation including swimming, fishing, boating, skiing, birding and the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, an educational fun way to learn the history of the Park. Travel downtown for Broadway shows, riveting theatrical performances, philharmonic delights, and comedy club entertainment. Explore acres of vineyards at local wineries. Enjoy dinner and a show at unique interactive dinner theaters. Root for our professional sports teams: Erie Seawolves AA baseball, Erie Otters OHL hockey or the Erie Bayhawks NBA D-League basketball. Splash around at Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park or experience thrill rides and slides at Waldameer Park and Water World. Put your skies on for downhill or cross-country outdoor fun. Find everything you expect from a big metropolitan city with the affordability and charm of a smaller town.
