My favorite spot along the shores of Lake Erie is Presque Isle State Park. It has so many different attractions for our entire family. There is hiking, birdwatching, swimming, boating among many other endless attractions. I enjoyed being able to rent a boat upon arrival at the park, when our family decided to visit. It is said to have Pennsylvania's only surfing available. While there, in the city of Erie, consider seeing The Flagship Niagara historic site, which features a replica of the historic craft.

Attraction | "Waldameer Park and Water World"

You may contact them at 814-838-3591. Some advice to be known is that the amusement park has free parking and free admission, although at the water world everyone pays including babies. The babies need to be watched as not to soil the water by the personnel. There are prices for rides for the kids up to 42". They pay $8.25 to use either the amusement park or water world,or $10.50 if going to both locations. For everyone over 42" tall: Water World $11.50, Waldameer $13.50 or $16.00 for both parks.
