We were traveling through but I wanted to see Lake Erie. This is an easy stop on and off the interstate with a cute lighthouse and small little pier to walk on. Locals were friendly. The waves were smacking onto the pier. I don’t think...More

Very clean area. People friendly. Not much of a walk though. We were hoping for something to occupy a couple of hours. It was interesting seeing one of the Great Lakes for the first time.
