Families can swim off the sandy beach in Lake Erie, play tennis or soccer, attend an art or music class, shop in the charming downtown or ride a bike or golf cart through town. There are hundreds of charming cottages available to rent at Lakeside Chautauqua in various sizes, along with little inns and hotels, too.
