The Lake Erie Shores and Islands offer so many different atmospheres and things to do in each town that it makes for an ideal family vacation destination for all generations. Put-In-Bay and Kelleys Island can be found in the middle of Lake Erie and offer families plenty of opportunities for golf cart rides, ferry boats, swimming in the lake and even underground caves! The peninsula towns of Lakeside Marblehead and Port Clinton offer water parks, a drive-thru animal safari park, mini-golf and loads of local family restaurants where visitors can try the local perch and walleye. Sandusky and Cedar Point Amusement Park are destinations of their own, but are conveniently located on Lake Erie, too. If you're seeking roller coaster thrills, a visit to Cedar Point is must - it known as the Roller Coaster Capital of the World, after all! Cedar Point Amusement Park is about 30 minutes or less from nearly all of these Lake Erie destinations.
