Sandusky, the Roller Coaster Capital of the World, is most famous for Cedar Point, home to some of the most thrilling rides in the country, and one of the largest collections of roller coasters in the world. It's a sprawling park with amazing views of Lake Erie. There are enough rides to keep kids busy for days, plus a huge water park, live shows and entertainment. But Sandusky is also a popular destination in the winter, after Cedar Point closes for the season, as it has several large indoor water parks, including Kalahari Resort, Great Wolf Lodge and Castaway Bay. Sandusky's prime location on Lake Erie makes a beautiful place to vacation any time of year. The historic city center is worth a visit too; it has beautiful old churches, quaint shops, a Merry-Go-Round Museum the kids will love and some great parks overlooking Sandusky Bay, with views of the boats coming and going. There are island tours that leave from downtown Sandusky and head out to Lake Erie's Islands, where families can fish, kayak or rent a golf cart and explore.
