This is a must visit when in Erie. Historic place in US history. Beach front is a great place to spend the day. Boat docks available. Bike/hike trail is well maintained and along the waterfront in many places. Family friendly place and well maintained.

Nice walking with many sidewalk trails for even walking. The rangers at the station are very helpful. The views from the top of the two light houses are great! Try to catch a sunset if you can.

I was only at Beach 11, but I heard the lifeguard tell someone else that 11 has the least waves, and it is pretty flat to get in the water. It worked for me as I was using a cane. There were many small children there and... More
