Recreation in Erie County

Millions of visitors come to Erie County each year to enjoy beautiful Lake Erie, its parks and beaches, and such water sports as boating, fishing, swimming and skiing.

Erie MetroParks offers its visitors canoeing, picnic facilities, jogging trails and nature preserves. Nature lovers can enjoy the wetlands and marshes and view the extensive variety of birds, from eagles to egrets, that make Erie County their habitat.

Our citizens and visitors also enjoy golf at one of the many courses in the County, museums, historical tours and numerous other attractions including the ever famous Cedar Point Amusement Park (external site) that has been providing fun, thrills and excitement to its visitors for over a century (1870).
