The northern shoreline of Ohio is known as one of the most idyllic waterfronts in America. Sandy beaches paired with the warmest waters of the Great Lakes and picturesque towns dotted along the coastline make for an incredible vacation. Follow the shore east towards Pennsylvania and you will stumble upon the charming village Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio’s first summer resort. With award-winning restaurants, great annual events, and peaceful lakefront accommodations, this classic destination is not one to miss.
On the other side of Cleaveland, about halfway to Toledo lies the Central Shores made up of the Historic town of Sandusky, the Lake Erie Islands, and the famed Cedar Point. Often regarded as the number #1 family-friendly destination in the midwest, one week may not be enough. Ride the roller coasters at Cedar Point Amusement Park, take a ferry to the quaint island villages, enjoy a lakefront picnic, and boat around on the open water. With gorgeous waterfront retreats in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Sandusky, Port Clinton, and even on the secluded South Bass Island you can get out and enjoy Lake Erie with ease.
