Summer is approaching and many are still planning their summer. There are plenty of fun activities to do that aren’t too far away from Erie that some should consider taking part in this summer.
PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates, is a great day trip to take with the family. Voted one of the best Major League ballparks, PNC Park is a can’t miss. Downtown Pittsburgh is right across the bridge, so feel free to walk over after the game. Catch a day of baseball with the family while enjoying the sights and sounds of the city.
Niagara Falls, New York, is another great day trip to take on less than a tank of gas. Go see Niagara Falls, and if you have your passport, head on over to the Canadian side. Ride the Maid of the Mist to get an up close view of the breathtaking falls. Walking along Niagara Falls along with eating some great food, can’t be beat. After the falls, head to The Silo in Lewistown for some delicious hamburgers and fries.
Head less than two hours west to spend a great day in Cleveland. This city on Lake Erie offers a little something for everyone in your family. Catch an Indians game, check out some music history at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, or plan a visit to the Great Lakes Science Center. Of course, there are many different restaurants to enjoy a meal before heading home.
Spend your day at Waldameer as well! This small amusement park located right here in Erie, Pennsylvania, is a true gem. A family fun park for all, Waldameer is a must visit this summer. The recent additions to Water World will keep you cool. The Ravine Flyer, a roller coaster with an 85-foot drop, is the top attraction. This ride is only one of the thrillers that will be experienced at Waldameer throughout the summer.
Overall, there are many places to be explored this summer. Cities, such as Pittsburgh, Niagara Falls, and Cleveland are nice places to visit if one is willing to make the short drive. No matter what you chose to do this summer, you will be satisfied!
