Located on beautiful Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie, Erie County is a short drive from the major metropolitan areas of Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Toronto via Interstates 79, 90 or scenic routes such as Route 5 (The Great Lakes Seaway Trail - An America’s Byway™) and Historic Pennsylvania Route 6.

A true gem of Lake Erie, the City of Erie is Pennsylvania’s only Great Lakes Port City and offers a wide range of fun, affordable things to do. Erie’s easy to navigate street system allows for little to no traffic headaches, making it effortless to get from point to point.

Erie is a popular destination for visitors, and for good reason! Erie’s location on the shores of Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie, coupled with the wide variety of attractions in Erie County, offers groups a genuinely local experience. Enjoy a boat tour of Presque Isle Bay, a wine tasting in our vast wine region, an afternoon of tax-free shopping or all of the above.
