Erie: A best city to visit in summer

Erie is (notoriously?) known for its active winter weather.

But the sometimes brutal winters make way for gorgeous summers!

The folks at Only In Your State think so, too! They recently considered Erie, Pa., one of the best cities in America to visit when the weather is warm.

While there are a lot of great fall, winter and spring things to do, we agree: Erie rocks in the summer!

Of course, the crown jewel is Presque Isle State Park with miles of Lake Erie beaches, biking, walking, hiking, kite flying, fishing, boating and so much more!

But we can’t do an Erie summer trip without the Ravine Flyer at Waldameer, Tall Ships Erie festival, 8 Great Tuesdays concerts, ice cream at Sara’s, hiking at Erie Bluffs State Park, Celebrate Erie festival, Dan Rice Days, the Erie Zoo, U.S. Brig Niagara, the Erie Maritime Museum and so much more!
