Along the shores of Lake Erie and near the Pennsylvania border with Ohio and New York is the city of Erie. More than 101,000 people live in this once industry-heavy city. Erie is known as the Flagship City because it served as the home port of Oliver Hazard Perry’s flagship Niagara. It’s also referred to as the Gem City because of the sparkling waters of Lake Erie.
Temperatures in the summer average a comfortable 79 degrees Fahrenheit while highs in the winter can drop to 34 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s considered one of the snowiest places in the U.S. due to the lake-effect snowfall it receives each year, making it a favorable destination for those who enjoy the cold, snowball fights and building snowmen.
Erie Activities and Attractions
Shoppers from Ohio, New York and Ontario, Canada, visit Millcreek Mall and the shops on Peach Street in Erie. More than 4 million people each year flock here to take advantage of the tax exemption on clothing. Some of the anchor stores at the mall include JC Penney, Macy’s and Sears.
Presque Isle State Park sits on the site of a former fort that was abandoned by the French in 1760 after they lost their last post west of Niagara. The park is on a peninsula that juts out into the lake. There are 11 miles of beaches, trails, the North Pier, and the Tom Ridge Environmental Center. You can spend a day looking for beach glass that’s been formed by bottles that were dumped into the lake and reshaped by the water before washing ashore. The park is also popular in the winter when people head here to enjoy snowshoeing along the trails.
