Area Description

There is a reason we call this area the Great Lakes Region. For starters, the cool, calming lakes have shaped not only the climate but also the small towns and agriculture. From shipping ports to vineyards to hiking and biking trails this region in the western tip of Pennsylvania has a lot going on. Enjoy a day of fishing and hiking in the Erie National Wildlife Refuge, or take a stroll along the sandy beaches and snap a couple pictures of the lighthouses at Presque Isle State Park. There's also the picturesque small towns of Mercer and Franklin with their inviting, tree-lined streets, Victorian houses and stately courthouses. The Meadville Market House is where you'll find farm-fresh veggies and fruits grown and sold by locals. And speaking of treats, you'll want to stop at the wineries in the grape-growing region. Vineyards like Mazza Vineyards, Penn Shore Vineyards and Presque Isle Wine Cellars are overflowing with sweet Concord grapes and tasty wines. For a different kind of entertainment, stop by the Presque Isle Downs and Casino where horseracing and slot machines is the name of the game. Stop by the Waldameer & Water World for rides and your favorite summertime treats. The Maurice K. Goddard State Park invites you to get back to nature. It has plenty of trails, wetlands, and wildlife for you to gawk at while you stroll around the wilderness. The Pymatuning State Park you'll see where the "ducks walk on the fish" in the Commonwealth's largest reservoir. It's also an angler's paradise. The Pennsylvania Great Lakes Region offers something for everyone!

Includes Cities/Towns: Erie, Meadville, Oil City, Sharon.
