“When you think of variety, think of Lake Erie Shores & Islands,” according to Christopher Lewis, the Sports Tourism Manager.
Lake Erie Shores & Islands, conveniently located between Cleveland and Toledo, has everything from islands only accessible to by boat or helicopter, to new sports arenas with more than 30 courts.
“There is something going on every weekend,” says Lewis.
Lake Erie’s state of the art Sports Park opened in 2017 with outdoor facilities that accommodate baseball and softball, soccer and lacrosse. They also have a big indoor facility, Cedar Point Sports Center, that can accommodate basketball with its 10 courts and volleyball with its 20 courts. Cedar Point also includes championship arenas, retractable seating for spectators, on-site event space and a delicious concession stand.
Of course, after the tournament is over, there is still much to do with many options your whole crew will enjoy. “You name it, we have it,” Lewis says. “When you come to Lake Erie Shores & Islands and see everything we have to offer and everything there is to do, we are confident no one in your family will be bored.”
Kelley’s Island, accessible by ferry or helicopter, features beaches, kayaking, hiking, historical sightseeing, monuments, shops and more.
If you like the thrill of a good rollercoaster, then seasonal Cedar Point Amusement Park is your go-to! Cedar Point Amusement Park is home to over 70 rides/attractions and is open May through October each year. If the summer heat is too much, feel free to cool off at neighboring Cedar Point Water Park where you will be greeted with almost 20 acres of water-based activities.
Also featured is Lake Erie itself. On the lake, feel free to lay on the beach, kayak, paddleboard, or bring your fishing skills as fishing is permitted.
Of course, with these attractions you will want to stay longer; 8,000+ rooms plus RV parking and camping allows you to do so.
Lake Erie Shores & Islands also serves as home to a variety of restaurants and shopping centers, as well as having an equal amount of rural and downtown activities that will fill your stay with nothing but good times and great memories.
