  • What a delightful gem in the heart of Erie!! Best part was that I was the only on the tower so it was magical spending almost 2 hours just soaking in the beautiful weather and scenery without having loads of people blocking the view. $6 for entry and free parking and majestic views of lake erie and downtown. Beautiful place, especially if you are a photographer this is a goldmine for stunning photos. A must see if you are in Erie. Definitely recommend. 😍
  • Very cool walk along the bay. Lots of history with great views of the city. Came in October with no crowd which allowed us to casually walk the entire area. Free parking for 90 minutes by the bicentennial tower.
