Where to stay

Things to see

Whether you're getting up close with zebras and giraffes at the African Safari Wildlife Park or zooming around the go-kart track at Island Adventures Family Fun Center, Port Clinton doesn't scrimp on kid-friendly activities. Thrill seekers make a beeline for Cedar Point Amusement Park, aka the "Roller Coaster Capital of the World." For a glimpse of Lake Erie's colorful narrative, head to Marblehead Lighthouse, one of the most-photographed landmarks in the Great Lakes region. It's been watching over the coastline since 1822 and commands panoramic views over Lake Erie. Allow time to explore the scenic walking trails or enjoy a picnic on the grass. For a change of scene, ride a passenger ferry to Put-in-Bay, a lively village on South Bass Island. You could easily spend an entire day exploring the sandy beaches, and visiting attractions like the historic Valentine Doller Estate winery and Perry's Cave Family Fun Center.
