Presque Isle Downs and Casino
A thoroughbred track that canceled races because wild deer were jumping onto the track will start races earlier and remove nearby bushes and trees in an attempt to keep the animals at bay, officials said Tuesday.
Geographically speaking, Presque Isle is 3,200 acres of sandy reef that stretches out into the waters of Lake Erie. The state park, while relatively small, is the unofficial title for a much larger area. Pretty much everything in the general area of the park is regarded as Presques Isle. Complete with sand, surf and seaside fun, the only thing Presque Isle is missing over any of the Atlantic shore beach destinations, is salt water. For the best of the beach without the coast, this is your getaway guide to Presque Isle.
Erie is situated near the southeast shore of the great lake with which it shares a name, making it perfect for a weekend getaway this summer. Getting there from Pittsburgh is easy; the hard part is deciding what to do once you arrive.
