Dip into that pot and take a day or two to visit any of these amazing destinations that will give you that reprieve you’ve been dreaming about all year.

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.
