Lake Erie Shores & Islands Welcome Center East

The Lake Erie Shores & Islands, from Vermilion to Genoa, is Ohio's most exciting, year-round vacation destination. From exciting thrills like amusement parks and waterparks to natural thrills like Lake Erie fishing, beaches and Ohio's only islands, this area offers something to please everyone.

Cedar Point’s been voted the "Best Amusement Park in the World" by Amusement Today readers for 16 years running. Cedar Point features over 70 rides, 16 of which are coasters including Millennium Force, which holds the title of number one steel coaster on the planet. Cedar Point also offers three children’s areas, an ice-skating extravaganza, Dinosaurs Alive!, Luminosity, and other musical entertainment. 

South Bass Island, also referred to as Put-in-Bay, offers unparalleled adventure around every corner, while, Kelleys Island provides a milder blend of attractions with exquisite natural beauty and a pristine beach. 

For liquid refreshment, the Lake Erie Shores & Islands boasts seven water play lands beyond refreshing Lake Erie. Great Wolf Lodge, Castaway Bay, Maui Sands, Kalahari, and Rain all combine lodging, entertainment, and aquatic fun under one roof, attracting visitors year-round with tropical 80º temperatures. Add in two outdoor seasonal waterparks, Soak City and Monsoon Lagoon, and this area is Ohio’s waterpark capital.

History and educational opportunities for enrichment are plentiful too. The variety of experiences is dizzying! Only a few miles separate a 141 year-old Chautauqua community, the birthplace of Thomas Edison, a former U.S. President’s home and various museums, animal adventures, cultural entertainment, lighthouses, and more. The list goes on and on!
