Lake Erie Shores & Islands Welcome Center West

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 amusement park offers more rides and roller coasters than any other park on the planet and has been voted "Best Amusement Park in the World" for 15 years in a row. 

Islands have always been an appealing escape, and Ohio’s Lake Erie Islands are no exception. South Bass Island, also known as Put-in-Bay, offers unparalleled adventure around every corner, while, Kelleys Island provides a milder blend of attractions with exquisite natural beauty. Be warned, it’s easy to lose track of time exploring on bicycle or golf cart, especially when you include stopovers at the one-of-a-kind, island-inspired boutiques and eateries.
 
For liquid refreshment, the Lake Erie Shores & Islands boasts six water playlands. Great Wolf Lodge, Castaway Bay, Kalahari, and Rain all combine lodging, entertainment and aquatic fun under one roof, attracting visitors year-round with 80º temperatures. Add in two outdoor seasonal waterparks, 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 136 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!

Special Hours: We offer extended hours starting in May, and are open daily Memorial Day-Labor Day weekends.
