Ottawa County has more than just sports and nature appreciation. For thrills, ride the roller coaster at Cedar Point Amusement Park. Or relax by taking a walk along the Port Clinton City Beach. Plus, the area offers simple appeal with its breathtakingly beautiful vistas. The lake-view houses for sale have an excellent view of the sunrise (or sunset, for those living the Marblehead Peninsula lakefront) over Lake Erie daily.
Lake Erie is bordered by the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio, as well as Canada. Beautiful, great fishing, boating, recreation, scenery, Bird Watching, etc. Lake Erie is the eleventh largest lake in the world (by surface area) and the fourth largest of the Great lakes in surface area and the smallest by volume. Ninety-five percent of Lake Erie's total flow of water comes via the Detroit river. The rest comes from precipitation. Lake Erie is the shallowest of the Great Lakes and is especially vulnerable to fluctuating water levels. Lake Erie is the warmest and most biologically productive of the Great Lakes and Walleye fishing is widely considered the best in the World.
Besides beach, sunsets and fishing, the area is known for its wineries and covered bridges. There’s also golf courses and an 8-mile greenway trail for cyclists. Geneva on the Lake (the “strip”) is well known in the area -- it is a mile long summer attraction (w/small amusement park, waterslides, mini-golf, arcades, go-cart track, karaoke bars, etc.).
Six Flags Amusement Park (plus the new animal park and water park) is about 45 minutes southwest (Aurora).
Cleveland (Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame plus many other attractions) is about 45 minutes west.
Further west of Cleveland, you’ll find more lake front resort towns (Vermillion, etc.) and Cedar Point Amusement Park.
