Region 4 Awesome Autumn VI - Lake City/Erie, Pennsylvania

by Terry Whitesell

 October 4 thru 8, 2018  

Explore northwestern Pennsylvania from Camp Eriez, a private campground named after the Eriez Native American Indians.  Located in Lake City, 15 miles west of Erie (PA's 4th largest city) on scenic Route 5, we can stroll down to the bluffs overlooking the lake. 

 The list of things to do is literally endless: visit Presque Isle State Park, the Erie Zoo & Botanical Gardens, Waldameer Water World, Lake Erie Maritime Museum, pumpkin farms & Presque Isle Casino; bike; fish; kayak & boat; shop; golf; attend sporting events; drive the winery trail to 25 distinct wineries that span PA & NY along the southern shores of Lake Erie.  With aprx. 14,000 acres of grapes, PA ranks 4th nationally in grapes grown & 8th in wine production; visit breweries & sample award-winning beers along the Lake Erie Ale Trail; take a fall foliage ride on PA's famous US Route 6 or the Great Lakes Seaway Trail, a National Scenic Byway.

 Most of the time will be spent pursuing your own interests, but Thursday we'll meet for a potluck dinner (meat provided); Friday we'll take a tour of the Tom Ridge Environmental Center & view a 50-minute movie.  That nite we'll return to the campground for a catered dinner.  For Saturday & Sunday suppers, we'll eat at different local restaurants (pay on your own).  Breakfasts & lunches are also on your own.
