EA Picks: Outdoor Summer Spots

Presque Isle State Park

Erie's natural wonder, Presque Isle is 3,200 acres of sandy shoreline and a uniquely popular spot for hiking, biking, picnicking, fishing, swimming, kayaking, long boarding, roller blading, and all around great fun.


Located at the gateway to Presque Isle, Sara's is a local favorite for dine-in or drive-through hot dogs (Smith's, of course), hamburgers, crispy curly fries, orange and vanilla twist cones and more. Don't let summer go by without making a visit.

Rum Runners

Your only port of call and home of Erie's original Rum Runner cocktail, Rum Runners has been one of Erie's most popular waterfront hangouts since 1988. With delicious drinks and unparalleled view of Presque Isle Bay, Rum Runners has been said to have “Erie’s Best Patio” and was voted “Erie’s #1 Summer Time Place to Hangout”.

Sunview Miniature Golf

More than just a beautifully landscaped mini-golf course, and perfect for a family night or date night, Sunview offers a driving range, all-speed baseball and softball machines, bumper boats, video arcades, homemade fudge and specialty caramel corn. Check them out on Route 99.
