  • Fantastic way to view the lake and the sunsets. However do not look at downtown Erie. The eyesore will spoil the moment unless the city fixes major tourism issues to attract tourists.
  • The Bicentennial Tower is an Erie staple. This is a must-do for any local or tourist because great views of the city and the water await you! Erie should be proud to have this great attraction on it's beautiful bayfront!
  • Awesome view. Didn't mind paying $4 at all. Pretty cheep if you ask me.
  • Great view of the lake and of Erie and a great workout to run up the stairs. Kind of downgrading to have to stop and wait to pay $4 tho.
  • From the TOP of that Tall Tower, You can ENJOY a BEAUTIFUL VIEW of PRESQUE ISLE BAY & of LAKE ERIE! The Scenery around DOBBIN'S LANDING has Completely changed for the better & is more Scenic than ever before! The ERIE TOURIST BOARD should be proud of what they've done! TOURISTS should enjoy the NEW ADDITIONS of LAKE ERIE! ⛵ 🛳 🛥 ⛴
