  • We had decided to visit the Bicentennial Tower before dinner while in Erie. The quick self guided ride up the elevator and view in the enclosed glass enclosed platform was great. Great view of the bay...  more »
  • Was staying in a hotel nearby so we headed over to check out the tower. It had a good view but isn't anything too memorable.  more »
  • We climbed the tower the other day and just loved the views. Nice little gift shop also. It was built for the 2000 centennial and I think it is a real asset to Erie.  more »

  • Fantastic view of Presque Isle Bay and Island. If using elevator it is $7.00 person and children under two are free. If using elevator go all the way to the top, if you get off on the second floor you will have to take the steps down. Able to get some great pictures of the view from the top of the tower.
  • Going to the top of the tower is a must! Gives a great view of the city and surrounding area, and is cheap to go up!
  • Very nice place for a stop off from I-90; or for a pleasant relaxing couple of hours in Erie PA. The pier is easy to access and parking is pretty good too. There is a nice iced cream tore there under the tower; and boat rides are offered all day long. Nice views of the lake.
  • The Bicentennial Tower gives a commanding overall view of the pride and joy of Erie. Enjoy the view and take in all it has to offer.
  • Went to walk around the tower & the bay yesterday at sunset allot of people & good sights.
