  • 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 »

  • It always brings back fond memories to be there. Looking over the bay and peninsula from the tower is a wonderful experience.
  • 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.
  • Great landmark to visit whether you are visiting the area or live in town. Great views from the top of the observation deck.
  • Best view of the Erie downtown, Bayfront and Presque Isle Bay and harbors around Erie Good parking Near docks and boats
  • Great view at night time and a popular spot for playing Pok√©mon go.
