Flagship City

Erie boasts a state park, casino, and racetrack all with the name Presque Isle. The destination won the All-America City Award in 1972 for its contribution to American culture and economy, after rallying its citizens to develop the city and achieving excellent results. Built along the lake of the same name, the city’s downtown cultural scene developed from its relationship to the lake, which is a draw for water enthusiasts. While waterskiing and boating take precedence on the lake, art and performance thrive downtown. Millionaires Row showcases the stately Victorian mansions built by the city's founders. Make Erie central to your United States travel plans using our United States trip builder.
