Sandusky

Trip Planner USA  /  Ohio  /  Sandusky
Sandusky positively bustles in the summertime due to its famed amusement park. That, however, isn't the town's only draw. The historical downtown, with its brick buildings, waterfront location on Lake Erie, and collection of boutiques catches many a visitor's eye. Sandusky also serves as a prime base for trips to the lake's white-sand beaches, coastal hiking trails, fishing hot spots, excursions to the Lake Erie Islands, and area water parks. The town's tourism season runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and things quiet down outside of this period. Plan the details of your Sandusky holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use United States trip planner .

Where to stay in Sandusky

Most of the accommodations in Sandusky are clustered around Castaway Bay to the east of downtown. From here, it's a quick drive up to Cedar Point Amusement Park, and you'll find plenty of hotels, motels, and campgrounds. Some establishments offer packages that include tickets to the park. The options in the historical downtown remain more limited, but a couple of charming inns and bed and breakfasts take you away from the bustle of the places that accommodate park-goers. Regardless of where you choose to stay, make reservations as far in advance as possible if you plan to visit during summer.
