The smallest of the Great Lakes, with a mere 871 miles of shoreline, warms quickly in the summer and is perfect for a dip.

We went to a large park which had huge fields, police on horses and nice views of downtown. The weather wasn't the best that day 6/30/2015 but overall it's always nice looking at large bodies of water (even when it's brown) :-D

Great seashore with sandy beaches, scenic bluffs and at times, waves for surfing. Enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, historic towns and villages while you soak in it's maritime heritage. Cedar Point is one of the top amusement parks in the nation.
