I regularly go to Presque Isle from Stuebenville Ohio. The windurfing
there is pretty good. On the tip of the penninsula is Sunset beach.
There are no lifeguards there - it's for kite flyers, windsurfers, jet-skiers,
etc. The wind is usually pretty good there. If the waves are too big there
go to the east pier - on the east side of the outer penninsula, about halh
a mile after the road becomes two-way.
Erie is good for families. Just last weekend I took my three kids
there. They like Beach 6 and Budny beach. We also spent a day at Water-
World park - all sorts of water slides. There's plenty of motels close
to the penninsula, but be sure to make a reservation at least a week in
