25 Coolest Midwest Lake Vacation Spots
Kid cool in Lake Erie Shores and Islands, Ohio
No doubt, the family-friendly heart of Ohio's Lake Erie shore is Sandusky (60 miles east of Toledo). It's home to gigantic Cedar Point amusement park, as well as four indoor water-park resorts.
Kids will also love riding ferries to area islands like South Bass and Kelly's, looking for birds at state parks, visiting the Merry-Go-Round Museum, climbing the stairs in Marblehead Lighthouse (left)—and, of course, swimming in the lake.
