Into sight seeing? Visit Marblehead lighthouse! It was absolutely beautiful there! Marblehead is one of Lake Erie’s most famous and photographed landmarks as well! There is lots of space around for walking, picnics, and of course photos!I believe you can tour this lighthouse as well, we did not though. It was such a relaxing place to visit and if I recall right, you can see Cedar Point across the lake! If you go around sunset when we went you can see the roller coasters all lit up!
When my son was about 6 months old we planned a trip to Sandusky, Ohio with my mother. When she first mentioned going there I had my doubts . She wanted to go to see a lighthouse, which we did, but I wasn’t so sure about anything else being fun. To my surprise, Sandusky was actually alot of fun!
If you have any adrenaline junkies in your family, you must go to Cedar Point! It is the roller coaster capital of the world! I think they have like 17? Something around there! Don’t worry, if that is not your thing, they have lots to do still! They have a huge kid section, and Cedar Point is the home to Snoopy and the gang! My son loved playing in the Snoopy House!
Looking for a place to stay? You can stay at Castaway Bay. This was still being built when we went. Castaway Bay is a huge indoor waterpark and resort in one! Plus staying there gets you into Cedar Point one hour before the general public!
Animal lover? Be sure to visit African Safari Wildlife Park. This is one of those drive thru places where you can see the animals up close! This was the first time we’d ever done this and it was fantastic! My son was too little to really know what was going on but us adults loved it! They warn you that the animals will stick their heads in the windows and they do! You can buy cups of food to feed the animals as you go, they tell you just to hold the cup out, but hold on tight cause they will steal the whole thing! My husband was actually feeding the giraffes out of his hand! It was really neat. They also have a petting zoo which is great for little ones.
Like exploring? Check out Seneca Caverns. Several layers of underground caves to explore. Fascinating for all ages! I did see it flooded pretty bad in spring of 2011 and wasn’t expected to dry out til august of 2011, so I think it would be safe to go, but you may wanna call ahead to be sure. You could only see 2 of the 7 levels of the cavern due to flooding and only got a $2 discount. Underground caves always freak me out a bit but they are always neat to see, I’m just glad once I make it out!
To my surprise Sandusky actually turned out to be pretty great! There was still several places that sounded fun but we ran out of time! We definitely plan to go back someday, I know my kids will love it!
