Sandusky, Ohio: Family-Friendly Town Along Lake Erie
Sandusky is perched on the shores of Lake Erie, about midway between Cleveland and Toledo. It's a family-friendly destination with a slew of theme parks and scenic coastal islands. Cedar Point, one of the oldest amusement parks in the United States, closes down each winter, but there's still plenty to do indoors. Check out the Ghostly Manor Thrill Center for a spooky haunted-house adventure or head to the Merry-Go-Round Museum to see antique carousels of all shapes and sizes restored to their original splendor.
Nearby South Bass Island, located off the Ohio coast in Lake Erie, offers a scenic respite. Here, you can ice-fish and ice-skate in the 33-acre South Bass Island State Park.
