Erie is situated directly on Lake Erie, not far from the Allegheny National Forest, about halfway between Buffalo, N.Y., to the north and Cleveland, Ohio, to the south. Millions of tourists visit Erie for water recreation at Presque Isle State Park, as well as attractions like a casino and horse racetrack.
Erie is known as the Flagship City because of Oliver Hazard Perry’s flagship Niagara, one of the remaining ships from the War of 1812, which floats just offshore. Other cultural assets within the city include the Erie Land Light, Warner Theatre, its several Philharmonic orchestras, the Bicentennial Tower and the Blasco Library and Erie Maritime Museum located nearby.
The lake is a popular destination for fishing and boating, and Presque Isle State Park, Pennsylvania’s largest state park, offers water recreation and good beaches. The downtown area has a new waterfront redevelopment project with a new convention center and park facilities. The city has cultural amenities and museums and a minor league baseball team. The median home price is about $85,000
