Erie offers a mix of outdoor winter activities in close proximity to nightlife, dining and culture, including two dozen wineries in the region and the Erie Art Museum. Families looking to escape winter's chill can have a blast at the Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park & Resort or embrace the cold with an afternoon of ice skating. To enjoy a natural winter wonderland, head to Presque Isle State Park, where snow and ice coat miles of beaches, dunes and waterfront, making it a serene place to walk, ski, fish or snowshoe.
