Lake Erie is the fourth-largest lake of the five Great Lakes in North America, and the eleventh-largest globally, in terms of surface area. Families can enjoy an array of activities here including bird watching where each spring and fall the area is inundated with thousands of rare migrating birds. An underground railroad tour, relax on the sandy foreshores, visit Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial Visitors Center, Glacial Grooves and Shores and Islands Lighthouse. Lake Erie is a perfect destination for families as it offers a little bit of everything. From relaxing on the beach, to historical sites and watching the birds fly by amongst a breathtaking backdrop, this is an amazing part of North America, and indeed the world.
