Lake Erie sprawls across four states and each state’s coastline is unique in topography and atmosphere. New York’s shoreline is populated by a number of charming towns and a big city, making for a range of options for couples visiting the region. Just one of several worthwhile destinations, Chautauqua, New York, is a mecca of festivals, where lake cruises are always available and sandy beaches provide the perfect terrain to lay out or enjoy a coastal hike. Buffalo is home to buildings designed by Louis H. Sullivan and parks designed by the landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Manhattan’s Central Park. With much to see, Lake Erie merits an overnight stay. Rent a lakefront cabin or cottage for your next romantic getaway to New York’s Lake Erie.
