Volstead Bar

This speakeasy is probably one of my favorite places to go for a great cocktail and to relax. Only noted by its green door and the red and green light bar in the window (red means no seats are available) it is an easy place to miss, but once you find it you will quickly fall in love and want to stay.

Cedar Point

Home to the tallest, fastest and most exhilarating coasters in the world. If you need an adrenaline rush this is the place to go.

I’m not a fan of coasters, but my friends that are absolutely LOVE going to Cedar Point numerous times throughout the summer.

Five Water Parks

The Sandusky area is home to five water parks and also takes the honor of having the largest indoor water park in the Midwest.

Head over to Kalahari Resorts to experience the largest water park and so much more. It’s definitely a resort worth visiting.

There are three indoor water parks at Great Wolf Lodge, Castaway Bay and Kalahari and two outdoor water parks at Cedar Point Shores and Monsoon Lagoon.

Lake Erie Islands

There are three islands off the shores of Sandusky. 

All of them offer something a little different, but they are all worth a visit. Put-In-Bay (South Bass Island) is probably the most popular destination and has plenty to offer singles, couples & families.

Kelleys Island offers lots of green space, but fewer resources than South Bass Island, but is lovely to visit.

Middle Bass Island is home to a state park and glacier grooves which are absolutely worth a visit.

Those are just a few of the highlights, but there is so much more to do!
