#30DaysofThanks: 30 Things We “Lake Erie Love” About Lake Erie Shores & Islands

Nov 10, 2015 BY LAKE ERIE SHORES AND ISLANDS

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Lake Erie Shores & Islands invites you to join us in recognizing all the tremendous “gifts” our destination has to offer. Besides the obvious, top-of-mind attractions, our region is fortunate to have an astonishing number of people, places, and things that make it worth raving about. We want to acknowledge all of these gifts - we are so thankful for.

We are grateful to have Lake Erie and miles of scenic coastline to enjoy. Its beaches, scenic beauty and recreational opportunities are unquestionably a primary attraction, as well as a resource. Cedar Point, our world-class amusement park, brings people from all over the world to our communities, to vacation as well as work, and provides a full season of entertainment and enjoyment for all generations. The islands, as diverse as they are, provide an escape unlike any other, beginning with the cruise or flight from the mainland and ending with the smiles and social posts documenting the adventure. While some people conquer the islands in a day, others stay for a season; the same is true of Lakeside. Visitors return year-after-year for the inspirational lectures, diverse entertainment, and Chautauqua family setting.

With this in mind, Lake Erie Shores & Islands is posting a #30DaysofThanks social media tribute to express gratitude for 30 things we “Lake Erie Love” about our Shores & Islands region. Here's what we've posted so far:
