    Presque Isle State Park is close by, and makes for an interesting day. There's also a restored sailing ship museum that ought to be interesting.

    Al,

    I was going to make fun of Erie, as people in western Pa are wont to do, but it's like shooting fish in a barrel.

    I swear, I'm just cutting and pasting:

    "Known for its lake effect snow, Erie is in the heart of the rust belt and has begun to focus on tourism as a driving force in its economy."

    They *do* have a casino there...

    But seriously, try this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erie_PA#Recreation

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Thanks anyhow. The wife and kids went without me. In a way it is better. I can get more done without anyone here. That and my back does not do well on long rides.
