greens, tree-lined fairways, and multiple tee boxes to provide an outstanding golf experience. The 34 sand bunkers and numerous water hazards will keep you challenged. Lake View Country Club is a private golf club located 20 miles from Erie in North East, Pa, ½ mile south of I-90 at Exit 41. The Championship course is maintained to a very high standard and offers spectacular views. The par 72 layout measures 6854 from the back tees. Five sets of tees allow the course to be enjoyable for all players. Fish from shore or stream, bring your boat or hire a charter (we suggest Bassin’ on the Bay). Marinas, boat launches and bait and tackle concessions dot Erie’s Bayfront. Northwest Pennsylvania is one of the country’s greatest angling destinations and Lake Erie, Presque Isle Bay and the surrounding creeks, streams, tributaries and ponds are the places to land your big catch! Cast your line for diverse game fish species including steelhead, trout, muskies, walleye, pan fish, pike, bluegill, smallmouth and largemouth bass, salmon, catfish, perch and crappies. Fish Bits: Fishing enthusiasts are presented with a variety of options in the spring. Steelhead is plentiful from late September to early May in Lake Erie tributaries and creeks. In April, pan fish and bass are found in smaller ponds, while pike and muskies are seen in Presque Isle Bay depending on the ice melt. April also brings the arrival of trout season plus the appearance of bass and walleye in Lake Erie. All of the above mentioned fish species are available in May with the exception of Steelhead. Smallmouth bass travel to Presque Isle Bay in May to spawn and June is heavy with trout, bluegill and inland pike.

REFLECTIONS OF THE PAST From the battlefields of wars to the innovative thinkers and their inventions that shaped us, Erie - Pennsylvania’s fourth largest city, played an important role in our nation’s history. Here you can relive the Battle of Lake Erie/War of 1812, the French & Indian War and the Underground Railroad. Erie County was formed in the 1800’s after Pennsylvania purchased the Erie Triangle from the U.S. Government in 1792 for approximately $151,000. Taken from part of Allegheny County, the new county was then named for Lake Erie and the Eriez Native American Indian tribe, which was destroyed by a combination of pestilence and the Seneca nation under Chief Cornplanter in the mid-seventeenth century. The first European settlers in the area were the French, who built Fort Presque Isle on the city’s site in 1753. The French abandoned the fort to the English, who lost it in 1763 at the start of Pontiac’s Rebellion. When General “Mad” Anthony Wayne induced the native tribes to make peace in 1794, the area was opened to settlement. The city was laid out in 1795 and became a port in 1801. In 1813, in what is often referred to as Erie’s proudest historical moment, Commodore Oliver Perry defeated the British in the Battle of Lake Erie. Most of Commodore Perry’s ships were built in Erie.

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. When in port, the Niagara is an educational resource for many and conducts interpretive tours. Erie’s wealth of history doesn’t stop there. Downtown Erie includes several historic sites, most importantly, the newly renovated Thomas B. Hagen History Center on historic Millionaire’s Row (West 6th Street). The History Center is home to the Watson-Curtze Mansion, the Carriage House and the King-Mertens Archive Building. The Watson-Curtze Mansion and Carriage House were designed by the Buffalo architectural firm of Green & Wicks and built in 1891. Designed in the iconic Dichardsonian Romanesque style, the mansion features intricate wood carvings, multiple stained glass windows, oak flooring, 12 fireplaces, and a ballroom. The Mansion is listed on the National Historic Register. The Carriage House, connected to the archives, houses an Erie gift shop and reading room.

HISTORY & HERITAGE!

Learn about Erie’s rich waterfront heritage at the Erie Maritime Museum through historical artifacts, exhibits and interactive hands-on displays illustrating the War of 1812 and Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s victory over the British during the Battle of Lake Erie. The museum is also the home port of the U. S. Brig Niagara, the Official Flagship of the

Stop in Waterford PA to see the only statue of George Washington in a British uniform. The statue commemorates Major George Washington’s mission to Fort LeBoeuf to request the French to recognize Britain’s claim to the area. France’s refusal led to the French & Indian War.

The historic Lawrence Park Dinor located on Main Street in Lawrence Park, serves great food in a nostalgic, fun atmosphere.

WINES, BREWS & CHEWS WINES

“Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.” – Joan Collins Satisfy all your wine desires at Lake Erie Wine Country. Pennsylvania’s moderate climate and rolling terrain provides some of the best grape growing conditions on the East Coast. Take the scenic route outside Erie and head east on Route 5; the Great Lakes Seaway Trail (an America’s Byway™) to experience the 25 distinct wineries of that span PA and NY along the southern shores of Lake Erie. With approximately 14,000 acres of grapes, Pennsylvania ranks 4th nationally in the amount of grapes grown and 8th in wine production. The warm waters of Lake Erie are ideal for grape growing and the proof is in the award-winning wines ranging from Vidal Blanc, Riesling, Country Reds and Whites to Dutch Apple, Blueberry and Ice Wines. Stops at Arrowhead Wine Cellars, Arundel Cellars & Brewing Company, Courtyard Winery, Lakeview Wine Cellars, Mazza Vineyards, Penn Shore Vineyards, Presque Isle Wine Cellars, and South Shore Wine Company are highly recommended. Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing in neighboring Westfield, NY offers premium wines in addition to their high-quality smallbatch craft distilled beverages. Finish up at the Grape Discovery Center to learn about the oldest and largest Concord grape-growing region in the world. The grape harvest season culminates in late September with the annual Wine Fest. Tours and tastings are offered year-round. lakeeriewinecountry.org

BREWS

Pennsylvania’s only Great Lakes City is known for its port as well as its porters! The Erie region is home to eleven breweries that make up the Lake Erie Ale Trail: Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing, Arundel Cellars & Brewing, Blue Canoe Brewery, Erie Ale Works, Erie Brewing Company, Millcreek Brewing Company, The Brewerie at Union Station, Voodoo Brewing Company, Timbercreek Tap & Table, Sprague Farm & Brew Works and Lavery Brewing Company. Each brewery refines their beer from simple ingredients, mixing in a passion for their craft with a personable twist that gives uniqueness to an ever-expanding assortment of flavors, styles and funky names. Grab a growler or a pint today! Learn the process, meet the brewers and sample award-winning beers along the Lake Erie Ale Trail. The history of breweries in our greater Erie region is deep and rich. The first local brewery opened its doors over 200 years ago—-36 years before the city of Erie was even incorporated. Over 90 breweries would open from that time up until 1920 when Prohibition came into effect. Only 2 local breweries survived the 13 years of prohibition and in 1933 the now famous Koehler’s Beer came to Erie once again through The Erie Brewing Company. Request your FREE copy of the Lake Erie Ale Trail brochure (814-454-1000 or info@visiterie.com). Tours and tastings are available at most facilities yearround. lakeeriealetrail.com
