As the largest natural glacier lake in Pennyslvania, Conneaut Lake is home to a tiny community who care deeply about their surroundings.
Take a boat cruise on the lake on an old sternwheeler and enjoy tidbits of local history as you coast around the perimeter -- a great way to get your bearings of the area.
The top attraction here is Conneaut Lake Park, an historic theme park with a vintage wooden roller coaster (first opened in 1938) and many old-themed rides, bumper cars, miniature trains, a carousel, and more.
For a relaxing day out, head to the shores of the lake and chill out on the beach. Bring a picnic and take a dip in the waters, and afterward (for the adults only) check out the Conneaut Cellars Winery & Distillery to sample some vino.
Visit in summer to really enjoy the lake in great weather.
