TRAVELING TO ERIE
Erie is located in Pennsylvania’s northwestern corner along the shores of Lake Erie. The city is within a two hours’ drive from Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Buffalo at the intersection of highways I-90 and I-79, making it convenient for those driving from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. Additionally, the Erie International Airport is located only six miles from downtown, and services flights through Delta, United, and American Airlines.
With our wide range of attractions, Erie has something to please everyone on your reunion. Here’s a glimpse into some reunion-favorite activities:
- Take in the scenic beauty of Presque Isle State Park with a picnic event or a dinner cruise and learn about the history of this natural gem at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center (TREC).
- Tour the Erie Maritime Museum and get to know our region’s role in the War of 1812. Board Erie’s famous U.S. Brig Niagara for a trip along Presque Isle Bay or to host a military service or memorial.
- Enjoy a glass of local wine while touring Lake Erie Wine Country, or “cheers” with your fellow veterans along the Lake Erie Ale Trail.
- Plan a night on the town with a visit to Presque Isle Downs & Casino, a show at the historic Warner Theatre, or a ball game at UPMC Park.
