We invite you to experience all that the Erie region has to offer. Take a look at the ERIE Relocation Guide for more information about our lovely home, and come join us!
PRESQUE ISLE STATE PARK
We invite you to experience all that the Erie region has to offer. One of our greatest assets is Presque Isle State Park, a 3200-acre natural peninsula on Lake Erie. Its 7 miles of sandy beaches are the perfect destination for swimming or beach glass hunting. You can bike and hike, bird watch, take in a summer concert, and of course, fishing and boating are very popular. Lake Erie perch.....best fresh fish catch!
But we need to make a living before we can have fun. Erie is a leader in the plastics industry, we make locomotives, and build ships. We have a large manufacturing supply chain with first-rate global logistics.
EDUCATION & HEALTHCARE
Higher education opportunities are plentiful in the Erie region with 5 universities and the nation's largest medical college, LECOM.
Erie also has first-class health care with four medical centers. Our technology sector is growing with the development of the Innovation District in the downtown. We are home to Erie Insurance and Logistics Plus, just two members of our robust service sector.
ARTS & CULTURE
Our arts and culture scene is one to note with the Erie Philharmonic, Erie Art Museum, the Erie Playhouse, expERIEnce Children's Museum, and more filling our hearts with music and beauty and talent. If sports are more your thing, well we have the Erie Seawolves AA baseball team, Erie Otters hockey team which is part of the Ontario Hockey League, and an NBA D-League basketball team, the Erie Bayhawks. We cheer them all on at UPMC Park and Erie Insurance Arena!
In 2015, the Erie Downtown Partnership began constructing the framework of a new Downtown Master Plan. This major initiative is now poised to bolster continued development throughout the Downtown district and help aid economic growth and revitalization endeavors well into the future.
We need individuals just like you to truly become engaged—and help support the plan’s implementation.
