Presque Isle State Park is a 3,200-acre sandy peninsula that arches into Lake Erie. As Pennsylvania's only "seashore," Presque Isle offers its visitors a beautiful coastline and many recreational activities, including swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, bicycling and in-line skating. A National Natural Landmark, Presque Isle is a favorite spot for migrating birds. Because of the many unique habitats, Presque Isle contains a greater number of the state's endangered, threatened and rare species than any other area of comparable size in Pennsylvania.

We enjoyed the story hour and seeing what all we can find in the sand. We also enjoyed making our picture frame and using items we found in the sand that was provided for us to go searching. What fun we had.

Went out on New Year's Eve. It was well- organized and fun. We truly enjoyed seeing the park after dark. It was a great way to break in the new year! Definitely planning on going again.
