Presque Isle State Park

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.

301 Peninsula Drive, Suite 1, Erie, PA 16505-2042

My wife and I were unable to view the virtual tour and were very disappointed. After registering on 4/12 I received a confirmation email but there was no clear message that I needed to install an app in order to view the tour. I was left expecting to receive an email with a link that would take us to the tour. I spent the first 15 minutes after the tour started scrambling online trying to connect to the tour. Couldn't you have just stated "You will need to install the Microsoft Teams app to view the tour" ????
