Three Day Sandusky Trip
Planning a Sandusky trip? This city is located on the shores of Lake Erie about an hour east of Toledo. It’s known for its family attractions, including water, wildlife and amusement parks. Sprawling Cedar Point park is renowned for its 18+ roller coasters. You can visit the Merry-Go-Round Museum to see a working vintage carousel and restored wooden animals. The Maritime Museum of Sandusky has exhibits on boat building, shipwrecks and ice harvesting.
We recommend spending about 3 days here. You can spend one day at Cedar Point, one at a water park, and the last exploring museums that spark your interest. During the summer, you could spend a half day as well on one of the Lake Erie Island Cruises.
