Erie in Pennsylvania is one of the most underrated locations in America. It’s mostly known for its lakes with sparkling waters, which gave its nickname as the “Gem City”. It’s situated near the peninsula. Presque Isle State Park gives its guests and locals plenty of opportunities for outdoor water activities such as swimming, biking, sailing, hiking, and a whole lot more. Since many tourists frequent Erie for their many activities, we also recommend some of the best vacation homes to choose from when visiting this underrated location.
