"The Life of Erie"

Erie is a small city in the Northwestern Corner of PA. It is right off Lake Erie. I have lived here for ten years now and have found like other cities, it has its downsides and upsides. Erie has the beautiful Presque Isle which is 14 miles of land wrapped around the lake where one can walk, jog, ride a bike, or drive for relaxation. The night view of the lake is best at the dock where the bicentennial tower stands lit up. It is a great place if you are 21. The nightlife has expanded with a variety of clubs and pool halls. However for those under 21 there isn't much to do. The younger ones can only go to a movie or the mall pretty much. Erie is fun for the older crowd and a great location for retirement.
