Many of us take for granted how lucky we are to live next to the Lake and forget to take advantage of all it has to offer. Here is a quick list of activities to do for a fun filled day on the waterfront.

Go Kayaking on the Water

If you have even the smallest bit of an adventurist side, put it to use by grabbing a couple of kayaks, some friends, and head down to the water. Lake Erie is the perfect place to kayak for leisure and fun,  or for a good workout. (If you don’t have your own, check out Great Lakes Kayaking in Lorain).

This lakeside eatery has a great patio, so you can enjoy your meal and watch the boats go by all at the same time. Not to mention their food is delicious (especially their lobster bisque)!
