The North Coast Beaches are the beaches in the state of Ohio, United States, along the south shore of Lake Erie. Lake Erie was named after the Erie Native American tribe who lived along its southern shore prior to exploration by Europeans. The coastal counties of Ohio and their respective beaches include:
Interstate 90 runs along the southern shore of Lake Erie.
Interstate 80 (the Ohio Turnpike) also runs east-west through northern Ohio and merges with I-90 through a portion of its course.
State Route 2 tracks a beautiful journey through Ohio wine country, farms, small Western Reserve towns, beautiful lakefront communities and the cities that dot the North Coast.
