'''Sandusky'''[http://www.ci.sandusky.oh.us/] is a city in [[Northwest Ohio]] and county seat of [[Erie County (Ohio)|Erie County]], on Ohio's north coast along '''Lake Erie''' between [[Cleveland]] and [[Toledo (Ohio)|Toledo]]. It is perhaps best known for [[Cedar Point Amusement Park]], home to some of the world's tallest and fastest roller coasters. It is one of Ohio's prettiest downtowns and is very clean. Walking along the waterfront in the business district should be considered very safe compared to most cities. There is a pier for those who want to fish. They say late winter fishing is great at the pier due to the fish gathering in Sandusky Bay for spawning in the local rivers and streams. Elevation: 580ft/176.8m.

Driving is easy and pleasurable. Taxis are scarce. Ferries to the islands leave from [[Catawba Island]], [[Marblehead (Ohio)|Marblehead]] and [[Port Clinton]] to the west. If you are just pleasure driving, consider going west along the lake to [[Marblehead (Ohio)|Marblehead]], [[Catawba Island]] and [[Port Clinton]]. These are more scenic areas with plenty of tourist attractions. Be on the outlook for bicycles and pedestrians during the day and after dark. Traffic and drinking while driving laws are strictly enforced.
