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.

The main attraction is of course [[Cedar Point]], but the surrounding area along the lake offers plenty to see. By going west toward Catawba Island (which is accessed by a land bridge), you will find plenty of historic sites like the [[Marblehead]] Lighthouse from where you can see [[Cedar Point]], or picnic, fish or watch the lake boat traffic and enjoy the coolest breeze in Ohio. Johnson Island has a Civil War Cemetery at the site of a Civil War Officers prison compound. The area is littered with historic sites. The older cemeteries in Sandusky and on the islands are also very interesting for those who appreciate stone carving.
