Want a free vacation on Lake Erie this summer?
Visit the zoo, sip Ohio-made wine, take in the Erie Islands, dine overlooking the lake, tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, cheer on the Lake County Captains baseball team, zipline and see a play.
The Tour the Shore trip from June 1 to 8, 2018, stretches from Toledo to Ashtabula, with lodging and meals at every spot, courtesy of Northern Ohio convention and visitors bureaus. It’s the second annual contest, coordinated by the Ashtabula County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“It’s a great way for Cleveland to show off one of our best assets,” said Destination Cleveland spokeswoman Kristen Jantonio. “It’s a great opp for the winner to experience everything Lake Erie has to offer.”
