“Thanks to the oh-so-gracious gift of geography, almost the entire northern border of the fine state of Ohio is flanked by the gorgeous expanse of Lake Erie. And, when you find yourself in The Land, there’s one particular Lake Erie resort town, which is located roughly 50 miles east of Downtown Cleveland, that’s always worth the visit — Geneva-on-the-Lake. Billed as “Ohio’s first summer resort,” GOTL has been welcoming visitors (like John D. Rockefeller and Henry Ford) to this coastal community since the 1900s with a mainstreet-like strip that’s filled with old-school taverns, retro food stands and other attractions reminiscent of Coney Island or the old Euclid Beach Park. Throw in handfuls of unique wineries and a stunning lakefront park, and there’s a weekend getaway with your name on it.”
