The best places to live is in the south of the city or in one of the suburbs of Erie; Millcreek, Lawrence park, Wesleyville. Harborcreek is very nice with great schools, but its a few miles farther to the east, out in the country.
I was at Presque Isle State Park though this weekend, was nice enough.

I know from living in Akron though you can't polish a turd.

Thats the most Erie has to brag about. I go canoeing in the bay there every so often with a friend. Did you go there for a visit or stop by while driving your truck ?
