Presque Isle is true to its name, a very long, skinny peninsula that hooks around Erie Pennsylvania like Cape Cod does for Plymouth Massachusetts. Better yet, for hikers and bike riders Presque Isle has a full forest tree cover to provide shelter with the typical winds of the Great Lake Erie. Along the path are sites of nearby Erie – no wonder with Presque’s protection the seaport was chosen by settlers hundreds of years ago. Of course, with such valuable real estate, it led to wars between the Native Americans, British and American Settlers.
