We took 7 days to ride this 1168 miles (1879kms) riding it clockwise to first see the Charlotte Genessee Lighthouse Museum in Rochester, NY which is the oldest surviving lighthouse on Lake Ontario. The worlds largest six pack of Labbats Blue beer was an attraction we rode to and stopped at breifly for a pic in Buffalo. The Erie Maritime Museum was a great place to visit with lots of very interesting exhibits and since we were there the Bicentennial Tower offered some nice views of Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie. Rode on to Huron, OH and stopped by the Marblehead lighthouse on the way to Put In Bay. It's worth leaving the bikes and taking the ferry to Put in Bay where once on the Island you can rent a golf cart and tour the entire island. There are shops, restaurants, etc and it is also where you will find Perry's Monument which is a 372 ft tower that commemorates the Battle of Lake Erie. Rode on to Sandusky to check out the Merry Go Round Museum, the highlight was seeing a fella hand painting one of the horses to be used on a merry go round. Nice ride along Lake Erie to Taylor, MI rest of the ride for us back to Ontario was all highway without any more attractions. Lake Ontario-Erie for the VMC.gpx
