Driving through the PA Great Lakes Region, it's hard to believe such a remarkable land could remain so undisturbed.
Lush forests stretch for miles and miles, their stunning beauty unchanged since thousands of years before the first settlers. Immense Victorian homes and old-fashioned storefronts dot the idyllic towns along the way and speak volumes about the oil boom, which resulted from the first-ever successful oil well in Titusville, now part of the Oil Heritage Region State Park.
Turn onto Route 6 and head west to view the sprawling waters of Lake Erie, the uncluttered soft sand beaches and the treasures of Presque Isle State Park, a National Natural Landmark with seven miles of sandy surf beaches. It's as if the entire region was one big, beautiful gem just waiting to be discovered.
