There is something deeply romantic about Lake Erie and its small islands owned by the USA. Below are some of the the suggestions for spots where you can find romantic settings in the islands of Lake Erie. It is best reached by air. Rent a car from Cleveland’s Hopkins Airport and follow the shorelines of Lake Erie until you reach Sandusky, then there is just a short drive to Port Clinton. A charming hotel there is the Island House http://port-clinton-ohio-hotel.com/. Take the Miller Ferry to the islands of Lake Erie. Catch it just across and down the street from the Hotel. http://millerferry.com/
The Marblehead Lighthouse http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/marbleheadlighthouse is not only the oldest light in continuous operation on the Great Lakes, but perhaps the most iconic symbol of the Lake Erie Shores & Islands. Each year thousands of visitors march to the top of the 77 steps that make up the lighthouse staircase, to catch a glimpse of the western basis of Lake Erie, following in the many footsteps of previous people who have visited this romantic, historical relic.
On a very clear day, onlookers may even be able to catch a glimpse of parts of Canada. The flat, almost picnic table like slabs of limestone below the lighthouse tend to be a favorite sun bathing spot for locals and visitors alike. If you're lucky, a night visit will yield a fireworks show to east from Cedar Point's famous Luminosity show. Nothing like being together in the dark with your sweetie and curling up watching fireworks against the blackened sky.
