Sheldon's Marsh is located on the eastern region of the Lake Erie Shores & Islands and is considered one of the best nature walks in the area. A one-mile paved trail under a lush canopy comprised of various deciduous trees leads visitors out towards the edge of Lake Erie through some of the last remaining stretches of contiguous wetlands. How about a meander hand in hand with someone special along the seemingly private walkway.
Visitors who make it all the way to end of the one mile hike will be greatly rewarded with two, gorgeous white sand beaches perfect for an afternoon relaxation session. Sheldon's Marsh is also the perfect spot for bird watching and fall foliage. Keep your eyes peeled; curious baby deer tend to wander onto the trail while rummaging for food.
Situated on the north side of Kelleys Island, http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/kelleysisland the largest American island in Lake Erie, only those in the know will wander outside of town looking for this hidden gem. But if you do, you'll be rewarded with a beach that feels like it belongs in the Caribbean. Warm, brilliant blue water and a tempting white sand beach make this spot perfect for sun seekers. This last romantic getaway is full of leafy trees and delightful places for a picnic with your beloved.
The crescent shaped beach faces north towards two Canadian islands and is surrounded by limestone cliffs and lush green prairie grass. This state park is not only unique because it harbors a beautiful hidden beach, but also the most impressive example of glacial scouring in the world.
