  1. I like ERIE, many things to do and see. It is very close for me only about 130 miled for me.

  2. I’m trying to enter but I don’t see anything to click or fill out under the “Enter to win here”

  3. This is such a great package and contest! We love to return to our hometown whenever possible and not only do the things we already enjoy but also try new things! I can’t believe that we never knew about Your Sailing Adventure, just added it to our summer bucket list. Cheers and good luck!

  4. It’s about time Pittsburghers truly learn to appreciate the wonder of Erie, PA. The Great Lakes constitute America’s North Coast. It’s time we value them as much as we do America’s other coasts. It’s the only one of our coasts that experiences and provides the joys, wonders, pleasures, and majesty of four seasons. Remember, too, as the bumper sticker proudly proclaims: the Great lakes are unsalted and shark-free!

  5. It’s been years, since an Aunt & Uncle took me to Erie, for some summer fun, in the 1950’s. Would love to win, to be able to visit again, grasp all that I hear of the Fun & Great Sea Food in ERIE. Crossing my fingers, Wish me LUCK!!!
