Erieau is a great place to bring the family to enjoy the completely accessible playground, build a sand castle and rent water sport equipment for a fun day on Lake Erie. There is a mobility mat that lead to the water, making the water and beach accessible to all. You will want to take a walk on the pier and capture a photo of the unforgettable scenic lighthouse. In July, you can enjoy the annual Boulevard of Dreams Car Show. Look for special treasures as you walk the Erieau Boulevard Trail and enjoy the Art on the Boulevard event every August. Stay for dinner; fresh perch awaits you at Molly & OJs or grab a local craft beer and tasty meal at Bayside Brewing Co. You can watch the sunset with a delicious ice cream cone from Mariner's Cone & Shake or ErieView Ice Cream.

You can go fishing behind the Fire Hall or along the pier. The Erieau Marina is perfect for launching or docking your boat where you are close to the beach, restaurants, and a boat repair facility with accessories and supplies, including an LCBO. In July, you can catch prized fish, and earn bragging rights, in the Great Erie Salmon & Walleye Hunt. A vast array of wildlife is on offer at McGeachy Pond Conservation Area Trail and Erieau Marsh Trail - perfect for a walk along the water's edge.

On your way into Erieau take a hike on the Black Oak Trail and stop at Pardo's Berrie Farm to pick your own berries for dessert. Grab local produce at Greatview Orchards for a delicious salad and taste the sweetness of seasonal fruit at Delhaven Orchards. Erieau has a unique charm that keeps you coming back year after year to Chatham-Kent's resort port.
