Local Reviews

restaurants nearby and bank nice park in city just need to get drunks oyt of parks I don't know anything about it

I like that those is a small lake at the end of the street. Which could be very relaxing but also sometime it can stacked new comer that do not live in the area.

Our side street is like a little neighborhood inside itself. Everyone gets along and talks often when outside. We all watch out for one another.

There is the Oakwood Cafe which is famous for their Irish decor and Reubens. There is also Panos which is a local Greek restaurant that serves delicious pies.

Anywhere with my family. I like to visit parks and restaurants the beach is beautiful . I love going all around to places

Lots of ethnic backgrounds. There is one large meat market, butcher that a lot of people in the county come to and buy meats from. Best butcher shop for miles and miles. I like going to friends to get out of the neighborhood.

Living in Erie, PA

Erie saw its beginning in 1795 after the Erie Triangle Purchase and grew quickly since it is the state's only lake port city. The city got its name after the Eriez Native Americans and literally means "raccoon." According to the city's website, Field & Stream Magazine name Erie one of the top family-friendly fishing spots in the country, due to its lakefront location. A blue-collar community, one-fourth of the jobs in this city are in manufacturing, with General Electric Transportation Systems - one of the biggest locomotive-building industry leaders in the country - being the city's biggest employer. Despite having a population of more than 101,000 residents, according to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau, the city still retains a small-town atmosphere than many families appreciate. 

Erie Attractions and Special Events
