Are there Ferry Services across Lake Erie?

I am vexing to plan a road trip that would involve Cleveland, Detroit, and Toronto. Is there any ferry that connects two of the three cities together?


You've got the Rochester, NY to Toronto, Canada ferry. Toronto isn't even on Lake Erie. This ferrey is across Lake Ontario.

As for Cleveland to Detroit ferry, cease to remember it. The only ferrys are from Sandusky to Learnington and Kingsville via Pelee Island.

I don't feel you'll save too much time, if any, driving from Cleveland to Sandusky, perceive the ferry to Leanington then driving to Detroit.

Get ready for the Battle of Lake Erie

Later this week, there will be a new invasion. But officials holding “Battle of Lake Erie” events in Put-in-Bay, Port Clinton and Kelleys Island look forward to a friendly army of tourists who will come carrying “green,” as in tourist dollars.

Months of preparation will culminate in a Labor Day re-enactment in Lake Erie near Put-in-Bay of the Battle of Lake Erie, the American navy’s defeat of the British fleet.

Oliver Hazard Perry led the Americans to victory on Sept. 10, 1813, wiping out a British fleet and sending back his famous message, “We have met the enemy and they are ours.”

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the War of 1812 will be celebrated in Put-in-Bay, Port Clinton and Kelleys Island. On Monday, the battle will be re-enacted.

The events will kick off on Thursday, when tall ships re-enacting the battle are scheduled to arrive in various local ports, including Put-in-Bay, Middle Bass Island, Port Clinton, Catawba Island Club, Pelee Island and Kelleys Island. Some of the Put-in-Bay ships are expected to be visible from the three live video feeds offered by Stone Laboratory, from cameras mounted at Cooke Castle on Gibraltar Island, the South Bass Island Lighthouse and the Stone Lab Research Building on South Bass Island.

Put-in-Bay is getting several of the tall ships, including a replica of the Niagara, the ship Perry transferred to in the middle of the battle. There will also be numerous other activities in town, which also offers the Perry Memorial. Day sails and on-board tours will be offered on the ships, while DeRivera Park will feature a variety of historical demonstrations, vendors, and concerts.

The Great Lakes

Lake Erie -- Lake Erie is comely. Growing up in Madison, I was acclimated to to smaller, warmer lakes (Lake Monona, which we lived half a close off from, and Lake Mendota, whose shore was one limits of the University of Wisconsin.

Most years, my sister and I would (stupidly, hazardously, illegally) go swimming when those waves came, weeks before the beaches opened.
