Conneaut

Ohio's Gateway

In 1796, Moses Cleaveland set up camp with his team at the mouth of the Conneaut River to begin surveying lands for the Connecticut Western Reserve.  A historical marker can be found near the Pennsylvania line on East Main Street (route 20).  Within a few decades, Conneaut's port was bustling with activity and the town was known for building some of the best ships on the Great Lakes.  

Today, the waterfront continues to be a draw.  Conneaut Township Park boasts the largest beach in the county and is home to a retro-modern lighthouse.  It is one of the few places in the country where visitors can drive their vehicle out onto the beach.  Because of migration patterns and the unique mudflats created by the break wall, Conneaut finds itself a stopping point for many rare bird species.  The deep water port continues to bustle as it did over 200 years ago with commercial and recreational boats, alike.  

Conneaut is Ohio's most northeast corner and is the entrance for those travelling the Route 90 corridor from Buffalo and Erie.  Visitors come from near and far for a quiet, Northshore escape.  Conneaut Creek is considered the #1 location in the world for steelhead fishing.  Each year in August, this sleepy little town transforms and hosts the second-largest D-Day reenactment in the world.  This living history event is free and is made memorable by over 3,000 reenactors who are in character all weekend.
