Erie County

Situated on the shores of Lake Erie, Erie County combines a relaxed lakeside atmosphere with a business and entrepreneurial community where manufacturing and hospitality thrive. Two major education institutions support workforce readiness in healthcare, aerospace, technology, industry, and skilled trades. The county is also a hub for travel and tourism, with the town of Sandusky dubbed a “best coastal small town” by USA Today readers. This growing county is on two major interstates, an hour from two international airports, has abundant mainline rail service, and three ports on the St. Lawrence Seaway.
