View Denzil & Brenda Eastern US Travels on Vanabout's travel map.

Spent the night at East Harbor State Park near Sandusky, Ohio. Didn't know that Ohio has Islands? Decided to visit all 5 Great Lakes (Ontario; Erie; Huron; Michigan; Superior). Denzil had idea to take a little water sample from each. Ontario was crystal clear. Lake Erie...suspended particles, yuck. in 1960's Cleveland was famous for Lake that drained into Lake Erie caught on fire - several times - due to pollution. The EPA helped, but lately it's back to highly polluted again. A big red sign.. Don't touch the water. Right on the beach..

Denzil loves music and wanted to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We spent almost the whole day there. It has history of rock, artists, and info on each year's inductees into Hall of Fame. The bus outside of building belonged to Johnny Cash. Inside was an amazing theatre with excellent speakers that they played a video about their top performances of inductees.

Nice location in Cleveland, downtown, near Lake Erie, and Museums. The Cleveland Indians Baseball team was also playing as we left town.

KOA's Island formerly owned by GE

We decided at the last minute to try to see all 5 Great lakes. So we had to drive a few hrs out of the way to see Lake Ontario. It's in way NW NY and Canada mostly. Spent the night after the long drive on a island that is part of 1,000 Islands very close to Canada. The island, Association Island, used to be owned by the big Company, GE, but they donated it to the YMCA in the 1970's and the Y sold it to KOA thereafter. Nicest KOA we've seen.
Boat dock, Pool, Big recreation area for weddings, etc. Cabins, Apartments, and permanent residents. I think it said 300 campsites. Luckily only around 50 were taken when we were there so it was lovely.

About halfway from upstate NY to Cleveland, so we stopped in Niagara Falls. Have seen it before. but it is always amazing to see how fast the water flows. And how many people love to visit there.
