The lakefront path has been a Lakeside tradition for more than 140 years.

This special shoreline path is a place where sunsets are admired, worship takes place, healing begins, a marriage proposal is made, weddings are celebrated, fireworks delight, children share stories and Lakesiders engage in conversation.

The lakefront path is special and unique to each Lakesider. Everyone can tell a story about why it is so important and what it means to them. Through these stories, we understand how it serves to transform the lives of each Lakesider, whether visiting for a day, week or the entire summer. Obviously, it showcases the most dramatic view of Lake Erie where water, islands, skies and stars collide in a masterpiece of nature.

As part of this past year’s Lakeside Fund, Lakeside Chautauqua will enhance the lakefront path in an effort to claim and promote the title of being Ohio’s Most Beautiful Mile.   Read More
