Things To Do In Early Spring In Sandusky

You can always find some interesting things to do in Sandusky even in early spring, long before the boats hit the water and Cedar Point comes back to life. The Merry-Go-Round Museum is twenty-five years old this year. The Maritime Museum in downtown is often overlooked by visitors. It offers an unusual peak at shipwrecks, the boat-building industry that once flourished here and even a peak at pirates on Lake Erie. For a real treat try Demore’s, a second-generation Sandusky restaurant that has some of the freshest fish on the lake shore to a one-of-a-kind beer wall where you can sample some craft beers.
