While Gannon’s setting is urban, the great outdoors are just a short distance away. Presque Isle, the sandy peninsula that extends into Lake Erie, is one of the most aesthetic places that you’ll find close to campus. Not only does PI have 13 beaches, it’s also a great place to go biking, rollerblading, boating and hiking.

Aside from recreational activities, Presque Isle is home to Sara’s, a student fave. One of Sara’s most popular foods is the orange-twist ice cream cone. It’s a sweet treat after a day at the beach.

Whether you’re looking to exercise and explore outside of downtown or just need somewhere to hang out when the weather’s nice, Presque Isle is the place to be.
