We climbed the tower the other day and just loved the views. Nice little gift shop also. It was built for the 2000 centennial and I think it is a real asset to Erie.

Its very nice beautiful view. Clean and smells okay. The only bad thing is if you have a big truck it hard to turn around. Gret fishing around the DOCK

Great views of the Bay in Erie. It was a little windy the day I was there but it was still a magnificent view. The first Sunday of every month they allow you to go up for not cost.

Best place to get a view of Erie and the lake and Presque Isle State Park. It is an affordable attraction.

Definitely a cool place to visit especially at sunset. Great view of the lake and close to some good restaurants.

Parking midweek was easy to find walk along the pier for water views. You can choose to climb the stairs to the top but it is very high, better to give $4 for an. Elevator ride unless you enjoy about twenty story's of steps

We originally were going to go up in the lighthouse at Presque Isle. The cost for this tower was actually cheaper (around $14 for 4 persons) than the lighthouse so we waited to do this. The central location of the tower allowed us to get...More

The Port of Erie Bicentennial Tower provides amazing views over the port as well into the downtown area the rises up a gentle slope from the port. There's a small charge ($2) to walk up the stairs to the top, and just a few dollars...More
