Welcome to Pennsylvania's only port city. When you stay at Hampton Inn Erie-South, you'll be close to numerous things to do in Erie, PA, as well as many of our town's major companies and industries. We're also just a few minutes from the Bayfront Convention Center. Don't miss the U.S. Brig Niagara. The Niagara is the rebuilt flagship of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. You can see her (when she's not underway) at the Erie Maritime Museum. The many exhibits will fascinate, especially the “live fire” exhibit which shows the damage that Niagara's carronades can inflict.
Another tribute to the commodore is on Presque Isle State Park-you'll see Misery Bay and the Perry Monument. The park also offers beaches, swimming, biking and other outdoor activities to keep the whole family entertained. Visit Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park, located directly across Peach Street from the hotel, or Waldameer Park & Water World, for a fun afternoon amid tubes, slides and pools. Kids will also love ExpERIEnce Children's Museum and the fantastic Erie Zoo, just 3.5 miles from the hotel. Shop till you drop at Millcreek Mall Shopping Complex and spend the evening at Presque Isle Downs and Casino, offering games, entertainment and dining.
