What's nearby?

PictureFor those of you going to the OGS Conference at Kalahari in Sandusky, Ohio, I have put together a list of nearby places that you might like to visit in case of an emergency. Forgot something, need batteries, just want to grab a burger or a shake.

First of all, Cedar Point is not that far away. It isn't open yet but it could be an excuse to travel to the shores of Lake Erie to see that beautiful blue water. Lake Erie is a rather treacherous lake because it is so shallow. To me shallow is 2 feet. It's a little bit more on Lake Erie but it is well known by local boaters as the lake where the weather can change in an instant. 

If you are staying at Kalahari, there are several good restaurants and lounges that serve everything from steaks to pizza. Each room has a refrigerator and a microwave if you need to be a little frugal. You can have breakfast and lunch in your room and then splurge on dinner. If you are looking for groceries Kroger, Meijer, and Walmart are only a few minutes away.

If you are staying in one of the nearby hotels you will find a number of restaurants nearby. Appleby's, Chili's, Olive Garden, Panera Bread, McDonald's, Wendy's, and Steak and Shake are just a few. 

If you need supplies you will find Staples and Best Buy. Also, the Sandusky Mall is about 3 miles north on Milan Rd. Here you will find Target, Penney's, Macy's, and Elder-Beerman plus your usual mall stores.

Everything is north of Kalahari on Milan Road with the exception of Kroger which is to the west on Perkins Road (crosses Milan).
