At the juncture of the Huron River and Lake Erie rests the community of Huron, Ohio, your destination for boating, birding, beach browsing, and all the revelations that come in-between to guide your life's direction. Come stay in one of the hotels in Huron, OH and bring your binoculars. The sight of birds wheeling in the blue might call to mind the words of Langston Hughes: "Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly."
Follow your whims beyond the threshold of Huron hotels to the Sheldon Marsh Nature Preserve, where waterfowl glide through the marshes and turtles bask on rocks. Live by their example and slow your pace as you wander the walkways. You never know what insights you might stumble on when the mind clears. With one of the rental cars in Huron, it's a short drive along the coast to the fishing pier, which juts into Lake Erie. Take a stroll along the stones, and you'll have a mile of meditative meandering past joggers and fishermen until you reach the Huron Lighthouse at the other end. You're in no hurry, so perch yourself on one of the jetty stones and observe the flocks of lake gulls dancing through the air out here in the midst of Lake Erie. If you can be patient, there's nothing like soaking in the sunset from the end of the pier when the daytime activity quiets down. When you hear the echoing sounds of a summertime concert in the Huron Boat Basin and Amphitheater calling you back, rejoin the landlubbers in town for a taste of Lake Erie perch at one of the restaurants overlooking the water before retiring in your choice of Huron, OH hotels.
Once you find inner peace in the calm environs of Huron, you're ready for an excursion into the city. Travelocity will help you locate Cleveland, OH hotels downtown so you can contemplate the differences between city and country life and wonder whether perhaps there is not so great a division between them as it seems.
