    Cedar Point, located just outside of Sandusky about 1 1/2 hours' drive from downtown Cleveland, is consistently rated as one of America's favorite amusement parks. The 364-acre park is home to 18 roller coasters, a white sand beach, a classic merry-go-round, four children's areas and a plethora of shops, food stands, and exciting rides.

    Tickets are available from Cedar Point—online, by mail, by phone, or in person at the attraction's onsite ticket office (open seasonally). However, several discounts are available, both from the park itself and from other area retailers.

    Cedar Point opens the first weekend of May and stays open on weekends through Halloween.
