Erie

Erie

More than one-quarter of Erie residents' paychecks come from manufacturing, including those of the region's skillful toolmakers, who maintain one of their industry's highest concentrations in the United States.

Staying true to its historic stake in transportation, Erie continues to roll out many of America's most powerful diesel-electric locomotives from GE Transportation Systems, the region's largest employer. Meanwhile, to power a spirit of innovation, Erie has become active in the research and production of biofuels.

The city also attracts tourists to the gem that is Lake Erie. Few cities in America are as famous for swimming. Presque Isle State Park extends from the city shores and includes 7 miles of beaches.  People work hard in Erie, but they also have space to sun in the sand, take a dip, cast a rod, watch for birds, or launch a boat for open waters.
