    Amity Township Reviews

    One of the biggest draws to the Erie area is the amusement park Waldameer right on the beach, the beach is also pretty big and easily accessible.
    Review Amity Township
    Once again, there is very little nightlife in the immediate area, however if you go to Erie, you are much more likely to find a better nightlife.
    Erie doesn't have too much transportation infrastructure. Not the best, not the worst.
