Sandusky Ohio's downtown area is a diamond in the rough. It's located on the lake giving it a certain charm especially in the warmer months.
To date downtown is still being revitalized, and in my opinion is ripe for investment opportunity. If you take a walk around you will find vacant buildings with unique features that are rarely found in new construction. Bringing old buildings up to code is not always cheap but the views and lifestyle you would be creating can certainly out weigh any cost.
The city is also helping out by hosting events such as "the art walk", "party at the plaza", and the farmers market.
I suggest taking a walk around on a nice summer day to see what I am talking about. More to come about the individual features later...
