Erie is a city situated in the northwestern region of the state of Pennsylvania, United States. It was named after the Native American tribe and the lake they resided along its southern coast. With a population of 102,000 the city of Erie is the 4th biggest city in the state. The Metropolitan Area comprises roughly 280,000 people. The Urbanized Area population is roughly 195,000. The city of Erie forms the seat of government for Erie County.

The city of Erie is quite close to the major metro areas of Buffalo, New York, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Cleveland, Ohio. The economy is heavily dependent upon manufacturing, even if it used to be a prime place for heavy industry. Higher education, healthcare and tourism are emerging as greater driving factors of the economy. Presque Isle State Park is visited by millions each year for water recreation. There are other attractions like for example a horse racetrack and a casino which have been named for the state park.

Erie was established during 1795. It was first settled by both English and French settlers. Immediately after, Erie became a significant port that focused at first on the salt trade. In 1813, amongst the proudest historical moments took place within the city of Erie when Commodore Oliver Perry, whose majority of ships was constructed within Erie, defeated the British in the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of the year 1812.

The city of Erie emerged as a maritime hub and ultimately became a railroad hub during the westward expansion of America. Erie had become a large industrial hub by the 20th century. The manufacturing focus was mostly on steel and iron. Today, the city of Erie has grown to attract a more diverse mix of mid-sized industries. Like for instance, small plastic and steel plants have emerged and become driving forces within the city's economy. The tourism sector has largely grown in recent years as well.

The city of Erie acts as a significant access point to the Saint Lawrence Seaway, Lake Erie and the Great Lakes for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The city boasts several attractions and places of interest within the city of Erie for culture and recreation. For example, the Erie Children's Museum specializes in tourists between the ages of 2 and 12 and offers a huge variety of interactive displays in the areas of the humanities and science. The Erie Art Museum is located in a former U.S. Customs House. It offers a wealth of changing art exhibits featuring much on folk art and contemporary art.
