2024 Summer Update: Explorer Rest & Recreation

Welcome back, adventure seekers! As the sun begins to shine brighter and the days grow longer, we are thrilled to share some exciting updates from Explorer Rest & Recreation for the 2024 summer season. Our journey continues with new additions and enhanced experiences designed to make your stay even more memorable.

Reflecting on Our 2023 Milestones
Last summer, we proudly unveiled 21 meticulously designed rooms, including our ADA-compliant Explorer Executive Suite. Our King and custom Queen over Queen Bunk with a daybed quickly became a favorite, especially among sports travelers. These accommodations provided the perfect blend of comfort and convenience, setting a high standard for our guests.

Winter Work Brings New Experiences
While winter often brings a time of rest, we remained hard at work, determined to elevate our property. Our efforts have culminated in several exciting new additions for summer 2024:

The Explorer Ranch
Introducing the Explorer Ranch – a spacious three-room suite that comfortably sleeps up to eight people. With two bathrooms, this suite is perfect for families or groups seeking ample space and modern amenities. Whether you’re gathering for a reunion or just enjoying a getaway, the Explorer Ranch offers a unique blend of comfort and style.

The Explorer Suite – 3
We are also delighted to present three new Explorer Suites. Each suite features an open studio layout, equipped with a King bed and two Queen beds, comfortably sleeping up to six guests. The open design ensures a relaxed and versatile space, ideal for both short stays and extended vacations.

A Culinary Delight: Berardis Food Trailer
One of the most exciting additions to our property is the Berardis Food Trailer. With a rich history of over 75 years serving Sandusky, Ohio, and once delighting guests along the Cedar Point midway, Berardis is now part of the Explorer family. This partnership brings a beloved local favorite right to your doorstep.

A Menu to Savor
Our menu features the iconic Philly Cheesesteak in a variety of creative versions. Start your day with a Philly Cheesesteak breakfast sandwich, complete with eggs, or try our Philly Cheesesteak quesadilla for a flavorful twist. Of course, the classic Philly Cheesesteak on an 8′ hoagie bun remains a fan favorite, now enhanced with a new garlic peppercorn aioli sauce. What sets us apart? We offer breakfast items all day long, and our fries are fresh, hand-cut, and irresistibly delicious.

A Perfect Alignment
The Berardis brand and Explorer Rest & Recreation share a commitment to family-friendly dining and exceptional service. We’re excited about this collaboration and confident that it will enhance your overall experience at our property.

Looking Ahead
As we look forward to the rest of 2024 and beyond, our mission remains the same: to provide an exceptional, welcoming environment for all our guests. Whether you’re here for a sports event, Cedar Point, a family vacation, or a relaxing retreat, Explorer Rest & Recreation is dedicated to making your stay unforgettable.

We can’t wait to welcome you back and share in the joy of these new additions. Here’s to a summer full of exploration, relaxation, and delicious moments at Explorer Rest & Recreation!

Stay adventurous,
The Explorer Rest & Recreation Team
