GO-HIO | Cleveland summer adventures: Jet ski experience in Lake Erie

Explore the shores of Lake Erie in style.

CLEVELAND — Lake Erie is one of the best and most beautiful aspects of Cleveland, but it can also be the most fun -- especially when a jet ski is involved!

With 871 miles of shoreline, Lake Erie is Northeast Ohio's aquatic playpen. Rico Blanco found that to be true when he moved to Cleveland from Puerto Rico in 2011. Upon his arrival to the lakeshore, he also brought his love of jet skiing. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic he opened Rico's Rental, designed to equip Clevelanders with their adrenaline fix on the water. 

For $150 an hour, you can tour the waters of Lake Erie by taking in the sights of downtown, the Cuyahoga River, FirstEnergy Stadium, up to Lakewood and even Rocky River.

3News' Austin Love took the trip with Blanco and found out that money may not be able to buy happiness -- but it can get you on a jet ski, which is basically the same thing.
