A Day at the Bay, By Amanda Downey
Before your Put-in-Bay visit begins, a lovely ride on the Miller Ferry or The Jet Express will be in order. Both allow you to take in the scenic views of the surrounding islands and our beautiful great lake. Already your adventure has begun! Step onto the island and immediately feel the beauty and enlivening atmosphere . . . Whether you have come here for a weekend visit to enjoy some “island time,” or come to live it up for the day, South Bass Island has something for everyone to enjoy. Journey around the island and notice local gift shops, restaurants and bars.
Be sure to enjoy tourist attractions like Perry’s Monument and International Peace Memorial, Perry’s Cave Family Fun Center, The Butterfly House, Heinemans Winery, Adventure Bay, Put in Bay Lighthouse, Put in Bay Winery, and the lovely South Bass Island State Park with a grand view of Lake Erie.
Renting a golf cart or bicycle is a splendid idea, or you may prefer the bus, taxi, and tour-train services. While on the island, be sure to say hello and interact with locals to learn about island living!
