Put-in-Bay summers zip by faster than a ten-foot sailfish, so buckle up and make plans for some great times at The Bay! Here’s a list of rewarding adventures you’ll want to enjoy on South Bass Island, whether you are a newcomer or an island mossback:
Absorb the Environment
From the lighthouse to East Point, ride your bicycle or drive a golf cart and stop at the numerous nature preserves. Nature delights in wondrous ways at each of the trails with flora, lake access, and pleasing scenes which remind us not all is mortar and bricks. Don’t miss the opportunity to scan Lake Erie islands from atop the iconic, 352 foot Perry’s Monument!
Immerse Yourself in History
With the Put-in-Bay Tour Train you will see the Island and experience illuminating narration about island cultural developments. Afterwards, visit the Lake Erie Islands Historical Museum where unique Americana delivers a stunning view of lives well-lived in previous ages.
Shop for Unique Gifts & Attire
Who doesn’t desire a home decorating refresher or spiffy new summer outfit? Island boutiques like Misty Bay, Lobster Trap, and Country House offer a welcoming and satisfying style update.
Treat Your Loved Ones to Drinks & Dinner
Put yourself in a happy vacation mode at any one of the spirited establishments along the waterfront, in the Village, or just a mile out of town! The Keys delivers festive waterfront dining, Red Moon is the Island’s only vintage speakeasy, and The Goat patio is the spot for a romantic evening.
