Whether you are on-island for your summer get-away, contemplating a Lake Erie day trip, or live here and want to get out of the house, multiple Put-in-Bay attractions can enliven what may appear to be a dreary day.
Next up, take a brief walk with umbrella in hand (or in your golf cart) and sing along the way to Perry’s Victory for a look at their book selections. Local authors, Lake Erie history, and National Park Service publications will open your mind to new dimensions.
Well then, navigate your way through the Village and make a stop behind Town Hall to peruse the bountiful supply of heritage thrift shop items at the Resale Shop. Little treasures for all ages available at the best bargain prices!
Next, travel toward the south side of the Island to find the Lake Erie Islands Nature and Wildlife Center, located between Put-in Bay and Catawba Roads, down the street from the State Park and Joe’s Bar. Flora, fauna, and land exhibits will give you a fresh way to understand the island environment.
By now you’re ready for a treat! [It’s not evening raining that hard, is it?] Make your heading back north on Catawba Avenue and pull into the parking area for the Chocolate Cafe & Museum. Enjoy the historical display and then indulge in your favorite caffeinated beverage or a double-scoop ice cream in a waffle cone: Mmmm-good!
