Besides DeRivera Park and the Monument, The Keys is literally right next door! Before or after grabbing a treat at Dairy Isle head to The Keys for an adult beverage with an amazing view.
The Keys specializes in tropical tastes, especially that Florida favorite, the mojito. Lola’s at The Keys also serves up Fat Tuesday brand frozen cocktails. This is a gorgeous spot to grab a glass and take in the beautiful lake views.
Just down Hartford Avenue is the Boathouse Bar and Grill. Famed for their killer lineup of live music, the Boathouse is a perfect gathering place, especially after dark. They serve up very strong cocktails and the party goes into the wee hours.
For something for the whole family, take a spin on Kimberly’s Carousel, right across the street from the Boathouse. This vintage ride is one of the few left in American and definitely a Put-in-Bay tradition. Come take a spin then head to Dairy Isle for a banana split!
