About Put-in-Bay Things To Do
Kids, adults, seniors, and everyone in between will find their own special attraction on South Bass Island. One of the best parts of it all is that all the attractions are located on an island! Some say one of the best attractions is riding the Put-in-Bay ferry boats like the miller ferry and the Jet Express that travel across Lake Erie from their ports in Catawba and Port Clinton. Families and groups love the freedom to rent a Put-in-Bay golf cart during their visit and cruise the island attractions at their own leisurely pace. Put-in-Bay is one of the few vacation destinations where you can drive a golf cart legally on the road just like a car! If you are not interested in a put-in-bay golf cart rental, our Put-in-Bay taxis are a great alternative to get around.
Although the island is mostly known for its nightlife one main attraction on the island is Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial in honor of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. Learn about the rich history on the island and watch the Lake Erie islands historical society perform a live reenactment of the war of 1812 and The Battle of Lake Erie.
Put-in-bay events like Pyrate Fest and Bash at the Bay run all summer long and keep the island active and exciting (not that we need any help in that department). Be sure to follow our social media pages and check back on our website for any upcoming events during your stay.
Fun Put-in-Bay attractions are scattered around the island, like The South Bass Island Lighthouse, a golf course, and Perry’s Cave which is a great family fun center. Perry’s Cave offers, you guessed it, a cave on the island which you can take a tour of. At Perry’s Cave, there is also mini-golf, the butterfly house, a maze, rock climbing, and more!
Along with the numerous things to do on the island, the great thing about being surrounded by water is all the fun water activities! Boaters come from all across Ohio and dock their boats at one of our marinas. You can also Jet ski, kayak, and parasail.
About Put-in-Bay Lodging
