Put in Bay, Ohio, is a great place to enjoy, live, visit, or invest in. From its variety of attractions, enormous popularity, and quiet winter months, to the varied, affordable real estate, summer events, and beauty, this Lake Erie island has something for everyone! Young to old, close to far, couples to groups.
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 that travel across Lake Erie from their ports in Catawba and Port Clinton. Put-in-Bay is one of the few places where you can drive a golf cart legally on the road just like a car!
