A big THANK YOU to the Folks at Put-In-Bay for givin me tickets to check out their awesome island, so I could share my experience with you. Thank you Miller Ferry, E’s Golf Cart Rental and Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center for this great family trip.
Put-In-Bay (really called South Bass Island), is located just West of Sandusky, Ohio, off of North Highway 53. Well, then you have to take a ferry to the island, but that is the starting point for your fun!
Before you go – check out what is happening on the island to plan your visit. There is always something fun happening on the island, so you will have to come back and visit often. Perfect for a weekend get-a-way, girl’s weekend and family fun.
To the right of this building, is the ticket booth, where you buy your tickets to get on the ferry. While waiting for the ferry, you can shop in the gift shop or hit it up on your way out!
Get a Cart! – You can bring your vehicle to the Island, but most people travel via golf cart. Traveling via golf cart is for those who want to relax and have a slower pace to enjoy your stay. You can contact E’s Golf Cart and reserve a golf cart, so one is waiting for you when you get there. E’s is about 50 yards on the right from the dock once you get up the hill. It’s also on the way to all the fun stuff in town! Be sure to ask how to put the cart in reverse!
We stopped in to Perry’s Cave and enjoyed playing mini golf. You can count your strokes if you want, or not. We just played for fun and didn’t count our strokes.
The kids enjoyed exploring and seeing the squirrel. There is also a maze there and the kids enjoyed exploring that and figuring how to get out.
Our favorite was the butterfly house.
In talking to one of the workers, they have new butterflies shipped in every month through October, so you will see butterflies. This was my kid’s favorite as we love nature and butterflies.
It was explained to the kids they could look, but not touch the butterflies. We were able to get very close to the butterflies and there were plenty of butterflies and various varieties to see.
There is lots to see and do at Put-In-Bay. Lots of shopping downtown and restaurants to choose from.
We ended our day when the clouds started to turn gray and we heard a big storm was coming.
There was so much more to see! There are many things to do, chocolate factory, crystal caves, winery, antique car museum and more!
Where will you go first on your visit to Put-In-Bay?
