I have lived in Ohio all of my life and had never been to Put-in-Bay until recently. Now that I have been, I would totally live there! Even though there are only 20 people who live on the island year round. Yep, you read that right. 20. I was shocked too! But still, it is a beautiful place to visit and stay in the “on” season. (Correction! There are about 200-300 year round residents…I’m not sure where the folks who told us 20 got their numbers…but still!) 🙂
Put-in-Bay has activities and events for your entire family to enjoy. There are so many places to stay and eat on the island, that I am sure you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect spots! We did not spend the night on Put-in-Bay since we needed to be home for something the next day, but I would love to sometime! I got a recommendation from a lady at The Butterfly House for a hotel. She said her family stays at The Bird’s Nest Resort when they come to visit her, and they really like it. I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know for sure!
We ate at Pasquale’s when we were there, and it was delicious! We took a couple of pictures, but they were after we were already eating and…well, not too attractive lol. But trust me, it was yummy!
Just walking around and driving around in your little golf cart is fun! The sites are so pretty. We enjoyed looking at all of the boats and dreaming of owning one! Or two…
Put-in-Bay island played a part in the War of 1812. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry and the men who died in the Battle of Lake Erie. If you like history, you can read more here: Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial.
