    What Can I Do While I Enjoy My Free Weekend?

    Put-in-Bay, Ohio has countless activities to explore during your stay on including monuments, caves, wineries, and more!!! Here’s a list of Put-in-Bay attractions you can enjoy during your stay:

    Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial

    Perrys Monument Put in Bay

    More commonly known as “Perry’s Monument” is by far the most famous thing on South Bass Island. When open, you can take tours of the inside and you even get to take an elevator to the top for the best view of the entire island. The statue was built in honor of Oliver Hazard Perry to commemorate his victorious battle during the War of 1812 in “The Battle of Lake Erie”. You can find the monument as a staple of most logos for businesses on the island and many other places if you lookout for it.

    Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center

    Put-in-Bay Perry's Cave Gift Shop

    Perry’s Cave was originally discovered by Com. Oliver Hazard Perry and now includes tours of the cave, an antique car museum, mini-golf, maze fort, butterfly house, and other family-friendly activities! We definitely recommend playing mini-golf because it’s one of the best and most fun courses you can find. You can also check out the general store inside for some crazy geodes and gemstones, or mine them yourself outside!

    Put-in-Bay Winery

    The Put-in-Bay Winery is a place you definitely need to check out while you’re here. They have amazing wine tastings, a tour of the property, and awesome garden seating for you and your guests to enjoy. All of the grapes for their original wine are grown right here on Put-in-Bay Island! If you explore the island you can even find the vineyards, just make sure to be respectful and not touch them.

    You can also check out the visitors center for information on more activities, upcoming events like Pyrate Fest, Jet Ski Rentals at the State Park, concerts, reenactments at DeRivera Park, and more during your free bay vacation! Enter now to win your own getaway!!!

    Don’t forget to also check out the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society Museum where you can check out awesome historical artifacts and even buy some they have for sale!

    What makes Island Club so awesome and unique is the fact the during the week it’s really chill and family-friendly, but then once the weekend comes you can watch the families leave while the bachelorette parties roll in!!! They even have their own Put-in-Bay taxi service to take you to experience the awesome nightlife at all the bars like Mr. Ed’s and The MIST swim-up bar in downtown Put-in-Bay!

    How to Get Here When I Win

    There are two main Put-in-Bay ferries to get to the island, those being the Miller Ferry Line boats from Catawba or the passenger service only ferry the Jet Express from one it’s two docks in either Sandusky or Port Clinton. If you’re coming from Cleveland then the Miller Ferry dock is the closest and if you come from near Toledo then the Jet Express is most likely closer.
