Given the current circumstances of covid-19, our team with the Put-in-Bay Island Guide Facebook page got creative and took its 30,000 followers for a birds eye view of the Lake Erie Islands. The helicopter tour takes off from the Put-in-Bay airport flying over the Put-in-Bay Condos, Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial and many other Put-in-Bay attractions.
You’ll see how golf cart rentals fill the streets and visitors wander the historic village.
The Helicopter makes a turn to go over downtown Put-in-Bay. From the tour, you can see the iconic Round House bar, The Boardwalk, DeRivera Park, Mr. Ed’s and more. You’ll even fly over both the Miller Ferry and Jet Express docks.
As the Island Guide Facebook flyover continues above the South Bass Island State Park, you’ll have an amazing view of Catawba Island, the Sandusky area and much more!
Other Things to Do on Put-in-Bay As Seen from the Air
Put-in-Bay is home to countless of attractions. First, consider a golf cart rental to get around on island time! If you and your group are into water-sports, you should definitely look into jet ski, kayak and other water sport rentals at the South Bass Island State Park. The South Bass Island State Park is arguably the best place to watch the sunset in the entire mid-west!
Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial is a great place to learn all about the history of the island. Perry’s monument commemorates the leadership of Oliver Hazard Perry in the War of 1812 as well as the Battle of Lake Erie.
We even have a golf course on our island for all those incredibly average golfers that want a taste of the PGA tour. The Island is home two different wineries: The Put-in-Bay Winery and the Heineman winery which both share a unique history.
In addition to the wineries the island has two caves. Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center is a great place to bring the family to. Once there, you’ll have cave tours, mini golf, mazes, the butterfly house and even an antique car museum!
