This corridor includes some of the most family-friendly activities on the whole island. Kimberly’s Carousel is pretty much next door as is the Put-in-Bay Candy Bar and DeRivera Park.
Kimberly’s Carousel is an iconic symbol of the island. Select from a variety of brightly colored animals and ride around this vintage carousel as joyous music spills into the streets. The favorite here is definitely Petey the Perch.
The Put-in-Bay Candy Bar makes for a perfect spot after racing at the Raceway and enjoying a ride on the carousel. They sell everything from classic candies to contemporary confections. Grab a cone of one of their delicious ice creams and head out onto the patio to take in the sights of downtown.
