Walking Around Put-in-Bay
After you purchase an ice cream from DJ’s, you can relax on their patio or take a stroll through the streets of downtown Put-in-Bay. There is always so much to see especially in the summers. Families and groups of revelers parade through the streets having the best summers ever!
DeRivera Park is right next to DJ’s. This beautiful park includes playgrounds for kids of all ages, picnic tables, a lovely gazebo, and beautiful walking paths. This is also where you’ll find the public restrooms and lockers in case you need to store something while you walk.
Kimberly’s Carousel is also a centerpiece of downtown Put-in-Bay. This vintage ride was built by the iconic amusement park designer Allan Herschell over 100 years ago. Renovated in the 1980’s, it looks much the same as it did back then. Take a spin on one of the delightfully hand painted animals. Petey the Perch is definitely the favorite around these parts.
