What to do on the Island
Enjoy iconic Put-in-Bay attractions like Perry’s Cave and Family Fun Center as well as Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial. Some great family fun happens during “Pyrate Fest” when pirates come and do life-like reenactments in front of he monument, then head to DeRivera Park across from the Jet Express downtown where pirates have taken over! There you’ll find hunts for buried treasure, costumes and lots of more fun for the kids. Who said PIB isn’t family friendly?
You can also head to PIB for the nightlife. Downtown Put in Bay is full of some of the best bars in the world such as Mr.Ed’s, The Roundhouse, and other great Bay restaurants and bars, plus Joe’s Bar on Catawba Ave! You’ll find bachelorette parties, swim up bars, and awesome Put-in-Bay Resorts.
You can go to the visitors center to ask about upcoming events, island guides, and other information. You can find the Lake Erie Islands Historical Society for stories about Oliver Hazard Perry, the Battle of Lake Erie, and the Historical Museum.
