Put-in-Bay is only 20 minutes away from the mainland by ferry boat, and another 30 minutes from local hotspot Cedar Point. Many guests combine both experiences into their summer vacation trip. There’s a lot to do in the area – just click on the ideas below to find your adventure.

Getting Around

Renting a golf cart is the most fun and most popular way to get around Put-in-Bay. It is by far the biggest featured things to do, next to the Perry’s Monument. The island is small so it just asks to be traveled by golf cart! Golf carts are fun for both kids and adults and are a unique way to get around. You just can’t do that in a regular city! For late night, we recommend taxi rides instead, especially if you visit our local pubs.

Wineries

Put-in-Bay has two wineries on the island: Heinemans Winery and The Put-in-Bay Winery. South Bass Island has a strong history of winemaking going back hundreds of years. Situated on the historic Doller Estate, The Put-in-Bay Winery looks out over the downtown harbor while guests sit on the patio sampling the world-class wines. They offer a tasting tour of the estate, individual wine samples, wine flights, glasses and even bottles of wine to take home! You can even play some cornhole while you relax!

Endless Attractions

From one end of the island to the other, visitors will find one of our featured things to do. From the South Bass Island Lighthouse on one end, to Massies East Point Preserve on the other. And nestled in the middle, you can’t miss the putt-putt, cave tours, and Butterfly House. Kids have a blast at Put-in-Bay
