20 years ago, the man that would become my husband and I traveled to Lake Erie on our first date where we enjoyed a beautiful day of sun and fun at Put-in-Bay. That became the first of many trips to the shores and islands of Lake Erie where we enjoyed local entertainers such as Pat Dailey sing his Island signature song, 'Put-in-Bay' at The Beer Barrel, the famous bar that went into the Guinness Book of Records as 'The World's Longest Bar' and Mike 'Mad Dog' Adams with his unique brand of music and comedy. While we enjoyed life on the island, our family grew to include two beautiful daughters who have learned to enjoy the beach just as much as us and we stayed mainland with our first vacation rental. We are sure you too will enjoy your visit to the Lake Erie Shores & Islands.
With a mainland area that spans from Vermilion, Ohio to Genoa, Ohio and inland, plus Kelleys, Middle Bass and South Bass islands, the Lake Erie Shores & Islands boasts more than 150 miles of freshwater coastline and some of the greatest attractions around including Cedar Point amusement park which offers more rides and roller coasters than any other park on the planet, and has been voted 'Best Amusement Park in the World' for ten years in a row by Amusement Today readers.
Islands have always been an appealing escape, and Ohio’s Lake Erie Islands are no exception. Middle Bass Island has a tranquil atmosphere and refreshing natural landscape that lures visitors to its shore for carefree, relaxing getaways; conversely, South Bass Island, often referred to by its village name Put-in-Bay, offers unparalleled adventure around every corner. Kelleys Island, the largest of the three, offers a combination of the exquisite natural beauty with a milder blend of adventure and attractions.
