A trip to Put-in-Bay, also known as the “Key West of the North”, isn’t complete unless you rent a golf cart. After disembarking from the Jet Express ferry ($33 pp round-trip) from Port Clinton, our first stop was to pick up our ride. We didn’t reserve a cart ahead of time, but they had plenty. Splitting the $80 day rental fee between four of us, made it quite affordable.
Seated on the back…taking photographs while we were racing along was fun…
We didn’t encounter any crazy drivers…just a few traffic jams.
Sherry was our trusty chauffeur most of the time. I enjoyed taking photographs of the passing scenery and we made frequent stops to enjoy a beautiful view, have a drink at a cool venue, and of course, for lunch and dinner.
South Bass Island, where Put-in-Bay is located, is only 2 by 4 miles and with over 2 million people visiting annually (typically between May and September), the people watching and action is phenomenal (you’ll see more of that in my next post)!
I don’t know about you, but there’s something about a Merry-go-Round that draws me to them. You can take a ride back in time for $1.50 on Kimberly’s Carousel, dating back to 1917, and bring back some of your sweet summer time childhood memories!
Although, when you look closely, the horses do have a rather frightening expression!
We stopped for lunch at The Boardwalk and I took a walk around while we waited for our food. The views were spectacular!
Back in the golf cart, Shari took us for a ride and I do believe she felt like she was 10 years old again! She was giggling and totally enjoying herself!
Put in Bay Winery’s exterior is simple, yet perfect!
I think everyone needs a wine bottle tree in their yard!
A great start to the 2nd day of our annual Girls’ weekend!
