It is easy to enjoy an entire day here or make several visits while staying on the island. The whole centers built around Perry’s Cave, a limestone cave with an underground lake. The ecology of Put-in-Bay is fascinating and unique, and Perry’s Cave shows off how entertaining this little island is. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry discovered the cave in 1813, where it proved helpful in quenching his troops’ thirst when they needed it the most. A tour of Perry’s Cave is a must before or after a run through Fort Amazen.

DanDee’s Snack Shack keeps visitors fed with delicious treats like mac ’n cheese bites, funnel fries, and lots of ice cream treats to cool you down.

Along with Fort Amazen and Perry’s Cave, compete with friends at the War of 18 Holes Mini Golf, perhaps the most unique course you’ve ever seen. The Antique Car Museum fascinates the history buffs in the family.

The Butterfly House is always an excellent choice when you need some peace and quiet. This gorgeous aviary contains hundreds of flitting butterflies with lovely music. Make sure to take a trip to the gift shop before you leave!
