Our recent trip (my first) to Small Bass Island, home of Put-In-Bay exceeded my expectations for enjoyment! There were plenty of golf carts and bicycles to rent (we elected to leave our car on the mainland of Ohio), restaurants and pubs in which to eat and drink, shops to look for unique gifts and mementos and places of interest encouraging activities and exploring . It really seemed like the "Key West" of Ohio! It was clean, well designed and welcoming. The individuals in the various service positions (wait staff, hosts, bartenders and cashiers) were all friendly, professional and well-trained. I was also happy to see many families participating in the various attractions there as well.

We try to make it to Put-in-Bay every summer! Take Miller's Ferry from Catawba Point, rent a golf cart and spend the day visiting the many shops and eateries in the island. Stop to have a drink at the Round Bar and Mojito Bay and listen to the entertainment.

Fun driving around in a golf cart.Careful renting, many are missing windshields and are out of alignment. Lots of great restaurants. Beaches are all rocky. Glacial grooves can be seen in the state park camp grounds. World’s largest geode is at Crystal Cave. International Peace Memorial is beautiful.

If you are going for the day- I highly recommend that you read the review from Wayfairing-Man on November 3, 2018. We did as he suggested and had a great day. A couple of notes- 1) Millers Ferry is a great way to go. You can buy tickets on line if you are going during a busy time or save the service fee and buy at the dock if things are quieter. 2) Check prices on the golf carts. Between the coupon on the Miller's Ferry website and by calling around, we saved about $20 on a one day rental. 3) There is quite a bit open and the places that are open are doing a decent job keeping things distanced and clean.
