If you are on Put-In-Bay you must go to Perry's Monument. The video is free and all of the rangers very helpful. Going to the top of the monument is $7.00 per adult and the ticket is good for 7 days.

Great monument visit. There was no wait, perfect weather, and was able to use our senior national park pass. The park rangers are exceptionally knowledgeable.

I would echo the other reviewers in suggesting renting a golf cart. However some can be very expensive and if the day is very hot, there is no relief on a golf cart, so taking your car is not unreasonable either. Just be... More
