We toured the Butterfly House, gift shops at Perry's Cave and there was a loose beagle mix dog wandering around behind us, keeping its distance, skittish. We went to the Perry's Cave gift shop and as we were leaving the shop, the dog was in...More

It's a great place to stop at least once when you visit Put in Bay. It's chilly inside the cave, so I would recommend bringing a jacket. Also, it's very short and a bit crowded, so just make sure to keep that in mind if...More

Perry's Cave is an interesting local historic site. Our tour guide was particularly knowledgeable, although I am not sure if all the tour guides are as good as ours. Visitors must keep in mind this is not a huge cave and not the most grand,...More

We booked this cave with some other fun things at the cave area. It was neat to see and very informational. But it is one of those things once you see it one time you really don't need to see it again.

I have been to many caves before. This was by far the worst. The stairs leading down were wet and narrow. And also the tour was literally 20 steps and done. Most caves tours have a long walk and informative talks.. hated it.. save your...More
