South Bass Island Lighthouse
Ranked #8 of 34 things to do in Put in Bay
Attraction details
Reviewed July 15, 2014

The plaque on the grounds gave a good amount of info, on the lighthouse, the main dislike here is there was NO tour of the inside of the lighthouse to see how the lighthouse keeper lived.

The light tower itself is open Mondays and Tuesdays and well worth the paltry fee. We wish the main part of the building (the lightkeeper's living quarters) were also open, but we were told that area is reserved for use by VIPs. Open it all up on a daily schedule so history buffs can enjoy the full experience.

we drove our golf cart to the lighthouse it was okay, it did not fascinate me I guess my interest for these type of things was not there, but to just travel this little island on your cart was a day worth of wonder and a little bit of an inside site of how the island came to be.

Walking up the 45 steps to the top of the lighthouse is worth the time. The view is beautiful and the student tour guide was very knowledgeable about the lighthouse history.
