Put-In Bay Stay

When Sarah and I were planning our drive back to Omaha, we wanted to make it like a little road trip.  We were both fairly stressed with life, and we just wanted a little break.  Ohio seemed like a good first day break location, but I have never hear someone say,"You're going through Ohio?  You have to stop in (insert city name) and see _______!!!"  Have you?  So on a whim I looked up B&Bs and found Put-In Bay!

Put-In Bay (not the island pictured above) has 130 inhabitants and is less than two square miles.  Everyone bikes around or rides golf carts.  It seems like such a magical place, as small islands do!  You would never guess that it was on Lake Erie and not the ocean.

Sarah and I took the ferry over and recycled our Starbucks cup to enjoy our box of red wine!

We saw a sign for lobster bisque and headed straight there for dinner and drinks, and a beautiful view of the lake :)

Our bed and breakfast was in the perfect location, just a block away from the main strip which included a brewery, the shortest bar in the world and the longest bar in the world (supposedly).

The sunset was absolutely perfect, there was wildlife everywhere, the place was just serene!!  We were extremely tempted to stay on for a few extra days :)


The next day, we borrowed bikes from the B&B and road around the whole island.  It took about an hourish, which included a lakeside walk.  I named my lake house ("The Gatsby House") and saw Canada.

If you ever happen to find yourself driving I-80 through Ohio and wondering what to do for a night or two, check out Put-In Bay!  I promise you will not regret it!
