Your Road Trip to Put-in-Bay


Make the Lake Erie Island of Put-in-Bay, Ohio, your first summer road trip! The fun begins once you hop aboard the Miller Ferry. The relaxing 20-minute ride has breathtaking views, perfect for photo opps. Once you arrive, cruise the island on a golf cart and enjoy the sites with your family.

Before you begin your road trip, check out MillerFerry.com, where you will find: directions, the ferry schedule, free parking info, and ways to save on your island travel. You have the option to purchase your passenger ferry tickets online or when you arrive at the Miller Ferry Catawba Dock. If you choose to buy online, upon arrival, scan your emailed QR code at the Catawba online ticket booth to receive your tickets and board the next ferry.

E Golf Carts Put-in-Bay

E’s Golf Carts is located at the Miller Ferry Put-in-Bay Dock. When you get off the ferry, head up the hill, and E’s Carts is located about 20 yards down on your right. You can reserve a golf cart ahead of time online at Esputinbaygolfcarts.com. During the summer months, we recommend booking your golf cart about a week in advance. E’s has golf carts to accommodate one person traveling solo up to a group as large as eight on one cart.

Once you get on the road, there are endless possibilities for things to do. The island is only three by one miles at its longest points, so nothing is too far away. Families can enjoy Perry’s Cave Family Fun Center, Lake Erie Wildlife & Nature Center, and The Crystal Cave Tour. Another great idea is cruising around to enjoy the scenery. Did you know Put-in-Bay has a story walk and several nature trails? You can find more information on these and all Put-in-Bay attractions at Millerferry.com.
