There’s actually plenty for families and mid-weekers to do on Put-in-Bay, which has a reputation for non-stop weekend partying.
One stop they’ll surely want to make is the Perry’s Cave Family Fun Center, where there’s an attraction to appeal to almost every taste. There’s a rock-climbing wall, an antique car museum, miniature golf, panning for gemstones and a giant maze.
But there are two distinctive things you shouldn’t miss that are out of the realm of the usual family resort attractions. One is Perry’s Cave itself, 52 feet below the surface, where a tour guide will share the history of its discovery and use and its geological features. The other is the butterfly house where visitors can stroll and relax among an array of flowers and shrubs and more than 50 varieties of butterflies, some of which will come and land on you.
The attractions are open seven days a week May through September. They also have large, themed gift shops for those who promised to bring home souvenirs.
