This week’s One Tank Trip features a trip to the fan-favorite: Put-in-Bay. How awesome is it that there is a fun summer destination just miles and a short ferry ride away from Cincinnati? This One Tank Trip is full of fun in the sun for the whole family.
If you’re anything like me, the top attraction would be all the fun to be had in Lake Erie. There are so many enjoyable things to do in the water; jet skiing, parasailing and kayaking, to name a few. For the men (and women) out there that enjoy fishing, no need to worry, there’s an abundant amount of walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass and steelhead trout to go around.
Put-in-Bay is home to Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial National Monument, the world’s most massive Doric column. This monument was raised in the purpose “to inculcate the lessons of international peace by arbitration and disarmament.” This special monument stands alongside the Gateway Arch, the Washington Monument and the San Jacinto Monument as one of the tallest in the United States.
Put-in-Bay has a lot of shopping to offer that can tailor to any family member. From gift shops to get your memorabilia, to wine shops, shops that house Gucci, Prada and Ray Bans and boutiques that supply all the outdoor gear.
This time of the year is perfect for a trip to Put-in-Bay. Hitting the water, sampling the local fare and cruising through the shops makes it one of Ohio’s top vacation spots.
Stay tuned for more One Tank Trips as the summer goes on!
