Welcome to part three of my 2016 series about finding fun in the greater Sandusky, Ohio area. On this particular day we were riding Miller Ferry out to Put-In-Bay and as I mentioned in this post it’s really important to think about what kind of traffic you can expect on the island and how you want to get-around.


Where to find a golf cart on Put-In-Bay, South Bass IslandOur golf cart rental was provided for us to complete our travel on this day. This is not a paid post and opinions are my own.


We had chosen to visit Put-In-Bay on a weekend that just happened to fall on Father’s Day weekend and the Pyrate Fest. Thankfully, we had a golf cart reserved for us at E’s Golf Carts. E’s is just a short walk from the ferry dock. ALL their carts were gone or spoken for when we arrived and people were being turned away. It was a busy Saturday!!


As you’ll see below, our cart fit four – but you can get larger!  On a hot day or when facing challenging weather or limited time you’ll probably want to have a set of “wheels” to get around. Before you head out to Put-In-Bay it’s very wise to check the island’s calendar of events to see what’s happening and decide beforehand if you need to reserve a cart! (See my 3 tips here).
