(2018 Event) If you can make it across the ice, then come bring your friends and join the islanders for an Irish themed day at the Bay! There are a couple bars open over the winter and on this special day they both turn green. We may be close to Canada, but everyone here is Irish for a day. There will be a few Put-in-Bay lodging choices open for guests for this traditional holiday. Book securely online or give us a jingle at 216-898-9951 to inquire. (2018 Event)
Put-in-Bay Trivia: Along the lovely shores of South Bass Island (Put-in-Bay), five luxury hotels were built by 1888. One of the hotels, The Hotel Victory is referred to as a symbol of the peak of the lavish 1890’s. Being the biggest summer resort in the U.S. at the time, the Hotel Victory was operating 27 years prior to being ruined by a fire on August 14, 1919. Today, you can still see the remains of some of the foundation and its swimming pool at the South Bass Island State Park.
