Put-in-Bay, Ohio... it's a fun place to be; not far off either and convenient and happening. It has lots of options to do and spend some quality time. Water sports like any shoreline town, kayak, canoe, jet ski, rent a boat, parasail, and on and on. Or just lie in the parks and have a beautiful view of the mighty lake erie. Pool parties, sunday classic car parades, biplane rides... So much to do. Rent a golf cart for the day and you are set to explore the island. There is also a good variety of shops, pubs, and bars to grab a beer.
