Explore the Lake Erie Islands when you stay at one of our hotels!
Family vacations are often all about the water and when you plan a visit to the Sandusky, Ohio area, the islands around Lake Erie — Kelleys Island, Middle Bass Island, and Put-in-Bay/South Bass Island — are a huge attraction.
Many travelers to the region spend a few days making tracks to the roller coasters and amusement parks and then chill out with some time at the islands. It’s the perfect combination of action and adventure and rest and relaxation and has become one of the most appealing vacation destinations in the Midwest.
The Lake Erie Shores & Islands region boasts more than 150 miles of freshwater coastline with something for everyone. Middle Bass Island features a tranquil atmosphere and a natural landscape that attracts vacationers seeking a carefree, relaxing getaway.
South Bass Island is known for adventure around every corner. And Kelleys Island, the largest of the three, is the best of both worlds – a bit of adventure blended with incredible natural beauty.
Fishermen consider the islands region to be a little bit of heaven. Known as “the Walleye Capital of the World” anglers in search of yellow perch, smallmouth bass, steelhead trout, and many other fish come here year round. And when you can fish from a variety of shoreline locations as well as through charter boats or walk-on head boats, there is nothing better!
Vacationers come to the Islands for so many reasons…to just sit back and soak up the sun; to regale friends and family with great fish stories, to kayak along the lake, go bird watching, dive at shipwreck sites, and so much more.
