Great views

This was the only attraction open and was very interesting. However, not enough to suggest going to Put-In-Bay.

Definitely one of the highlights of our trip every year for me. We really enjoy going up into the tower and checking out the crazy amazing views. My husband is scared of heights but he still loves doing this because the views of the lake and island are so worth it!

This is a lovely place to visit. The views are spectacular. It was frigid on the day we were there, so there was no line to get in. I would love to go again when it is warmer.

Regardless of the historical significance (which is cool) the view is amazing. Being able to look out at the tranquility of the lake all the way to Canada is breath taking.

The only view of all of the Lake Erie islands and Peelee island. Excellent NPS to explain the Battle of Lake Erie. IMOPORTANT NOTE: The ride to the top of the monument will be closed in the summers of 2017 and 2018 due to constructions. Check out the NP website.

This monument is 300 feet tall. An elevator takes you to the top. There is an incredible view of South Bass Island, Gibralter Island, Middle Bass Island and you can even see an island in Canada. It was well worth the $10 cost. The people that work there give great information on the history of the monument.

If you are like me and knew nothing about the significance of the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812 then the Perry Memorial and museum are a must see. As a bonus you get an awesome view of PIB and the surrounding islands from atop the monument.
