Put-in-Bay’s Amphicar Days Are Here!
Behold one of the rarest sights you’ll ever see, 7/31-8/1 at Put-in-Bay. Cars that can drive down a ramp into a lake, and then boat around in the water. These Amphicars, manufactured in the 60s and lovingly maintained by their owners, are a quirky piece of automotive history that, let’s face it, is way cooler than a regular car. And you can see them in person for two days, and if you’re really lucky, maybe catch a ride in one!
