Pool Bars: A Put-in-Bay Classic
One of the things Put-in-Bay is most famous for is its pool bars. Nowhere else in the northern half of America is more synonymous with the pool bar. When you swim up and order a cold beverage to enjoy without even leaving the pool, you’ll think you’re hanging out on South Padre Island, not in the middle of Lake Erie! This is of course for adults only, but if you are an adult, even if you aren’t a big partier, we recommend you check a pool bar out, if only for a minute, because it’s a totally unique experience you’ll likely never get again!
