Perry’s Cave is one of Ohio’s Best Caves to Tour

Perry’s Cave, located in Put-in-Bay, Ohio is registered as an Ohio Natural Landmark. Take some-what rustic steps down 52 feet below the surface and you’ll find a huge cave of natural limestone that is 208 feet long and 165 feet wide. This cave is deep with history as Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry used it for his victory of the Battle of Lake Erie.

Perry’s Cave is a must-see when going to Put-in-Bay. We’ve been to other “caves” throughout Ohio that were merely a large overhang of rock. Perry’s Cave is burried deep under the ground and filled with wonder.  You’ll see stalactites and stalagmites and learn the difference by the comical (with corny jokes) tour guide.

You’ll also get an up-close look at an Underground Lake. This lake is what helped Perry’s men win the Battle of Lake Erie.  The water actually creates an optical illusion, it looks very shallow but is 8-9 feet deep in some parts.

Although we had a very fun time visiting the cave, for some reason, none of my pictures turned out visible. You’ll have to take my word on it, Perry’s Cave is a must-see while visiting Put-in-Bay.
