Here Are 8 Islands In Ohio That Are An Absolute Must Visit
Yes. Ohio has island life too.
In fact, Ohio is actually home to more than a dozen natural islands, all differing in size, their number of inhabitants and above-water presence (with the rise and fall of Lake Erie’s water levels), according to the ODNR Office of Coastal Management. The following are eight accessible islands in Ohio that hold some pretty unique attractions, pieces of history and unforgettable experiences waiting for you.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
