PIB Weekend Away: Island Fun Pack

When Jill from Lake Erie Shores & Islands starting planning our weekend trip to PIB she mentioned the Island Fun Pack.  It seemed like something only couples with children would do but we decided to check it out and see what it was all about.  We arrived at The Depot to pick up our Fun Pack & hop on the first train ride of the day.  The train ride takes you to all destinations in the fun pack & also gives you a tour around the island and a history lesson.  Put in Bay has much more history than I ever knew! 

Our first stop was at Perry's Cave family fun center.  We took a stroll through the Antique Car Museum. 



Then headed to Perry's Cave which was originally discovered by Commodore Perry in 1813.   The cave is 52 feet below surface and hosts a rare underground lake. 



My personal favorite of the fun pack was the Butterfly house!  It felt like a piece of heaven on earth.  There is beautiful peaceful music playing, fountains & park benches.  I told Eric I wanted to take a nap in there. 





We also checked out the War of 18 holes Miniature Golf! Eric may have beat me but I still enjoyed the game!






And we finished off our fun pack at Heineman's Winery & Crystal Cave.  The Winery was founded in 1888 & survived prohibition of alcohol by selling grape juice & offering cave tours! The tour includes wine sampling & we decided to also enjoy a cheese plate thanks to Jayme's recommendation.








We were pleasantly surprised on how much fun the Island Fun Pack was & how much we learned & discovered!  After spending a few hours at the fun center & winery we just grabbed the train ride back to the depot!  It was a perfect way to spend a day at Put in Bay!  Thank you so much to Heineman's Winery & Perry's Cave Family Fun Center for providing 2 Island Fun Packs!

Well I'm completely moved in and have started my new job!  I'm loving both of the changes!  My new home has a huge backyard that the dogs love to run in.  I have a washer & dryer again which is the best part!  Once I have everything up on the walls I'll have a post to share my new home!  My new job is still in the dental field.  I'm very excited for the opportunities that I will have there.  I'm feeling very blessed.

I hope you are doing well!  I have missed commenting on fellow bloggers posts & talking with you.  It was a nice needed break and I will continue to blog on my own schedule.  Its nice to miss things that you love once in awhile!  Ill be back later this week to continue my posts about my trip to PIB in September! Have a wonderful Monday!
