Formerly known as Island Number 6 and then Cunningham Island, Kelleys Island was renamed one final time in 1840 after enterprising brothers Datus and Irad Kelley. The island today witnesses scores of vacationers who arrive by ferry from mainland Ohio. While personal cars and bikes can be ferried across, rented golf carts are a common way to traverse the island. Discover the largest American island in Lake Erie at a vacation home or a cozy Kelleys Island cabin.

Lake Erie cuisine
The island's only winery, the Kelleys Island Wine Company, welcomes both children and pets to its sprawling locale, where you can enjoy a game of volleyball or frisbee. The winery serves up what may be the best pizza on the island, as well as cheese and meat platters, salads, and flatbread. Another family-friendly establishment is waterside Papa T’s Snack N’ Go Relax, where kids go crazy for their hand-dipped ice cream, sundaes, and milkshakes.
Welcoming mariners and locals since 1983, The Village Pump excels in typical Lake Erie bar food served in generous portions. Make sure to try their walleye fish preparations—after all, Lake Erie is the "Walleye Capital of the World." A classy and laidback affair awaits at Captain's Corner Bar & Grill, a downtown gem known for its traditional gyros, perch sandwiches, and chocolate cake.
A culture island
An ideal start to your visit would be at the informative Kelleys Island Historical Museum, whose exhibits give insight into the island's past through native Indian artifacts, fossils, and fishing gear. Next, catch a local art show at Charles Herndon Galleries and Sculpture Garden. Artwork can be purchased here as well.
Kelleys Island's easily walkable downtown district is a lively quarter brimming with art, theater, boutiques, and eclectic dining options. Look out for landmarks such as the Monument to the Unknown Soldier and Kelleys Island War Memorial. Near the ferry dock is the Inscription Rock, which attracts curious eyes with its Native American Indian petroglyphs. It is one of Ohio's most famous rock art sites.
Ohio's largest island ensures visitors are thoroughly entertained, with miles of azure coastline, wild flora and fauna, historic quarries, wetlands, and 600 acres of state park. Absolutely unmissable is Glacial Grooves State Park, home to the world's largest accessible glacial grooves carved by ice sheets around 18,000 years ago. This magnificent attraction is a shining example of the power of ice against rock. It is free and viewable from a walkway.
Kelleys Island State Park is another popular family attraction, offering a swimming beach with remarkably clear water, picnic areas, and miles of well-marked hiking trails. Stop by the winery ruins on your way to the park, which stand testament to the region's winemaking roots.
