Clothing - The dress here is mostly informal, resort casual, even in the evening. Hats and sunscreen are a must to protect you from the sun if you plan on sitting by the pool or on the patio. Even if you tan easily, the sun will burn you if you're not prepared, ruining what could be your best vacation.

Marrying at Put-in-Bay - Everything can be arranged-from clergy to music to videotape to reception. Contact one of our managers for details. please visit our weddings page for more details.
Photo Tips - Because of the intense light during the day, slower film like 100 or 200 ASA will be the most practical. For non-automatic exposure cameras, cut the exposure down a stop or two when at the docks or on Perrys monument since the water and sand will reflect a lot of the brightness. For a clear image, 100 ASA film is recommended.
Time Zone - Put-in-Bay is in the Eastern Standard Time Zone.
