Kelleys Island is the second-largest of the Lake Erie Islands, an archipelago shared between the United States and Canada. The island is roughly three and a half miles north of the Marblehead Peninsula, and approximately ten miles north of Sandusky, Ohio.
Although it is only a short drive from many large metropolitan areas, Kelleys Island is within sight of the Canadian border. The year-round population of just over 300 swells up to 5,000 during the summer months. With a landmass of twenty-eight hundred acres and twelve miles of beautiful shoreline, the island has a lot to offer.
The downtown area is the heart of island activity, where visitors can do everything from browse unique shops, to play a game of miniature golf, or just relax in Memorial Park and enjoy the sights and sounds of island life.
Many restaurants provide both inside and outdoor dining experiences, a complete range of cuisine and a variety of entertainment weekends throughout the season. Enjoy a local craft beer at the Kelleys Island Brewery and sample island wine at the Kelleys Island Wine Company. Most visitors enjoy topping off their stay with an ice cream cone, some fresh island fudge, or a sweet treat from the bakery.
