Sunstoppers Sunglasses

Sunstoppers Particulars

Situated on Delaware Avenue, SunStoppers is a highly specialized store offering the best selection of sunglasses on Put-in-Bay.

Located right next to the Boathouse Bar and Grill, it’s a must-visit destination for sun-worshippers.

The story of SunStoppers revolves around Laurie Utterberg, affectionately known as “the Sunglass Lady.”

With over three decades of experience selling sunglasses, Laurie understands the importance of eye protection for those with an active outdoor lifestyle.

After traveling and selling sunglasses at trade shows across the country, she decided to make Put-in-Bay her home.

Assisted by the friendly locals, Laurie established her store and now operates it with her partner, Anne Spettel, in the original “Sunglass Hut” location.

Visitors are drawn to SunStoppers for the personalized attention and expert advice they provide.

Whether you need sunglasses for boating, biking, golfing, sunbathing, driving, or walking, the Sunglass Ladies have the perfect lenses for you.

They specialize in polarized lenses, which effectively reduce glare reflecting off the water—an essential feature for enjoying summertime activities on Lake Erie.

At SunStoppers, you’ll find an impressive range of brands, including Maui Jim, Costa Del Mar, Serengeti, Oakley, Hobie, Nike, and Chili Peppers.

With such a diverse selection, you’re sure to find the ideal pair of shades to complement your style and protect your eyes.

After purchasing your new sunglasses, it’s time to enjoy the water activities that Put-in-Bay has to offer.

Head back to your boat and bask in the sun, knowing that your eyes are well protected. The island provides various public and private docks near downtown, offering convenient access to the water.

For those without a boat, South Bass Island State Park offers watercraft rentals, including power boats, jet skis, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards.

Paddleboarding is a fantastic way to explore the island’s coastline while also getting a good workout. Alternatively, Kayak the Bay offers kayak rentals and inspiring tours, such as the popular Sunset Tour and the educational Gibraltar Island Tour. The latter includes a walking tour of Gibraltar Island, home to Cooke Castle, Perry’s Lookout, and intriguing glacial grooves.

With Sun Stoppers providing top-notch eyewear and the opportunity to enjoy the island’s water activities, your time at Put-in-Bay promises to be both stylish and adventurous.
