What a great time of year and what a great area we live and work in! At lunch the other day we got to talking about our favorite things to do in the Toledo area and came up with a pretty good list. Take a look and see if you agree with our thoughts.
Of course our conversation got started with our favorite places to eat (we often talk about food around here). There were a wide range of choices. Many people love to go the Docks to enjoy the food and fun offered there. Paddy Jack’s was a favorite as was the Spaghetti Warehouse. Ahmed’s Steak House is popular for the steak and potato crowd and Bergers Old Thyme Grill was popular for their great ½ lb. burgers! The subject of Mexican style restaurants got some fun going with CInco de Mayo and El Nuevo Vallarta seemingly coming out on top, with El Camino Real garnering a great deal of favor as well. Let us know about your favorite eateries – we’re always looking for new places!
There was greater consensus when it came to defining Wildwood Park a favorite for biking, walking and just getting away from it all. And our group’s favorite bike shop is Wersell’s and taking advantage of their many planned community bike rides. We also have a golfing contingent that rated Ottawa Park and Bedford Hills among their favorite links.
Another favorite is the Toledo Museum of Art. A couple of our staff have taken the Flame Art Classes to make seasonal glass objects as decorations or gifts. And certainly the Toledo Zoo is a favorite of everyone!
We all agreed that Toledo offers excellent entertainment opportunities from major college athletics (Go Rockets!) to top notch professional level sports with the Mud Hens, Walleye, and LPGA golf, to major musical and theatrical entertainment at the Huntington Center and Stranahan Theater.
