Art from all over the world and every time period is housed at this outstanding museum, considered one of the world's best. From paintings by Renoir to sculptures by Alexander Calder to a vast glass collection, you'll find wonderful treasures here. Founder and first president Edward Drummond Libbey wanted to build a place where art was accessible to everyone, hence the museum's free admission policy, which continues to this day. The Toledo Museum of Art is open:Tuesday & Wednesday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.Thursday & Friday: 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.Sunday: noon – 5 p.m.Closed Mondays, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Toledo has a wonderful art museum and glass pavilion but whenever they have special exhibitions they are worth seeing. The current Egypt exhibit is very good. Check out the info on their website about mummy movies shown because I don't remember dates or times, unfortunately we didn't plan well to see it all in one trip! We loved the exhibit though.

I have taken several classes at 577. Jewelry making was my favorite I went into the "classroom" and found several different stones and beads. I made three pair of earrings and a necklace. The lady who was teaching the class had several helpful hints to make things go smoothly she was very helpful.My husband also singled me up to a a basket weaving class of all things not at all my favorite but the other people in the class and the persons teaching the class made it more fun than it would have been otherwise.

Picturesque park to capture deer, birds, Fox, squirrels ducks and Canadian Geese And sometimes an Eagle hunting for dinner in the Maumee River! Nature trails on both sides of River Road and a bird watching sanctuary close to the Anthony Wayne Trail! Great park to capture graduation and wedding photos for sure! Enjoy!

Built during the War of 1812 by William Henry Harrison, Fort Meigs successfully defended Ohio from a combined force of British and Native Americans during the spring and summer of 1813. It also served as the step-off point for General Harrison's invasion of Canada in the fall of that year. Reconstructed in the 1970s and again in 2000 on its original location, Fort Meigs stands today to tell the story of the thousands of soldiers who lived, fought, and died there over 200 years ago. In addition to the reconstructed fort, a visitor center and museum are also located on the site, housing hundreds of artifacts discovered during archaeological digs of the battlefield.
Not up to the par of National forts. You can not use your senior National parks pass. An earthen fort. It's being restored. The attached museum is good, nice displays and very good historical information. Open Wednesday to Saturday 9:30- 5:00 and Sunday 12 - 5:00. The musket firing was good and the "soldier" very informative. The exhibits inside the fort are okay. Hopefully they will continue to upgrade the interior of the fort. The workers were great and friendly. We were still glad we made the trip and if you enjoy the history you will too.

You can visit the park many, many times and still find something new to see and do! I live close by and visit often, but never ceased to be amazed at the new places within it and the new rare species which exist. From the sand dunes to the bike trails to Tornado Alley to Mallard Lake, there are so many different habitats to explore in one trip or many. So many rare things to appreciate! Truly the best of the Toledo Area MetroParks!

This Antique Mall has a wide variety of merchandise. Each vendor's spot seems to be easily accessible. The place is HUGE! We spent at least 2 hours there and only saw about half. The staff was helpful and professional. If you like antiques, you will enjoy this place!

We took our kayaks there and we weren’t disappointed. They have the best kayak launch. Only downfall is the walk from the parking lot to the launch.

Fifth Third Field is in the heart of Downtown Toledo and is home to the World-Famous Toledo Mud Hens.
This is the place where you can enjoy a meal, baseball, and have fun after the game. Great restaurants around Hensville, lots of parking, and safe streets surround the stadium. There is so much excitement during the game and between innings. Pick a night with fireworks or running the bases! After the game, you can grab a drink or a snack to finish your day!

Visited this outdoor mall when we visit Maumee a couple of weekends ago. Very nice shops with plenty of parking. There are a few restuarants, cinema, JCP anchor where we found a nice MK purse on sale as well as a blender. The exact same purse was selling at SAMs Club for $40 more. There was a Dillard's but no real sales. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere and no grocery store. Other than that, nice place to spend an afternoon window shopping. Would recommend to all if in the area.

Memorial marks the site of a 1794 battle, which is considered to have been the last battle of the American Revolution.
Really, there are only two reasons to visit this site. First, if you love history as much as I do, you will enjoy it despite the appalling lack of anything but a parking lot, a walking loop, restrooms, and some interpretive signs (if the nearby building has interpretive displays, we could not tell since it was closed for a private party). Second, if you enjoy outdoor walks on a 1.5 mile flat path half-wooded and half in direct sunlight, then you will certainly appreciate this facility. Otherwise, don't bother
