Are you ready to hear about some more fun things to do in Ohio?

This post is going to take us to Toledo which is in northwest Ohio, on the western end of Lake Erie, and borders the state of Michigan.  If you’re more of a visual person this map should help.


Three things you must do if you ever find yourself in Toledo, Ohio…

1.) Visit the National Museum of the Great Lakes.  Here you will learn the history of the Great Lakes which make up 84 percent of the fresh surface water in North America.  There are more than 250 Great Lakes artifacts to view including a life raft recovered from the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.  Experience more than 40 hands-on exhibits where you can even maneuver your very own simulated submersible through the wreckage of a lost freighter.  Take a tour of the S.S. Col. James M. Schoonmaker which was the the largest ship operating on the Great Lakes until April 14, 1914.  Finish up with a stroll through a 3.5 acre park with maritime artifacts and beautiful landscaping along the bank of the Maumee River.

2.)  Go wild at the Toledo Zoo & Aquarium which has been consistently recognized as one of the nation’s top ranked zoos.  With more than 750 exotic species from all over the world the Toledo Zoo is considered one of the world’s most complete zoos.  In one day you will experience animals from the Arctic tundra to the wilds of Africa, from the tropical rainforest to the Sonoran Desert and all points between.  If you have a favorite animal chances are you will find it at the Toledo Zoo!  Plus after two and a half years of renovation the aquarium is now open and home to 3000+ aquatic animals in 178,000 gallons of water.

3.)  Grab a bite at The Real Seafood Company – a contemporary seafood restaurant that offers premium fresh fish and seafood from the waters of New England to the Great Lakes and to the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy fresh oysters, lobster, shrimp, and the authentic flavors of seasonal and local produce. Open for lunch/dinner daily with outdoor patio seating that offers a beautiful view of the Maumee River.  I highly recommend the Lake Erie Perch.

    I have never been to Toledo but man, the zoo looks amazing! I’m hoping to travel more with the kids now that they are older and this definitely sounds like a place I need to visit!

    I’m so glad you shared this. I’ve never thought about visiting Toldedo to be honest with you. I had no idea there was so much to do there.

  5. Tiffany Cruz says:

    Ohio is a state I haven’t had the chance to visit yet, but I will and I’ll have to do all 3 of these activities.

      You’re a real deep thikenr. Thanks for sharing.

    • Till anonym: Det skulle knappast hjälpa att tillbringa kvällen med en mjölkpump i en skrubb, eller hur? Däremot skulle det vara en tänkbar lösning att pumpa ur brösten INNAN man gick pÃ¥ fest, sÃ¥ kunde man vara borta fÃ¥rn babyn ett par timmar i alla fall om man sÃ¥ ville.

      As a head teacher I was always aware of the bullying that went on but sadly folk do not always learn the lessons like you did.** See what Julia has been up to…

    • WOW what spin and hype. Delivered with such sincerity, as if Arny was, well, an actor or something. Using a loaded term, “bubble”, as if this is just another bad business deal instead of Government incompetence is outrageous. Frightening everyone that they will have to cover these taxes in the future is also typical, as if you haven’t paid these taxes once already. You did. Just like Social Security. The State money has been misspent. If you have to pay it again, be angry. Be very, very angry.

    • இந்த உலகில் கோடிக்கணக்கான மக்களை கொன்றொழித்த்து முதலாளித்துவம்தான், கம்யூனிசமல்ல. சென்ற ஆண்டு அமைதிக்கான நோபல்பரிசு ஈராக் மீதான அமெரிக்க ஆக்கிரமிப்பை ஆதரித்த ஒரு சீனருக்குதான் கிடைத்த்து. அது ஏன் என்று கருதுகிறீர்கள்? இந்தியாவில் காஷமீரிலும், தண்டகாரண்யாவிலும், வடகிழக்கிலும், அன்றாடம் கொல்லப்படும் மக்களை அறிவீர்களா? கம்யூனிச வெறுப்பு உங்களிடம் இருப்பது பிரச்சினை அல்ல. ஆனால் இன்று நடக்கும் இந்த மனிதவிரோதங்களையெல்லாம் ஒன்றுமில்லை என்று தள்ளுபடி செய்கிறீர்கள் அல்லவா அதுதான் சகிக்க முடியவில்லை.
