Toledo Travel Guide

Though Toledo is often referred to in the media as a dull or unlikeable place that is far from the truth. You’ll never wonder what to do in Toledo. There are a lot of things to do in Toledo, Ohio. For the art lover, there is the Toledo Museum of Art with over thirty thousand works from all over the globe on display. This museum, which opened in 1901, has grown from a space-filling two rooms to a massive campus of six buildings over thirty-six acres. The Glass Pavilion is a must-see spot in this museum with a glass study room, coffee bar, and five galleries. There are even weekly events, like glass blowing demonstrations.

History buffs wondering what to do in Toledo should go to Fallen Timbers Memorial Park to witness the Battle of Fallen Timbers. You can learn more about this battle and how it led to a further expansion of the Western territories for free. Or make your way to the Canal Experience where you’ll learn about how the canal operates.

Richland Carrousel Park is one of the best things to do in Toledo if you have children. This carousel boasts thirty horses and twenty-two other animals (one of which is mythical!) The Toledo Zoo is sure to keep both children and adults entertained. The zoo brings animals from across the globe to one place.
