Toledo is the fourth most populous city in the U.S. state of Ohio and is the county seat of Lucas County. Toledo is in northwest Ohio, on the western end of Lake Erie, and borders the State of Michigan. The city was founded in 1833 on the west bank of the Maumee River.

We cordially invite you to see what makes outdoor life in Toledo so wild and wonderful, to discover the robust character and entrepreneurial spirit that defines the history of Toledo, Ohio – a city built on dreams, to enjoy full immersion in its dynamic culture of fine arts, to experience the multicultural heritage at the heart and soul of Toledo and to trace the individual fibers of its ethnic culture that have been woven to form its diverse tapestry.

Whether you're looking for world-renowned museums, golf or fun with the kids, Toledo is a sure bet! The Toledo area is dotted with beautiful metro parks and nature preserves offering boundless recreation no matter the season. Its role as a major producer of auto parts and glass, combined with its proximity to Lake Erie, has brought prosperity, evident in the wide array of cultural and recreational attractions, fine restaurants and lodging options. A weekend's worth of family fun can be realized with visits to the Toledo Zoo, the Botanical Garden and COSI, the city's state-of-the art science center.
