If you like gritty industrial cities, then Toledo is the place for you. If you think that Cleveland has gotten too touristy over the last few years, then Toledo is the place for you. If you are looking for a quick getaway from Detroit, then Toledo is the place.
But here's the rub - Toledo has one of the greatest art museums in North America. If there's only one thing you do in Toledo, it's gotta be a visit to this remarkable collection of masterpieces from every continent and every era. (This "piece" is actually from the acclaimed Paris Metro system. The designer Hector Guimard created this Art Nouveau classic in 1900, and it makes a whimsical addition to the Wells Sculpture Garden at the Museum.)
It makes sense that Toledo should have good beer - a gritty industrial city with a large central European population, located close to America's grain producing region. The Maumee Bay Brewing Co. is an excellent brewpub located close to downtown in a well-maintained complex that includes the Oliver Hotel.
