Once known for its thriving auto and glass industries, Toledo has become so much more than a working-class city. Its diverse population has created a unique culture that might surprise some first-time visitors. The varied and ethnic dining options, nationally ranked zoo, preserved historic buildings and world-class art museum make Toledoans as proud of their hometown as any big-city fanatic. The thriving University of Toledo, the minor-league baseball team, the Toledo Mud Hens, and the well-maintained park system are just a few more reasons why Toledo just may be Ohio’s best-kept secret.
