Must visit...the beautiful campus of the University of Toledo for a leisurely walk. UT has a number of Gothic buildings, including the bell clock tower that looks over the campus. Buff-colored native limestone was used to build it. It was completed in 1931 and is said that it took a year to build the clock tower. Look up and you'll see on the top four corners of the 156-step, 206-foot Bell Tower the four gargoyles that overlook the campus. In 1978, geography students designed the layout of Centennial Mall sidewalks by perching atop the Bell Tower and photographing the snow paths made by students walking to class. Also, the trees planted around the center circle are known as the Circle of Champions. Each tree represents a UT MAC Championship. Chimes ring for each hour and a single chime on the half-hour. If you're visiting at 5 pm or 7:15 pm any evening of the week, you'll hear songs being chimed from the tower also.

Chain restaurant, but feels like a local place. The eggplant lasagna and the shrimp alfredo are very good. Some spotty reviews online so could be hit or miss, but we've always enjoyed the food and service whenever we've had dinner there. Located downtown Toledo near the Farmer's Market.

This is our favorite metro park. We love to ride our bikes on the biking/hiking path . It's called The Towpath Trail and follows the remains of the Miami and Erie Canal along the old towpath where mules towed flat-bottom boats along the waterway. ( on the weekends, they sometimes have re-enactments with a flat-bottom boat & mules) It's 18 miles round trip through three parks of mostly wooded areas. Much of the trail runs parallel to the Maumee River. Very shady and not too hot on warmer summer days...if you start out early. Located in Waterville, Ohio...about 20 miles from Bee1.

Detroit always gets a bad rap... but as locals, originally from Detroit and surrounding areas, we can definitely tell you what is so beautiful about downtown Detroit. First of all, there's the riverwalk. In fact, The Detroit Riverwalk is 3.5 miles long and has recently been named the Best Riverwalk in the country in the 2021 USA Today ...but we've known that for a long time! We love to take our bicycles (bike rentals throughout the city) and ride the entire riverwalk all the way into Belle Isle Park, which is 982-acre island park in Detroit. It was developed in the late 19th century and was designed by Frederick Olmstead...who also designed Central Park NYC. Another great area to visit in the heart of downtown is Greektown for authentic Greek food. There's also a casino and of course, the Greek food! If you have any questions regarding Detroit or Greektown, please just ask us. Jim is from Detroit and can advise.

Located in Detroit, Michigan...The Eastern Market is called the “largest historic urban food and open-air flowerbed market” in the US. We enjoy strolling the aisles and buildings (called “sheds”) …fresh produce ,plants, seasonal flowers. Around the market area, warehouses offer many specialty shops offering meats, fish, wine, coffee, and nuts. There’s also a few restaurants for breakfast, lunch &dinner/bars. The best day to attend the market is Saturday, when it operates from 6:00 am until 4:00 pm, but it also offers a smaller number of vendors on other select days on Sundays & Tuesdays (check their website for hours and details).

Over the border in Dearborn, Michigan. Awesome history in a beautiful village setting. It will truly take you back in time. Great for everyone! “The Village” is an 80-plus acre outdoor living history museum with six historic districts. Stand in the very lab where Thomas Edison had his light bulb moment and the workshop where the Wright brothers began their quest to reach for the sky. Take a ride in a real Ford Model T or explore the working farms. Also, next door is The Henry Ford Museum. Many interesting exhibits. You may want to have dinner while you're in Dearborn. It's home to the country’s largest Arab American population and that has, by reputation, some of the best Middle Eastern restaurants in the United States. Less than an hour’s drive away from Bee1.
