Food scene

Great coffee and drink! Open 7-4 most days with a warm and inviting atmosphere. You can walk here from my place in less than 5 minutes. Just turn right when you walk down the drive and turn left on Detroit and you'll be sipping on a seasonal latte and enjoying a delicious breakfast before you know it! A great spot to sit alone and read a book, or take the whole family for a morning munch.

A great spot for beers on taps, as well as a cans and bottles to go. Earnest doesn't miss when it comes to flavor. Go in the evening and enjoy one of the food trucks always parked in the lot. Just a mile from my place, you can walk if you enjoy the outdoors, or take advantage of ample parking on site!

Easy grab and go options for travelers on the move! This is a great stop to pop in and get snag some good local food quick before your trip back home! My favorite is the layered hummus with pita chips! An easy walk from my place!

Only a 15-ish minute drive, but HIGHLY worth it! You can also have it delivered. Carryout or delivery only right now, but this is my favorite food in town! You can't go wrong, but I recommend their Hunan flavor of anything you might enjoy. Eat it while its hot and support this amazing local family owned business.

The house-made pastries and food choices really make this place shine! It's a homey, vintage shop inside that right on the downtown Maumee Strip. Take a walk at Sidecut Metropark just down the road after to shake off that caffeine buzz!

A great gastropub with all kinds of interesting and delicious food options. I'm obsessed with their soft pretzels and sweet potato tots, and just about everything else. Located in downtown Perrysburg. You can sometimes expect a wait, but there's plenty to see in downtown Perrysburg if you need to kill some time!

Great latte's and food options, the season menu is also always on point. (I tend to stick to their seasonal options exclusively!) All of their flavors are made in house. Indulge in a good book, Honeybee Latte, and decadent toast for a peaceful morning you won't want to end.

My favorite mediterranean! A great atmosphere with ample seating and locations in Downtown Perrysburg and near UToledo's campus. Don't miss the feta salsa!

Sightseeing

Take a walk down the Chessie Circle Trail to the river overlook. Converted from an old rail road track, this great path is a peaceful 3 mile round trip walk from my front door to the river view and back.

A Toledo Classic! A tip from my wise mother: depending on your family size, if you know you like to go at least once a year, it can sometimes be cheaper to buy a family membership instead of just paying for a day's admission! Dig into the prices and see if that's you.

One of the countries best museums! Admission is free and there is so much to discover here. Worth at LEAST a few hours. Oh- and don't sleep on the art museum cafe. The food is GREAT and very well priced. It's like an expensive restaurant meal at a cafe price. (Parking does incur a cost, but you can also park in the neighborhoods nearby for free and make a short walk over.)

Great views of the river and tons of shaded trails make this a great spot for a walk on a hot summer day. Tennis courts are also always in great shape!

City/town information

If you're around on a Thursday in the summer, visit the Perrysburg Farmer's market for a great night. A little over 10 minute's drive, this quaint and historic downtown does always a great time make with its local artisans and local food always ready to entertain.

Bowling Green has great downtown with local coffee and breweries, a record shop, used book store, and more! Highly recommended on a slow Saturday morning.

My favorite half-day trip! Just 50 minutes north of Toledo, Ann Arbor is full of fun surprises. You can't go wrong with dinner at Frita Batido, Aventura ($$$), or Tomuken! Make it an evening with a late movie at the historic State or Michigan Theaters. If you there in the morning or afternoon, swing by La Bon Macron for delicious pastries!
