Description

Toledo's gotten a lot of good press over the years. You probably remember that Corporal Klinger from M.A.S.H. hailed from Toledo and used to weep at the thought of the chili, stuffed cabbage, and Hungarian hot dogs served up at Tony Packo's Cafe (419-691-6054). You may even remember Danny Thomas's TV show in the 1960s and his Uncle Tonoose (played by Hans Conried), who was forever arriving from Toledo. They raved about the place. With the Maumee River flowing right through the heart of this major inland seaport, a great way to get to know the city and its history is to follow the river. If you like sightseeing by boat, several excursion lines cruise the Maumee. Try the Sandpiper (419-537-1212) or Arawanna II (419-382-6300). If you're up for it, this tour will take you down through time as you go downstream, moving from the pioneer past to the quiet timelessness of tomorrow.
