The restaurants are stellar in Toledo, OH. Additionally, with the bonus of many great hospitals and doctors offices the Toledo area is great for job opportunities. Toledo also offers great sporting events like baseball and hockey. The Toledo Mudhens are the local baseball team and there are several home games around the baseball season and they offer great hometown atmosphere. Additionally, the local hockey team the Toledo Walleye offer a great hometown and family feel. The local downtown area is great to spend an evening with friends, wether that is going to a hockey game or enjoying the weather outside at the ball field Toledo is the way to go!

Toledo seems to be a city that's coming back! There are several large companies that are located here (especially health care companies and hospitals), so I'd say that job opportunities should be abundant. It is also the home to several universities, which are also full of opportunity.
The downtown and nightlife seen have been on the rise, as downtown Toledo has many bars, restaurants, and attractions for all.
Personally, my experience has been positive. Of the three neighborhoods that I've lived in, all of them have been very safe.
One particular thing that we love about Toledo is the abundance of metroparks that are available. There are so many of them, and they all feature the natural beauty of the area in which they're placed. You almost forget that you're in a good sized city while you're there!
As with all cities, there are parts of town in particular that could use improvement, and it seems that law and policy makers are aware of them and taking steps to improve the city.
I came back to Toledo to work for the Usda. I do not regret this decision whatsoever. Toledo is a community where you will find a lot of diversity. The Toledo Zoo, Art Museum, Mud Hens (Minor league Baseball team), Walleye (ECHL team), and the university are just a couple of Toledo's attraction. Their downtown is starting to come back and a lot of people are starting to move down their. There are so many great places to eat downtown and Tony Packo's is a must! When it comes to shopping Franklin Park Mall is the place to be! When it comes to Neighborhoods in Toledo, the West and South side are pretty clean and decent. Old Orchard, Westmoreland, Westgate, Franklin Park, Indian Hills, Elmhurst, Beverly-Harvard, the Library Village, DeVeaux, Whitmer-Tribley, and the Alexis Addition are some of the best neighborhoods in Toledo!
