Toledo Zoo
The Toledo Zoo is recognized as one of the world’s most complete zoos, and one of the region’s top family destinations. It boasts over 6,000 mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds and invertebrates representing more than 750 species, and innovative exhibits also get visitors up-close to many of your favorites.

Each year, nearly one million people visit the zoo to experience the wonders of the natural world, stroll the scenic grounds and explore the historic WPA-era buildings. Zoo highlights include the Arctic Encounter, the Africa! exhibit, Nature’s Neighborhood children’s area, the Tembo Trail, and the new Australian-themed Wild Walkabout, which runs through Sept. 2.

Lake Erie anglers should enjoy diverse fishing opportunities in 2013, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

“When you consider the mix of species and sizes that are seasonally available to Ohio anglers, we are optimistic about the fishing prospects this year,” said Jeff Tyson, Lake Erie fisheries program manager for the ODNR Division of Wildlife. “Weather is always a wild card at Lake Erie, but if conditions are similar to those in 2012, anglers should have excellent seasonal opportunities this year to catch walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass, white bass and steelhead.”

Toledo Mud Hens
The Toledo Mud Hens, the Triple A minor league affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Detroit Tigers for 26 years, play home games from April through September at Fifth Third Field at 406 Washington St. in Toledo’s Warehouse District.

Future major leaguers are among those on the team’s roster, and occasionally fans can see current major leaguers sent down for rehab or to better hone their skills.

If your visit to the area includes an afternoon (or more) of shopping, you’ll find local shops and malls have necessities and unique treats and one-of-a-kind treasures you’re looking for.

BassPro Shops, 10000 Bass Pro Boulevard, Rossford. 800-227-7776. The sights and sounds of the outdoors are brought indoors through museum-quality wildlife dioramas, huge murals and chandeliers depicting outdoor scenes, massive log and rock work, waterfalls and other water features, and aquariums stocked with native fish species.
