Every year on April 19th, northwest Ohio celebrates the communities and businesses that make up the 419 area code. Every citizen of this zip code is encouraged to go out and enjoy what makes the area great. We encourage you to patron your favorite local eatery (whether it be takeout or dine-in), check out one of the 19 (!!) Metroparks in Toledo, or just go for a drive around town with the windows down.
Listed below are some great spots to visit:
Side Cut Metropark
1025 W River Rd., Maumee
The wellspring from which Toledo’s Metroparks began, Side Cut is a beautiful and serene location. The first Metropark, Side Cut gets its name from an extension of the Miami and Erie Canals that connected them to Maumee. Three of the original canal locks were preserved in the 1930s by WPA workers, who also built many of Side Cut’s signature shelters. Side Cut is popular with fishing enthusiasts, but visitors of all ages find joy in its playgrounds, picnic areas and, in the winter, an excellent sledding hill.
1902 Front St.
There may be no eatery that screams “Toledo” more than Tony Packo’s. Opened in 1932, the brand was made famous by the Toledo’s own Jamie Farr in the classic TV series M*A*S*H. The number of locations has expanded, and the walls are lined with the autographed hot dog buns, but the core of the enterprise that began on Front St. remains the same: Darn good Hungarian hot dogs, served in a relaxed, classic setting.
N St. Clair St.
The return of the Mud Hens for the 2021 season is reason to celebrate, and the hub of dining, nightlife and entertainment that surrounds Fifth Third Field has been a boon to downtown for years. Visitors can grab a bite or a beverage from Holy Toledo Tavern or Fleetwood’s, enjoy some beautiful views of the city skyline from the rooftops, grab Mud Hens swag at the Swamp Shop and find a unique and
memorable place for events at Hensville.
