Toledo is the fourth most populous city in Ohio and is the county seat of Lucas County. Situated in northwestern Ohio, Toledo is just south of the Michigan border. Three major interstate highways pass through Toledo: Interstate 75, Interstate 80, and Interstate 90. Large cities such as Detroit, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Indianapolis are less than four hours away by car. Toledo has a humid continental climate, characterized by warm, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. Toledo’s long history of glass manufacturing has earned it the nickname “The Glass City.” Going back in history, the Native American tribes and the United States fought a series of battles for control of the Northwest Territory. After the Native American tribes were defeated in 1794 at the Battle of Fallen Timbers, they ceded large areas of territory in Ohio to the United States. In 1833, the state of Ohio agreed to the construction of the Wabash and Erie Canal. Many small towns wanted to be the ending terminus of the canal and as a result, the towns of Port Lawrence and Vistula merged in 1833 to increase their chances of getting picked. The merger of the two towns resulted in a new community, Toledo. During the last half of the 19th century, railroads were the major form of transportation. The railroads allowed Toledo to be a hub for several railroad companies and introduced new industries to the city such as carriage makers and glass manufacturers. The growth of Toledo continued into the early 20th century until the Great Depression hit. By the end of the 20th century, Toledo had a depressed economy. To draw residents back to the city, Downtown Toledo has recently undergone significant redevelopment.

Toledo has a population of 287,208 and the racial makeup of the city is 64.8% White, 27.2% African American, 7.4% Hispanic, and 1.1% Asian (2010 Census). Unfortunately the overall crime rate is very high in Toledo, placing Toledo among the top ten most dangerous cities in Ohio.

Toledo is home to the University of Toledo, the city’s biggest employer. Toledo’s economy used to be centered on industrial manufacturing, but the slump of American manufacturing resulted in a loss of numerous jobs. Toledo is currently home to several large glass companies and automotive-related companies. When it comes to parks and recreation, the Metroparks of the Toledo Area are a series of fourteen parks. When it comes to sports, Toledo is home to Fifth Third Field, a minor league baseball stadium that has been named one of the best minor league ballparks in America. Points of interest in the city include the Toledo Museum of Art, the National Museum of the Great Lakes, the Toledo Zoo, the Toledo Botanical Garden, the Huntington Center, and the Hollywood Casino Toledo.
