Fans of the long-running program "M*A*S*H" know Toledo, Ohio, as the hometown of Corporal Maxwell Klinger, whose favorite eatery serving Hungarian food and chili still stands in the city. But Toledo has a vibrant cultural scene in real life, where you can stroll through old Victorian neighborhoods or view modern art in a glass pavilion. Toledo vacation packages are a great getaway option, and cheap hotels in Toledo are abundant.
That Glass Pavilion is a new addition to the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA), and it houses a 5,000-piece glass collection. Toledo is known as the "Glass City" because of its long history with the commercial industry and works of glass art. The Pavilion is just one part of the TMA's large collection that includes Asian, American, and international art, sculpture, and antiquities. Check it out in the Old West End neighborhood, where the Rosary Cathedral and the Toledo Symphony Orchestra are also situated.
While in the Old West End, take a tour of the neighborhood's extraordinarily preserved Victorian architecture. Rumor has it the neighborhood's Pythian Castle is haunted, so steer clear if you're wary of ghosts. If ghost-hunting or architecture-spotting is not your style, and it's baseball season, take in a Toledo Mud Hens AAA game downtown.
After the game, or during, indulge in chili dogs like an Ohioan local. But Toledo is also near the water, which means there's the catch of the day served in restaurants by the Maumee River. Downtown Toledo has a good selection of steakhouses for those who want to finish off a day of touring the Old West End with some red meat. In other words, a good meal is never too far away from the main hotels in Toledo.
