Exciting things to do

Any suggestions for exciting things to do in Toledo over the xmas holidays?

Are there any small places nearby that should be visited?

I do not know what your definition of "exciting" is or what kinds of things you enjoy doing. However, I can tell you that Toledo has an award winning Zoo which has a great light display for the Christmas holiday. This is a fun thing to do in the early evening, after dark, to get the full effect of all the special light displays. There are also several cafes at the zoo so that you can stop in for something to warm along the way.

Toledo also has a world class Art Museum. The Art Museum campus includes a new Glass Pavilion building which is a "must see".

If shopping or bargain hunting is of interest, there is a Libby Glass Outlet store located downtown.

Hope this is helpful.

Grew up in Toledo and agree with the previous post. The Zoo and Art Museum are fantastic. Westfield Franklin Park Mall is nice.

If you do not mind the drive there is a few places in Michigan like Bronners and Frankenmuth that are worth the trip. These places are 365 days a year Christmas Villages/Shopping areas. If you are a sports/fishing/hunting type of person Bass Pro is opening in June in Rossford which is a suburb of Toledo.

The lights at night at the Toledo Zoo are not to be missed if you are in town.

For shopping Westfield is ok, but do not miss outdoor shopping at Levis Commons in Perrysburg and the Shops at Fallen Timbers in Maumee.
