If You Build the Field, They Will Come!

By
Real Estate Agent with Key Realty

 Are you looking for a destination for some great family activities that is fun and inexpensive?  Well consider a trip to Toledo, Ohio to see the pride and joy of Northwest Ohio, the Toledo Mud Hens!  

The Mud Hens are the AAA affiliate of The Detroit Tigers and are the 2006 and 2007 back-to-back Governors' Cups champions of the International League.  The Mud Hens play at Fifth Third Field, which is the crown jewel of a revitalized downtown Toledo.

In fact, the stadium, built in 2002 was named the best minor league ballpark in America.  It is located at the corner of Washington & Monroe Streets in the same place the original professional ballpark was built in 1883.

If baseball is not your cup of tea, there are plenty of other attractions in the immediate area surrounding the park.  There are restaurants, gift shops, a convention center and pubs all within walking distance.  Some of the restaurants include, world famous Tony Packos, , The Spaghetti Warehouse, and Frickers to name just a few. 

There's also C.O.S.I. (the Center of Science and Industry), which is a hands on science center that the whole family can enjoy!  Right across the street is the Seagate Convention Center which hosts the a variety of events including the annual Home & Garden Show, the Toledo Auto Show, Concerts and more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It has been said, in the movie Field of Dreams, "if you build it, they will come", and that is what has happen here in Toledo.  Maybe it's the Field, or maybe it's the town and the people around it! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why not plan a family trip to Toledo this spring or summer?  Tickets are priced at $8.00.  Kids 12 and under as well as seniors pay only $6.00.
