Find the secret forest
Stroll through the gardens and larger-than-life art exhibits of the Toledo Botanical Gardens before letting the little ones loose in the “Secret Forest,” a two-story playhouse reached by wooden and rope bridges. It’s FREE family fun!
Go to a Mudhens game

Dive into Lake Erie
Maumee Bay State Park’s landscape is a unique environment created by the convergence of land and Lake Erie. The park includes two sandy beaches — on the shore of Lake Erie and along the inner lake of the park. Toilets and outdoor showers are provided between the two beaches.
