U.S. city located where the Maumee River flows into Lake Erie. At one time Toledo was a major manufacturing center known as the glass capital of the world. Today the city's reputation has flagged, though it remains a diverse and vital place. Toledo has a marvelous library. Its impressive art museum houses a notable collection of glassware. The first hippoquarium, a water-filled glass enclosure for viewing submerged hippopotami, can be found at the Toledo Zoo.

Toledoans cheer on the University of Toledo Rockets and the Toledo Mud Hens, a minor league baseball team made famous (along with the local eatery Tony Packo's) by the character Klinger on the TV show M*A*S*H.

Also a place to which I commuted for 10 years, one hour each way… I have an odd, intimate familiarity with this place, which has never been my home.
