*Frightened screams* What are you doing?! Just grabbing a late night munch! ...Why are you sneaking in this late? I just had the best day ever. I just wish I could tell somebody about it... Can I tell you about it? Umm, you have until I finish this watermelon. Perfect! Okay, so we're eating breakfast in Ottawa dining hall, right? And we're trying to figure out what to do today, and everybody has all these ideas, and then suddenly, it dawned on me: there's actually a lot to do in Toledo! Let's do it all! So first, we hit up the Metroparks. Toledo has over 20 area parks, and they're perfect for walking, running, or hitting the trails on a bike. We were feeling a bit adventurous so we dropped a couple kayaks in the Maumee River. After that, we went frolfing... Uhh... we played some grisbee? You know, frisbee golf. Whatever you want to call it. There's a free course right by campus at Ottawa Park. And since we were pulling out all the stops, we stopped by the Toledo Zoo. We pet the fish at the aquarium, gawked at some insects, and walked the Tembo Trail. Ugh... yeah... that was gross. But nothing a trip to the mall couldn't fix! With over 170 shops and restaurants, we were guaranteed to find something to replace that splattered shirt with. And by that time, we were starving. By the way, can I get a bite of your melon? Fine. Thank you! Toledo is a hotspot for coffee shops, as well as pizza, burgers, tacos, and pretty much anything you could imagine! We couldn't decide whether to get Bubble Tea or Mr. Freeze so we did both! With a belly full of food, we headed over to the Toledo Museum of Art. There's over 30,000 works of art, and glass blowing demonstrations open to the public. It was a great time. We were nearly jumping for joy! But, since jumping in the museum isn't a great idea, we hit up SkyZone instead. We had a lot of fun, even though we spent half the time pulling out Robby from the foam pit. By that time, the Mud Hen's game was about to start, so we settled in, and cheered them on as they ran the bases and shut out the visiting team. We celebrated the win in Hensville by grabbing a drink and listening to some live music. There's nothing better than hitting up Hensville's bars, restaurants, and shops after a Mudhen's or Walleye game. But no night is complete without some dancing, and Chasers is one of the best places in Toledo to get down. We danced the night away Until Robby pulled his hamstring. And then I came home, and you asked what I did today and I told you! Huh. Are you sure you did that all in one day? What are you guys going to do tomorrow? I don't know, there's still so much to do! We can go to Tam-O-Shanter and go ice skaing, or we can even go to the Botanical Gardens. Oh! We could always drive-- Here. Hold this. Where are you going? Bed. Goodnight! Goodnight.

According to a 2015 article, there were three Toledo companies that made the Fortune 500 list. #399 is Owens-Illinois (O-I), which specializes in glass and glass packaging. #410 was Dana Corporation which is a global leader in the supply of thermal-management technologies among many other specialties. Lastly, at #498, Owens Corning is the world leading provider of glass fiber technology.[1] Just outside of the Toledo metropolitan in neighboring Findlay, Ohio, #25 Marathon Petroleum Corporation is headquartered.

The economy of Toledo has been heavily influenced by both the economy of nearby Detroit and agriculture. Recently, health care and technology firms have tried to make their way into the metropolitan, though growth in those sectors has been slow. Instead, Toledo and its suburbs are still home to several manufacturing and construction businesses and factories. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported, in 2015, that manufacturing employment in Toledo had grown by 4.1% between December 2013 and December 2014 (this was double the rate than the United States average). More so, construction job growth grew by nearly 10% in the same time period. In 2014, manufacturing added 1,700 jobs to the Toledo area, but it also saw losses in the business services. In 2014, the US Census Estimated there were roughly 285,000 people employed in the Toledo metropolitan area.[2] In August 2015, it was reported that Toledo's unemployment rate reached a 10-year low, and in June 2015 just 5% of the regional population was unemployed, whereas the United States average unemployment was at 5.3% during the same period.[3]
