Perrysburg, OHNice town that surrounded by crappy ones
I've lived in Perrysburg for 10 years. The town itself is decent, shopping is super close and the town is well taken care of. However, the winters here are awful and being just across the river from Toledo Ohio isn' t so great.
Bedford, MISo Overrated
Ah.. Bedford TWP Michigan, just over the state line from Toledo Ohio. I grew up here and it's totally overrated. The School's are very overrated for what they are, in fact everything about this place is overrated.
If your kids don't play sports, your nobody. If you don't kiss up to some of the self righteous people that seem to run things in Bedford, again your nobody. Very Cliquish. Snooty people.
Dismal Grey Miserable Place to live!
I feel your pain John, I've lived in this hole of an area all my life. I live in Perrysburg but still am shackled to Toledo. I'm so sick of it.
Toledo, OHThe absolute Pits
I was born and raised in The Toledo area, I grew up just over the state line in Bedford twp MI, which is considered a suburb of Toledo. Every bad thing you have heard about this city is true. The Climate is awful, terrible weather 7-8 months of the year.
Ton's of boarded up buildings, roads are in terrible shape, and the downtown is a crime ridden ghost town, all that's missing are tumble weeds. The only thing downtown has to offer is The Mudhen stadium, if your into sports. However, when there is a game, good luck finding a parking spot.
The local government in Toledo and Lucas county are totally incompetent, The People here are very close minded and stuck in there ways, anything new or different is shunned. All people seem to care about is Drinking and watching sports. The mentality of the people here is very stuck in the past as well, always hanging onto some old "used to be, a lot of bitterness. Way too many attitude problems and narcissism. Many Rude and Conceded people live here.
Another problem is, the airport is just about useless. You have to drive over an hour to Detroit to fly anyplace. Also, lack of diverse shopping, again an hour to Detroit or 3 hours to Columbus.
I've come to the conclusion that things are never going to change, at least not in my lifetime. I am almost 40 and am working on trying to find a way out of here, I don't want to live here anymore. The Incompetence, crime, rude people, the blight, and weather. Don't come here!
