Toledo, OH


Dismal Grey Miserable Place to live! - 2/26/2019
Okay I'm sure that there are simple minded apologists and Toledo fanatics out there who just absolutely love living in this dismal dreary hell hole. That's great you stay here.... I'm leaving! I have lived in the Toledo area and surrounding Northwest Ohio for 55 years. Needless to say I was bored with the area decades ago but stayed put because of two things, my kids and because this place has a way of thinking its talons into you and not letting go. Now finally at age 55 with my kids in their teens we are moving to Arizona. There is no perfect place in the world to live but Toledo Ohio has seen its best days and they will never ever return! Not only is the weather horrible 7 months out of the year with cold rainy icy snowy crap, but then on top of that you have a bad economy, and nothing to do. Yes I know there's a great zoo and a great museum. There are better in museums and better zoos too around the country. There are three things basically to do in the city. Eat, go to the zoo, visit the museum. and the winter time you are shit out of luck. You can't escape no matter which way you drive unless you're willing to drive 11 hours or more. The people are largely uneducated racist lowlifes. They are here because they were born here and are stuck. There are some better people too, who are here because job of situations etc. I can't stand the people who keep coming on these sites and and praising Ohio and Toledo greatness because there isn't any. Toledo's economy sucks big-time! That's why housing is so cheap here. It can barely afford to pay its bills and always gets on one of the most miserable City lists in the nation. My advice run away and don't ever look back! Anybody who lives in this area and likes it either has never lived anywhere else, has never visited any place else, or is just plain stupid.

Toledo: Better than its Reputation

No place is a glittering Paradise but Toledo sucks ass and you sound like an Ohio or Toledo cheerleader. If you like it stay put. We're getting out! After living in this city for dozens of years it is finally time to move on to better places to live! Toledo will never change! It's a city filled with crime, stupid people, and those who have to be here for some reason like maybe a job. Awful place live. 7 months of crappy weather each year! Get out of this hell-hole while you still can!

It ain't horrible

You're delusional. This place is not get better because people move out. what do you mean by bounce back? Toledo hasn't been back since the 1960s! If you're waiting for a bounce back forget it! Toledo is a cheap-ass place to live because it has horrible weather 7 months out of the year and the people are a bunch of dumbasses who have nothing else on their mind except which college team is currently winning. There are no jobs blue collar or otherwise, unless you're a physician or a lawyer to treat all the sick people or handle all the disability cases here. Toledo sucks ass and is for losers and if you settle here you'll regret it one day because it's like trying to get out of prison. Run don't look back!

Toledo "jobs"

Yes it's great if you're into healthcare blah blah blah they have a museum blah blah blah they have a zoo blah blah blah guess what after the zoo and Museum there's nothing else to do and you'll be bored out if your skull while being surrounded by a bunch of racist stupid ass college sports junkies who have nothing else on their mind except which team is currently winning. It's a pathetic awful gross place to live with horrible weather 7 months out of the year. the reason they have so much booming healthcare system here is because everybody's sick. All people do is sit around and fast food restaurant chains happy you're eating and getting obese.
Toledo sucks ass! Run don't look back!

re:
Bad vibe living here like doing time

Everything you said is true and more. Ohio and Toledo suck ass and balls. The people are racist pigs sitting around trying out the latest fast food craze, getting fat or obese, smoking and getting ready to die. There is nothing to do except the zoo and the museum and a few metroparks plus the weather sucks 7 months out of the year. Anybody who lives here and likes it either has a mental disorder, is a stupid ass, or has never lived anywhere else or been anywhere to compare. we're getting out this summer moving to Arizona..

sorry but you sound like one of those Ohio cheerleaders we haven't lived or been too many other places.
Here's my take on Toledo.

Dead downtown with a bunch of worn-out warehousing. A new ball field and a concert arena does not make a downtown great when there's hardly anybody there except for those two things if an event is happening.

A respectable small art Museum. After you've been there a dozen times you'll get sick of it fast.

So so metroparks nothing exciting no great hiking all them too close to the road and you can hear a traffic noise in each one.. good luck enjoying them because of the crappy awful weather 7 months per year.

Easy commute for sure.. there's not a lot of traffic normally that's because lots of people left this town and no one wants to live here which is why housing is so inexpensive.


Farmers markets are good but so are they in other parts of the country.


The Toledo zoo is wonderful but it's not enough to keep adults amused for more than a few times a year if it that.

Not trying to be an a-hole or to be harsh but Ohio sucks in general and Toledo sucks harder except for Cleveland maybe. Toledo is the illegitimate child of Detroit and Cleveland. It is filled with racist small-minded people with nothing to do except sit around in restaurants 7 months out of the year when you can't get outside, eating and getting fat, smoking and dying of boredom...they actually like it that way.. It's a dismal awful place to live. Yes you can buy a nice house and make it your refuge but if you stay here believe me you will regret it one day. It is hard to get out of this area once it sinks its talons into you. We are finally getting out and it has been a monumental struggle! My advice run the hell away and don't look back.

NYC Transplant to Toledo

You are most certainly correct that Toledo is not the worst place you could possibly live but it is among the worst in the nation. It probably is not so bad if you are here for a short time. And you're correct that for adults it is dismal. The number of things that an adult can do within a 1 hour drive are very restrictive. Yes there's a great zoo and a museum and a symphony. I've lived in this area, both Southeastern Michigan and northwestern Ohio my entire life. I have a different perspective than someone who's been here a short time. Most people who live here were born here and are stuck or they are here not by choice... perhaps a job. After living here for a number of years you'll begin to understand how dismally awful it is being stuck in the house 7 months out of the year because of crappy, cold, icy, snowy, rainy, foggy weather. You will run out of things to do and you will get so sick of doing them that you would rather go anywhere to escape. We are finally making the move away from this dismal wasteland this summer by moving to Arizona. There is no such thing as a perfect place to live but there are places that make you want to puke and Toledo is one of them as is the entire state of Ohio. Ohio in general sucks ass. The cultural climate here is one revolving around which sports team is currently your favorite Ohio State or Michigan. It is like a mental disease in this part of the country. College football is about all these dumb nitwits think about. As for me and my kids we're leaving for a better future as there are no jobs to be had and the weather is enough to make anyone depressed especially anyone who suffers from seasonal affective disorder. There are basically two things to do in this town after you've used up the three things they have, the zoo, museum and metro Parks. They are eat and sleep. that's why this town is one of the testing grounds for new fast-food joints there everywhere!. Many people here are gross obese uneducated racist pieces of shit and they almost all smoke. And it's not like you can get in your car and drive a couple hours and get away from it either because it's the same in either direction for a whole day's drive. My advice don't put down roots here unless you want to be miserable. Ohio has a way of sinking its talons into you and it's very difficult to escape like a fish trying to wriggle its way off a hook.
