West

If you’re coming to Toledo, there’s a good chance it’s for a college visitation. As you navigate through the west side on your way to the University of Toledo’s 1,400-acre campus, you’ll travel through some of the city’s most historic neighborhoods. UT is bordered by Old Orchard, home to the Westgate Village Shopping Center and its vast selection of restaurants and retail shops.

There’s also the Old West End, where every home has a story, and it uses unique, timeless architecture to tell it. If you happen to be here the first week of June, the annual Old West End festival gives you the chance to tour these iconic homes and get a taste of the arts and culture that have endured this part of town for generations.

The area’s natural beauty is on display throughout the Village of Ottawa Hills. Visitors and residents enjoy the quiet streets and quaint homes built on the strength of a community that’s uniquely connected to its foundation and heritage.

Speaking of natural beauty, the Wildwood Preserve Metropark gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy 493-acres of trails, trees, and terrain.

Make the most out of your trip by planning ahead. See all there is to see in West Toledo using the tool below.
