Tony Packo's Cafe
A Toledo icon from the very beginning, Tony Packo's has been serving authentic Hungarian food in the Toledo area since 1932. Tony Packo's offers a delicious selection, from Sweet Hot Pickles to the signature Packo's Chili Hot Dog. Packo's food was an instant hit in the Hungarian/American neighborhood. Within months of opening, Tony and Rose knocked out a wall and expanded their first shop, in what is now called the Consaul Tavern.

By 1935, success had taken them to the point where they could buy a building of their own. They purchased the wedge-shaped establishment at Front and Consaul. The building houses part of today's Tony Packo's, but with a few more additions. The restaurant is still owned and operated by the Packo family, producing the same incredible hot dogs and dog sauce from generations of Toledo immigrants past.

Toledo Zoo
In 1900, a single woodchuck was donated to the City of Toledo’s Parks Board. From that act of generosity, a great institution emerged, one that has become virtually synonymous with Toledo. The Toledo Zoo is now widely regarded as one the finest zoological institutions in the nation. It is not only the region’s number one attraction, but it is also recognized as a leader in animal conservation. It has become an integral part of the Toledo community and a draw for animal lovers from all over.

The popularity of the Zoo has increased dramatically over the last twenty years. Restored facilities, new exhibits and a concerted effort to address the needs of the visitor have resulted in an average attendance of 875,000 people each year, with over 1,000,000 visitors in 1988, 1994, and 1999. Today, The Toledo Zoo is home to over 9,000 animals representing over 800 species. It’s one of the world’s most complete zoos—it’s also the region’s top family destination!
