Renaissance Toledo Downtown Hotel

Rikki Teeters

We always love exploring Toledo. From Oak Openings Preserve to Maumee Bay State Park, Toledo has everything that an adventurous soul desires. However, we always find it difficult to find somewhere to stay during our Toledo trips. When we heard about the new Renaissance Hotel in Downtown Toledo, we knew we had to check it out.

The Toledo Renaissance Hotel features a roof top bar, a top rated restaurant, and beautiful city views. We enjoyed relaxing in the hotel after a day full of adventures.

We stayed on the highest residential floor during our visit to the Toledo Renaissance Hotel. Our room allowed us to see stunning views of Toledo, as far as the eye could see.

When we woke up, our views had turned foggy but just as beautiful. We loved seeing Toledo from a new view point.

Summer Block Party at The Toledo Museum of Art

Rikki Teeters

One of our favorite spots in Ohio is The Toledo Museum of Art! Last weekend we hosted an Instameet at the Summer Block Party! Thousands of locals gathered behind the art museum to enjoy performances, music, and delicious street food! We loved seeing the community come together to enjoy a summer evening. It was beautiful!

Oak Openings Preserve Metropark

Rikki Teeters

This beautiful public park is located near Toledo, Ohio. Oak Openings Preserve Metropark was recently made famous by a group of popular Instagrammers in the Toledo area. One of those awesome local Instagrammers is @oldmansiggy. He led us around Oak Openings to an area locals call "The NW Ohio Spot" at our March 2017 Instameet.
