That actually would depend on which part of Toledo you call "house" (from your posts, it appears you don't call any of it "home"). East Toledo, Oregon or Perrysburg might be closer. South Toledo, it could be Perrysburg or Maumee. And there is also the Maumee Indoor Theater at the corner of Conant Street and the Anthony Wayne Trail. That one has been there since 1946 (except for a time when it was closed).

Toledo suffers from the same things most of the nation suffers from. Portside was great, I was at BGSU from 1985 to 1989. The events at Portside in 1985-1987 were great... but I sensed it falling apart after that. It attracted college kids and I suppose high school kids to fun festivals and cheap date activities. But aside from some Steve's Ice Cream, and a slice of Pizza, I never bought a casete tape or poster, who caries stuff like that around on a Saturday night. We looked at stuff but that's all we did and bought a scoop of ice-cream.
I now own a building in Lafayette Indiana, it's a nice base of operation for my photo-business (also a dying trade)... people say do this, do that, but in the end I see businesses come and go around me because people like to look on Saturdays but "Platitudes and compliments" do not pay the rent. Portside failed because nobody was willing to pay the rent... buy expensive do dads that you don't need. Pizza and Ice-cream and a burger were about all that could be sold reliably. Don't feel bad. I love the Toledo Museum of Art and Paco's and come around now and then, cheers Toledo, I enjoyed my time near you.

Don't blame Toledo for the failure of Portside. The festival marketplace (the generic name for this type of attraction, with lookalike developments built all over the country in the mid-1980s - other examples were Trappers Alley in Detroit and Jackson Brewery in New Orleans) did not find long-term success anywhere. The novelty of food courts and overpriced knicknacks wore off quickly.

Las Vegas: 1 in every 299

Toledo, OH: 1 in every 424

Keep trying to sell everyone on how much better things are in Vegas. Let us all know when the housing market in Vegas finally crawls back out of tank.

Las Veags is growing so fast, they have already planned citites and areas out of the city.

The new marina is really nice, but they couldn't find anyone to run it, I guess, plus that hideous building across the street that they're tearing down slowly but slowly is a huge eyesore. But, now that the Schoomnaker is there, something is definitely happening. We've been down there a few times in the last month or so, and there were workers on the ship, and there was some kind of work going on out in front of it, too.

I sure hope Dashing Pacific or somebody releases some concrete plans for the Marina District sooner than later. I get the feeling that a lot of people are already giving up on it.
