Hi, I am from Detroit and have been on a few dates with a nice young lady who lives in Toledo. I asked her what are the trendy, hip areas of Toledo - those neighborhoods/districts with a concentration of boutiques, bars, restaurants, etc. She said that there really aren't any except for downtown. So I am asking other city-data Toledo posters - what are cool, vibrant, urbane, hip areas of Toledo and the surrounding areas. Thanks!

I haven't lived in Toledo for 10 years but still visit frequently. I agree with her assessment. Aside from downtown there aren't really any boutique business districts in city limits. The Old West End has the sort of demographic you're talking about, but not much in the way of shops or restaurants. Uptown has a few cool bars, but in other cities it would barely be worth a mention.

Some of the suburban downtowns like Perrysburg or Maumee might be the closest thing to what you're looking for.

Yeah thats whats unfortunate here in Toledo. We have a decent amount of places like what your asking, just not collected into any kind of walkable, hip, neighborhood or business district....besides downtown. Different neighborhoods are trying and have the slightest little bit of progress happening but nothing really outstanding.

Theres lots of areas that have the bones to become awesome neighborhoods, where the spaces that would be desirable for development or revitalization are just waiting for someone to make it happen. I would say the old South End (broadway), East Toledo (Main&Starr), Vistula (Summit&Lagrange), Polish Village (Lagrange), Point Place (Summit), Library Village (Sylvania Ave), Deveaux (Sylvania Ave), Harvard Terrace (Glendale), and all around the University campus (Dorr, Secor, Bancroft) are all areas that can be nice urban districts with some investment.
