Let’s be honest. Dessert is an essential part of a meal. In fact, it can become the sole purpose of an outing if you allow it to!

With so many wonderful dessert destinations in town, it’s only right that we compile a list of some of the best. That way, you can treat yourself to a donut, cupcake, ice cream cone, frozen yogurt cup, or a pastry when the next sugar craving strikes!

 

DONUTS

ICE CREAM

We’ve already covered our favorite ice cream shops in the area, but let’s zero in on two of our favorites.

 

Mr. G’s Barn

Mr. G’s Barn is a Toledo area staple, serving old-fashioned soft serve ice cream out of an actual barn. Watch your ice cream cone get piled up high with your flavor of choice, and eat it all before it melts! The ice cream at Mr. G’s Barn is low-fat yet bursting with rich flavor.

Black Kite Coffee and Pies

Arguably one of the best combinations is a cup of coffee and a sweet treat. There’s something about the contrast of sweet flavors of the dessert and the rich, hot coffee that will send your taste buds into overdrive. Black Kite Coffee and Pies is a great place to experience such a pair, as they serve their exceptional coffee in conjunction with a wide assortment of food — including sweet treats.

This independent and locally owned coffee house has been serving the Old West End neighborhood with exceptional service and products since 2012. They offer the Holey Toledough donuts we spoke of earlier, dangerously good sweet pancakes (like Sm’Oreo Pancakes!), and whatever else they decide to add to their ever-changing menu.

While the interior of a home is certainly important, you can’t deny that first impressions matter when looking at homes. For starters, the view from the curb is what neighbors see when walking or driving through the neighborhood. Plus, it helps you feel confident as a homeowner to know your home’s exterior and landscaping are in great shape.

Check out these homes in the Toledo area with impressive curb appeal because of their unique design elements, well-maintained landscaping, or overall picturesque look.

 

Lakeside Home With Neutral Tones

Toledo Area Homes With Amazing Curb Appeal

We love the basic, neutral gray tones of this Maumee home’s exterior. The clean-cut lines and well-maintained landscaping are very appealing to the eye! We wish backyard curb appeal was a factor, as the view from this home’s backyard lake is equally as impressive.

 

Timeless Brick Home With Stately Columns

Toledo Area Homes With Amazing Curb Appeal

There’s something so timeless and undeniably American about this Monclova home’s exterior. The stately columns, rich red brick and dark shutters work together to achieve this desirable look, complemented by pristine landscaping.

 

Perrysburg Home Overlooking a Pond

Fairytale-Like Home With Bright Blue Shutters

Toledo Area Homes With Amazing Curb Appeal

This home could very well be in a children’s fairytale book, for its Old World charm, rustic elements and ivy-covered walls in the backyard. It makes a wonderful first impression from the curb, especially because of the bright blue shutters that make it stand apart!

Toledo Area Homes With Amazing Curb Appeal

Sometimes less is more. That is certainly true for this Whitehouse home’s exterior, which consists of a calming blue paint color and striking white trim!

This Holland home is definitely out of the ordinary — particularly obvious when you’re standing outside. The sharp lines and unique structure draws us in, and we’ll stick around for the open living area, clawfoot bath tub in the master bathroom, and the pool in the backyard!

 

Which curb view is the most appealing?

We’d love to know what you think!

 
 

It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating the end of the school year, putting the backpacks in storage, and deleting the 6:30 a.m. alarm off our phones. But alas, the start of the school year is just around the corner and we must savor these last few days of summer and all its glory.

If you’re stumped on ways to help your kids enjoy the last few moments of summertime freedom, consult our list to help them maximize these final days. We included activities from all over Toledo and its surrounding communities, so you are sure to find one located near you!

Things To Do With Kids in the Toledo Area Before School Starts

Fossil Park — Sylvania, OH

Fossil Park in Sylvania is one of only two prime Devonian Era sites on the planet, filled with world-renowned fossils in a 5-acre quarry. Bring your own paint brush and bag to dust off and transport any fossils you find that you want to bring home! The kids will love discovering ancient relics dating back nearly 375 years, including fossilized brachiopods, coral, and more than 200 species of prehistoric life. Warm the kids up to the idea of learning before they return to school with this fun and interactive educational experience.

Fort Imagination Playground — Perrysburg, OH

If you have younger kids in your crew, a visit to the Fort Imagination playground at Woodlands Park in Perrysburg is the perfect way to let them get all of their energy out and enjoy the sunshine. This community-built play structure has been a popular destination for families since its inception in 2008. The rest of the park is worth exploring as a family, as it includes large grass areas, beautiful gardens, an 18-hole disc golf course, and several picnic tables and shelters.

Dive Into a Pool — Sylvania, Maumee + Perrysburg

During these final hot summer days, a trip to the pool seems like the perfect way to cool off. If you don’t have a pool in your own backyard, don’t fret! There are several pools in the Toledo area that provide an escape from the strong late-summer sun.

The Toledo Zoo & Aquarium — Toledo, OH

The next time your kids will see an elephant is in their science books once school is back in session.

Carmel’s Mexican Restaurant

We spend lots of time, money and energy renovating our kitchens, painting our living rooms and perfecting our backyard landscaping. While these updates are certainly important, there’s another space that is worth our attention. We spend lots of time each day getting ready for the day in our bathrooms, so it’s important to have a space that is clean, relaxing and pleasant to look at.

Let’s take a look at some master bathrooms in the area that inspire us!

 

Monclova Home With Majestic Master Bathroom

Why choose between a stand-up glass shower and a relaxing bath tub when you can have both? This Monclova home has a majestic master bathroom that we’re quite fond of, which utilizes neutral tones and high-quality finishes in a tasteful way.

Decorating a wall can be daunting. Sometimes a massive blank area calls for a larger art piece, but you’d rather not take out a loan to purchase that enormous painting you saw at the local art gallery. Or maybe you’re drawn to the more modern take on wallpaper, but can’t quite make the commitment to apply glue to your unsuspecting wall.

A wall tapestry just might be your solution! Take a look at these amazing tapestries for inspiration and conviction of this cost-effective yet statement-making design trend. They make wonderful additions to guest rooms, bedrooms, living rooms and kids’ rooms!
