Region Description
With mile upon mile of shorelines, islands and riverbanks shaping the terrain almost wherever you turn, the Toledo Region abounds in striking geographies and abundant nature. More species of freshwater fish and birds make their home here than just about anywhere else in the nation, and an impressive string of parks and reserves makes all this wildlife readily accessible.

Generations of the region’s residents and their neighbors recognized their region’s rare combination of opportunity and beauty and made the commitment to strike deep, lasting roots here. The cultural and social investments they made, and the distinctive neighborhoods and communities they created, remain to welcome new generations today.

For people looking for a true sense of belonging in an era of upheaval and change, the Toledo Region extends a particular welcome. Here, the remarkable combination of affordability and accessibility that one finds only at rare moments and places converges to create a quality of life that others can only dream of.

And that’s entirely right for a region that will attract and retain the best talents from elsewhere as well as within as the heart of the New Manufacturing Economy, where good ideas can reach global proportions, and life can be good every step of the way.
