Tony Packo's Cafe

Tony Packo's & Toledo Art Museum

Our trip will begin at the historical Tony Packo's Café.  Tony Packo was a native East Toledoan and started out as a factory worker. That all changed when, in 1932, he and his wife got a $100 loan from relatives. That year he opened a sandwich and ice cream shop just around the corner from the place he was born.  Because Tony was Hungarian-American his creation was called the Hungarian hot dog.  Until he had invented it, there was no such thing as a Hungarian hot dog, say those who know the Old Country's food.  Packo's food was an instant hit in the neighborhood.

Tony Packo’s was put on the map by Jamie Farr's mouth on a Feb. 24, 1976 episode of "M*A*S*H.” Farr, a native Toledoan, appeared playing Corporal Max Klinger, a crazy medical corpsman who was also from Toledo. In the episode, a man playing a television newsman talked to Klinger about his hometown. Farr replied, "If you're ever in Toledo, Ohio, on the Hungarian side of town, Tony Packo's got the greatest Hungarian hot dogs. Thirty-five cents..."

Once again fame struck for Tony Packo’s.  Burt Reynolds was playing "The Rainmaker" at a local auditorium, and Tony Sr.'s daughter got a notion to get him into her restaurant. Reynolds was the first big name to eat at Packo's and sign a hot dog bun, thus the tradition of "bun signing" began, and has continued to this day.  Make sure to stop in the Bun Hall of Fame.

The Toledo Museum of Art was founded April 18, 1901. More than a century later, the Toledo Museum of Art is considered one of the finest museums in the country. Thanks to the benevolence of its founders, as well as the continued support of its members, the Toledo Museum of Art remains a privately-endowed, non-profit institution and opens its collection to the public.

The Museum continues to grow in the early years of its second century. Extensive renovation to the main building, the refurbishment of the Professional Arts Building, the installation of the Georgia & David K. Welles Sculpture Garden, and the Glass Pavilion are all signs that the Toledo Museum of Art continues to evolve in order to fulfill its mission, “To integrate art into the lives of people.”

Sisters Tea Room

Sisters Tea Room & Garfield Memorial

A front porch can serve many purposes. For some, a place to enjoy the breeze on a warm summer night. For others, a perch from which to keep eyes on what's happening in their neighborhood. In 1880, James Garfield used his front porch as a platform to greet thousands of well-wishers during his presidential campaign. Today, the porch serves as a gateway to the story of the Garfield family.  A tour of the house in Mentor will offers museum exhibits chronicling the life of James A. Garfield, from canal boy to President; allows walking of the grounds to explore the remaining parts of the Garfield's 160 acre farm. In addition, the Garfield Home tour, offered with a ranger or volunteer, takes you back in time to the 1880's, the height of the Victorian era. Beautifully restored to how it looked when the Garfield family walked its' halls, the home contains 80% original furnishings that belonged to James Garfield and his family.
Sisters Tea Room offers a B&B style breakfast and traditional tea menu.  In true fashion the house is actually run by sisters.  Sisters who are of English, Scottish and Italian heritage and have a love of good food and time-honored traditions.  Since childhood, they grew to appreciate fresh food in their home and spent many hours in the kitchen and, of course, at the dinner table.  Let them create a relaxed atmosphere for you to savor family, friends and food.

Schmidt's Sausgae Haus

Columbus Zoo Wildlights & Schmidt's Sausage Haus

Born just north of Frankfurt Germany, J. Fred Schmidt journeyed to America and settled in south Columbus in the early 1880’s. Opening the J. Fred Schmidt Meat Packing House in 1886 in the heart of German Village, Schmidt’s became Central Ohio’s most well-known name in meats and is to this day sold in leading grocery stores around the country.  J. Fred’s grandson, George F. Schmidt, opened the company’s first restaurant in July of 1967 just around the corner from his grandfathers’ meat packing plant in German Village. Using meat recipes from the packing days and dessert recipes from the German ladies hired to run the kitchen, Schmidt’s Sausage Haus became an instant success. Schmidt’s is still a landmark eatery in Central Ohio.  Today, the family tradition of day-to-day operations of this uniquely diverse hospitality company is carried out by the fourth generation of the Schmidt family. The Schmidt name is recognized throughout central Ohio and the nation as a leader in quality specialty restaurants, catering and unequaled banquet facilities as well as retail sales and fair and festival food services.
Not only home to Jack Hanna and numerous cute, cuddly and exotic animals, the Columbus Zoo opens their Holiday season with their traditional Wildlights exhibit.  With over 3.5 million lights stretched over the entire zoo, the park is transformed into a magical wonderland.  Starting at 5:00 PM, there is a light show at the central pond every 15 minutes.  All the animals that would normally be out, will be out looking at the lights as well.  The Columbus Zoo offers many animals from many continents, with many outdoor and indoor exhibits – including the impressive Shores & Aquarium.
