Extended! The Stay-at-Home orders have officially been extended in Ohio for another month, through May 29th, which means there’s still no going out to eat at restaurants, going to a movie theater, “It’s Friday” at Toledo Museum of Art, or any other “usual” Date Night destination. But that doesn’t mean Date Night has to be canceled! Here’s seven clever Date Night Ideas you can do in Toledo during quarantine.
Unholy Toledo Tour
Welcome to the Unholy Toledo Tour!
Are you ready for the inside story of Toledo’s unholiest gangsters, our infamous “Tenderloin” district and our city’s most notorious gambling halls — all from the comfort of your own vehicle?
Get ready for a unique trip back in time where you will:
WITNESS…Toledo as it was during the “unholy” years.
STAKE OUT…the hot spots and hit spots.
INVESTIGATE…historically accurate accounts of the exploits of the Licavoli Gang, Jack Kennedy, Jimmy Hayes and a cast of characters — major and minor, good and bad!
EXPLORE…the excitement of Toledo from World War I through the Prohibition Era to the end of World War II.
ENJOY…a journey into our past as we cruise the Glass City in search of the old hoodlum haunts, brothels, gambling dens and sites of gangland shootouts.
Your web-enabled smartphone or tablet will serve as your storytelling tour guide.
