Moving to Toledo

If there's a positive to it (and I'm really going out on a limb here) the money you save on housing, you'll be free to spend on alcohol.

There are a shit lode of $20K small houses that look to be in decent shape.

 

Interdasting.  The term formerly known to me as "shitload" may be making more sense etymologically.

The little airport there use to be nice, but since Delta pulled out, it's now shit.

Lots of morbidly obese people.

Red state (for now).

I will probably have to move up there in a few years due to wife's family, but am thinking maybe Michigan instead since it's blue and now has weed.  But, Michigan roads suck.  I'd still drive across Ohio to the Cleveland airport than deal with shit hole Detroit airport.

DTW was surprisingly functional the last few times Ive been through it.

Then again my point of reference for comparison lately has been MSP and O'Hare, so maybe I'm just not used to decent airports anymore. 

Dont mind the red state stuff and the fat people things might get annoying.

Both of the terminals (Delta and Other) at DTW are new within the past maybe 10-12 years. Both laid out smartly, decent shops and restaurants. And obviously it's a Delta hub so tons of direct flights, even overseas.

My brother went to Toledo for his master's because of the funding they offered, stuck around as an adjunct for a little while afterwards. We went to Cleveland for a wedding and he found the vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere refreshing. I don't know much about Toledo, but if it makes peoole say that about Cleveland, it can't have much to offer.

That said, SD sucks too so you'd be moving to a cheaper shit hole at least.

Surprisingly Cleveland is really cool downtown on 4th street and the river and the young/cool area near the stadium.

I flew into DTW and drove in the ice and storm to Toledo the other week. Perrysburg or Maumee seemed okay. I was doing some consulting for a large agribusiness (a smaller ADM or Cargill), and spent a few weeks there. Some of the millennials I met said it was cool and up and coming with craft breweries and hipster-like cultures setting in...

Avoid Tony Packos or whether the Hungarian hot dog place is; totally overrated.

La Mexicana looks like it might have possibilities.

If you visit a Mexican grocer in Toledo, go straight to the shart thread.

Dude it’s Ohio, of course they have a Kroger. Kroger is HQ’ed in Cincinnati. Toledo probably has a Meijer too which rule.

Millinnials and Centennials are breathing new life into a lot of older rust belt cities as the cost of living is attractive for them.

La Mexicana and La Michoacan are all over the Midwest.  The Latinos did not stop in the Southwest. You can find a Mexican restaurant with futbol on the screens most places in the US these days.

Thanks, I didn’t know my Mexican family made it to Chicago.  My point was Toledo has around 10-15k Mexican folks in its city limits.  That’s pretty low for a city of that size meaning there’s not gonna be a great supply chain of quality ethnic foods.

I'm just impressed there's a Mexican market instead of 1/4 of 1/2 an aisle at Kroger.

You're right.  That is progress actually...or Krogress...

As a resident of one of the whitest States in the union, I can attest. Our local joint has ESPN Depotes and enchiladas al carbon that you'd die for.

Oh I'm familiar with Cleveland. I've been numerous times with how much family I have in the area. Cleveland can be a decent place to live, but no one would/should get excited about it. Toledo had that effect.

I went down that river once when I was a kid. There's a place in the river, I can't remember...must have been a gardenia plantation, or a flower plantation at one time. It's all wild and overgrown now. But for about five miles, you'd think that heaven just fell on the earth, in the form of gardenias.

So dumb question but how often does the Maumee River flood on the south side of Toledo metro? Down to Ottawa Hills, Holland (maybe) Maumee and Sylvania neighborhoods.

 

Will head out there in March to look a little harder on locations and what not.
