Night Life

SATURDAY NIGHT — Press your luck on the slots at Hollywood Casino or dance to some great music in their H Lounge. Grab a late night martini or craft cocktail at Social Gastropub. Wind down with a walk under the lights at the Town Center at Levis Commons before heading back to your hotel after a fun filled day.

Breakfast of Champions

SUNDAY BRUNCH — Bacon & eggs, waffles, parfaits or pancakes? Luckily, you can have any or all of the above whether you are an early riser or late sleeper. Sip on bottomless mimosas at Manhattan’s Sunday brunch buffet or grab a quick bite at Star Diner.

New at the Zoo

SUNDAY MORNING — Before leaving town, the Toledo Zoo and Aquarium is a must see. The newly renovated aquarium houses over 3000 aquatic animals in 178,000 gallons of water. Feeling adventurous? Why not try out the touch tank containing various stingrays and small sharks, or hop on the new aerial rope and zip line course? If adrenaline is not your thing, you can make some major memories feeding the Zoo’s Masai giraffe herd or the parakeets in the Keet Retreat.
