Flashback Thursday: A One Night Stop In Maumee, Ohio

Maumee , Ohio is just beyond Toledo, Ohio. It is where we spent the second night of our trip to Rockford, Ill. which was a Saturday. I chose it for the ease of getting to a church since this can be one of the hard things to do when traveling. This location had two Catholic Churches within a very close drive. We chose St Joseph Catholic Church because the time of the Mass worked better. 

After Mass we went to the Maumee Antique Mall which was also close to our hotel. It was huge and stayed open until 8 p.m. on Saturdays. In August, the days are long and we didn't have to worry about getting back before dark. And yes, I did buy a few things, all very well priced. 

We stayed at a Courtyard by Marriott. It had a very nice location, next door to an Outback Steakhouse, within walking distance to Buffalo Wild Wings and a couple blocks from  Cracker Barrel so even though breakfast isn't included, you have options. Gas stations nearby as well to fill up before heading back to the Ohio Turnpike. 

I liked this stop very well. I am sure if I looked around I would have found a small interesting museum and the Toledo Art Museum is not a long drive. We enjoyed the pool and spa at our hotel, great way to relax.
