If you are planning a research trip to Northwest Ohio this summer or passing through our area on your way to the FGS Conference, there are many opportunities for research in the area.

Where to stay: There are many excellent and affordable hotels off of I-75 at the Bowling Green and Perrysburg exits south of Toledo. If you are traveling on the Ohio Turnpike there are several hotels near the Maumee Exit in South Toledo. A variety of restaurants are located near all three locations. 

As always, I suggest you visit websites to become familiar with the collections at the above locations. And, it is also a good idea to call and verify hours of operation.

Good luck with your research!
