Small towns all over the country claim to be the “Best in America,” but Maumee, Ohio, may have a legitimate claim to that. Even if you call home a place that’s a 1,000 miles off, you’ll feel like you never departed. A walk through the Arrowhead Park business district and visits into the cheeky stores lining the street help to validate this “down home” feeling.
And if you’re tempted to eat a German bratwurst in Columbus, 130 miles is all that separates you and a gastronomic paradise. But when it’s time to lay your head down for the night, there’s no better place to reclaim your inner peace than Maumee hotels.

The lush greenery provides an endless buffet of treats for Bambi and his friends. “Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” Since you just acquire all three in the Side Cut, make your way through the quaint streets of this typical Middle American town. It’ll be hard not to admire the old brick buildings—some still standing from the early 1900s—lining the asphalt.
