Best: Toledo's a great town if you can live off-peak. We never have to wait for tables at restaurants, traffic is always fairly smooth for me, Costco and Fresh Market keep me off of the grocery-store treadmill.
Having said that, I'm a bit apprehensive about the Whole Foods plaza. And adding New Kroger to Secor just a few hundred yards away is going to harsh my mellow vibe.
I've learned to avoid that whole Central-475-Monroe interchange area just for general quality-of-life purposes. Trash blown into chain link fences, panhandlers, people who change lanes in the middle of an intersection, and others who creep forward and create gridlock when the lights change. I don't seem to encounter that level of unpleasantness in other West Toledo intersections.
