If you’re hungry (or thirsty)…


Findlay Brewing Company

213 East Crawford Street

What better place to wet your whistle than at the first brewery in Hancock County? Whatever your taste in brew, there’s bound to be something for you here—in fact, you might just find a new favorite in their selection of “quirky and traditional” beers! And yes, there’s a full menu to go along with it.


Logan’s Irish Pub

414 South Main Street

Get a taste of Ireland without leaving Findlay! With a local take on traditional Irish fare (and a rotating menu of drafts on tap) Logan’s Irish Pub is a great way to branch out from your usual favorite restaurants and try something new. 


If you’re looking for the arts…


Painter’s Pottery

540 South Main Street, Suite E

Step 1: Pick out a piece of pottery from their varied collection.

Step 2: Choose your favorite paint colors and paint it however you like.

Step 3: Leave your pottery behind to be fired and finished.

Step 4: Pick up your new memory and take it home!


They also do parties, regularly schedule book and brush events, and offer a VIP membership that allows you to save money and create more often. 


Music Together

208 Broadway

Have an infant, toddler, preschooler, or kindergartener? Connect with them in enriching music classes full of singing, rhythm, movement, and social interaction! Register online to see current availability and save your place.


If you’re looking for action…


Axe Ventura

401 South Main Street

Looking for something different to do your next night on the town? It doesn’t get much more memorable than throwing axes with a few friends! With a private coach to give you pointers, you can let loose and still enjoy a safe experience. Just…leave the open-toed shoes at home. 


Gateway Plaza and the Riverwalk

As you travel the Blanchard River Greenway bike path, don’t forget to stop and enjoy the scenery along the downtown riverwalk and the Main Street Bridge. Take a picnic lunch or just take a breather at the gazebo!


If you just want to shop…


Post Board Gaming

441 East Sandusky Street

If you’re into board games or card games, this one is a can’t miss. It’s a little off the beaten path of downtown, but worth the extra minute or so of driving! Knowledgeable staff can point you toward anything from Dungeons and Dragons to a special version of Clue featuring your favorite characters from The Office.


Guitar Ranch

622 South Main Street

Maybe music is more your thing, and if that’s the case, you can buy, sell, and trade your musical gear right off Main Street at Guitar Ranch. They even offer lessons for children and teens—or you can pop in to ask about a repair if your favorite guitar has seen better days.
