Mantua actually has two areas you have Mantua Village and then there is Mantua Township. There are still quite a few family farms in the area. It is more country than city life. There are a couple of banks, and Church's in the area, along with one fast food restaurant. The Village also has a good Old fashion meat market and Drug store. There is also in the Village Headwaters Hike -n-Bike trail. If you want to take the kids to a park you can always go to Buchert Park in the Village. Some of the local Farms such as Guyette Farms still do a corn maze in the fall along with hay rides. However Mantua is best know for the Potato Festival with a parade and carnival rides in July and then in the Fall there is the Mantua Ox Roast hosted by St. Josephs Church.
