Where to stay in Akron

About Akron

Akron is located approximately 63 kilometres south of Downtown Cleveland and Lake Erie. It is the fifth largest city in the state of Ohio, located in the United States. The city is well known for its rubber tyre factories which grew the economy during the 1900s. These days, Akron is home to beautifully sculpted gardens, art museums, wildlife areas and interesting architecture.

Originally a canal town, Akron is divided by the Erie and Ohio canals. Paying homage to the city’s heritage and tyre factories, the pathways by the canals are paved with rubber. Explore Akron’s art deco style FirstMerit Tower, the city’s tallest structure. The 100-metre tower façade is an iconic city landmark. Culture lovers will enjoy exploring Akron Art Museum. The contemporary gallery is home to a collection of iconic artwork produced since the 1850s. Walk through the halls marvelling at Modernism, American Impressionism, Pop Art and Photorealism. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, lies Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens. It is the former American Country Estate of F.A Seiberling, co-founder of Goodyear Tyre and Rubber Company. The historic 65 room Tudor Revival Manor House, Gate Lodge and landscaped gardens are some of Akron’s most popular attractions. Akron Zoo is another family favourite. Enjoy photographing and visiting the penguins, bears and jaguars, or become a keeper for the day. Dining out in Akron can be an exciting experience too. From American Steakhouses to Italian cuisine, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.

Akron is easy to get around on foot or by local bus. Many parks, theatres, museums and libraries are easy to walk to. Buses operate throughout the Downtown neighbourhood and surrounding districts. Taxi and Uber are also available.

The city of Akron has been known as “Summit City”, the “Rubber Capital of the World” and the “City of Invention”.

With diverse architecture, which includes art deco movie theatres and skyscrapers, and an innovative history, the city is fascinating to explore.
