Akron is a classic midwest city in Ohio home to friendly, hardworking people, several interesting museums and beautiful gardens. It's also famous for being the hometown of NBA superstar Lebron James.
Top things to do include visiting the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, which is a Tudor Revival manor house with beautiful gardens, viewing modern art at the Akron Art Museum and finding out more about life in the 19th century at the Hale Farm and Village, which has restored buildings and gardens.
If you like exploring the great outdoors, head to the Cuyahoga River, where you can fish, boat and kayak. In the past the river was known to be so polluted that it caught fire in the 1960s, but today it’s a peaceful spot with clean water.
