GRAB LIFE RIGHT HERE CITY LIFE. OUTDOOR LIFE.
Experience Akron/Summit County
Hot metropolitan places alongside cool outdoor spaces. You decide which vibe will satisfy — we’d like to think you’ll enjoy it all.
PIONEERING INDUSTRIALISTS. Rock Stars (Grammy Award winners and a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee). Outrageously Influential Inventors. Sports Phenoms (we’re sure a “certain someone” comes to mind immediately). Societal Thinkers and Contributors. Simply put: Just Really Cool People. Throughout history, these are the men and women who have called Akron/Summit County home.
Greater Akronites (aka Summit Countians) constructed a firm foundation upon which our community comfortably rests. Twenty-first century metropolitan places are adjacent to some of our nation’s most breathtaking natural spaces, resulting in an undeniably engaging combination of experiences.
Social, ethnic and cultural diversity planted deep roots when immigrants traveled from around the country to Greater Akron, seeking work on the canal. From those roots, an innovative spirit and an adamant conviction for dignity, rights and ideas quickly blossomed. In May 1851, Sojourner Truth attended the Ohio Women’s Rights Convention in downtown Akron and presented her world-famous “Ain’t I A Woman?” speech. Through hardships, the community has thrived, meeting the demands of a war and solidifying the region’s role on the national stage. B.F. Goodrich, the Quaker Oats Co. and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. were among the founders. Once known as the “Rubber Capital of the World,” the area still reigns as one of the world’s leading polymer centers, sets the pace for biomedical discoveries and celebrates a culture that only knows how to look forward!
Visitors and residents delight in the defiantly diverse arts, culture and entertainment offered here. Experience productions, films and concerts at community and professional theaters. Live entertainment, dance and world-class orchestras provide audiences hours of memorable performances. The Akron Art Museum boasts national and international modern artists, with other galleries showcasing neighboring communities. The sports scene is just as robust, with activities covering a spectrum of interests every season. We even have a ski resort! Take part in or play spectator to recreational pursuits, including: the FirstEnergy All-American Soap Box Derby, Kaulig Companies Championship and the Akron Marathon Race Series, presented by Summa Health.
Outdoor sporting sites round out the offerings with golf courses and racetracks, such as MGM Northfield Park’s horse racing.
Attractions in Greater Akron offer guests a glimpse into history — the homes, monuments and markers built with the wealth achieved from early industrial success. Hale Farm & Village lets visitors experience life during the mid-1800s, while Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, the former estate of Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. co-founder F.A. Seiberling, transports visitors into the world of an elegant 1915 English Tudorinspired mansion.
Greater Akron’s natural landscape promises incredible views and adventures. The area is not only home to Summit Metro Parks, but it proudly boasts Ohio’s only national park, Cuyahoga Valley National Park, for a combined footprint of nearly 50,000 acres. Get in touch with nature at the Akron Zoo by traversing the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail or riding the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (you can even bring your bike aboard).
Major malls, shopping centers and specialty outlets can be found in the area. Favorites include acclaimed Akron artist Don Drumm’s Studios & Gallery offering one-of-a-kind gifts for every occasion and Ohio’s largest purveyor of organic and wholesome products, Mustard Seed Market & Café. Foodie fanatics will never go hungry, and your palate will thank you for sampling the area’s array of delicious tastes.
Place your head on a pillow with accommodations to match every budget in all corners of the county, allowing you to rest (just enough) to hit the ground running for another day in Greater Akron!
IN NORTHEAST OHIO, NOTHING IS GIVEN. EVERYTHING IS EARNED. YOU WORK FOR WHAT YOU HAVE.

The Fun Flows Here
WHAT SURGES THROUGH US
FOR NEARLY 200 YEARS, Greater Akron, Ohio, has been the birthplace of ideas, systems, products and idioms that have had an unmistakably positive impact on the world and its citizens. Strategically settled, Akron’s geographical location has been leveraged throughout its history via waterways, road systems and air transport. Similarly, its ideagraphical locale has become a fertile landscape of inspiration and creation. Ideas have always flourished, bringing forth refinements and substantial advancements across every facet of our community’s output. This section is a brief glimpse at the common thread we call “akronicity,” to demonstrate its influence on our achievements across time. For the complete story, visit akronicity.com.
Each letter of Akronicity is from an iconic sign/company name, can you identify each? Answers on akronicity.com.
CAN’T BE HELD DOWN
IN 1917, GOODYEAR CREATED THE GOODYEAR ZEPPELIN COMPANY and began manufacturing zeppelins mainly as a way to advertise their products. Then in the 1930s, they built two airships for military use — the USS Akron and the USS Macon. In the early 1960s, the Goodyear Aerospace Corporation helped NASA develop heating and cooling systems for the Apollo spacecrafts, produced tires used on moon vehicles and created flotation devices for spacecrafts landing in water. Drive by the enormous Goodyear Airdock to see where the USS Akron and USS Macon were constructed.
HISTORY IN THE MAKING
GERTRUDE SEIBERLING BEGAN ATTENDING BUCHTEL COLLEGE when her husband’s business venture, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, became profitable. She studied architecture, gardening and interior design. She wanted to be able to assist in building the family’s new home — a 65-room Tudor style mansion they would call Stan Hywet — when construction began in 1912. Visit Stan Hywet Hall Gardens to learn more about the Seiberling family.
FOR YEARS, TOYS WERE ALL HANDMADE, making them available only to the children of wealthy families. In 1884, Samuel C. Dyke automated his Akron factory to mass-produce marbles, the first toy affordable for everyone. He then founded The American Marble & Toy Manufacturing Co. in the mid-1890s, which produced a million marbles a day and turned out dozens of other toys, including America’s oldest figurine of a Santa, pictured here. Visit the Akron Children’s Museum with the young ones to experience playful, interactive learning.
AS GERMAN IMMIGRANTS MOVED TO THE AREA IN THE EARLY DAYS OF AKRON, they introduced beer by opening the first breweries. In 1865, Fredrick Gaessler established Wolf Ledge Brewery. Later, he partnered with Wilhelm Burkhardt and the company became Burkhardt and Company. They resumed brewing beer after prohibition ended and continued to operate until the brewery was sold in 1956. The tradition of brewing continues on today as Akron is home to several breweries. Thirsty Dog Brewing is located in the Wolf Ledges area in the former headquarters of the Burkhardt Brewing Company. Visit Thirsty Dog Brewing, part of the #SummitBrewPath.
[ak-ruh-nis-i-tee) Noun. the innate creativity, tenacity and intellectual prowess that has and will continue to surge through the people of Akron, Ohio: embrace your akronicity and make your new ideas reality | akronicity is a uniquely, one-of-a-kind spirit of innovation and determination that only the people of Akron, Ohio possess. ORIGIN: Settled in 1825 — Akron from the Greek “an elevation” or “point” / icity (you’re wondering) is the sweat, tears, joy, steadfastness, grit, passion and smarts that are the foundation of the community we celebrate today and what will propel us into the future.

A WORLD OF TASTE MAKERS
The story of food and drink in Akron is the story of people who immigrated to the area from different parts of the world.
As German immigrants moved to the area in the early days of Akron, they opened the first breweries, a tradition that continues on today with breweries such as Thirsty Dog Brewing.
While selling concessions at a fair in Hamburg, New York, in 1885, German-descended Akronites Frank and Robert Menches ran out of pork sausage for their sandwiches and switched to ground beef. They named the sandwich after the fair, calling it a “Hamburg.” Bob’s Hamburg opened in 1931, and Swenson’s opened in 1934. Immigrants from all over the world continue to choose Akron, bringing the flavors of home with them, from Thai to Nepalese and many more.
Akron’s palette of flavors continues to expand.
