Since the end of the 20th century, Akron has largely reinvented itself and retained its status as one of the prime cities of the Midwest. Known for years as the rubber capital of the world, Akron’s economy has shifted in recent years with the rise of a high-tech polymer industry in town and a massive healthcare sector.

Many excellent public schools around town give the local parents numerous great options for their children. The University of Akron heavily influences the city’s culture, between the Zips sporting events and arts community on campus and the nearly 30,000 students who call the city home.

Akron residents enjoy direct access to the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which borders the north end of the city— head out on foot with your backpack and tent, or hop on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad for a sightseeing tour of the park.

  • Transportation

    Akron is easy to get to and easy to get around in. This is due to the numerous large highways and freeway systems that connect most of the town to the surrounding areas. Several main thoroughfares run through the city, including I-77, which connects the city to Cleveland to the north, as well as to Marietta. I-76 runs through the city and connects Akron to I-71, and the Youngstown area. The Akron Innerbelt is the ideal way to get into and around the downtown portion of the city. It is short, at only a few miles long, but serves as a connection point to numerous other freeways. I-277 runs east to west in the city as well.

    In terms of airports, the Akron-Canton Regional Airport is the main local option, though Cleveland Hopkins Airport, an international airport that is significantly larger, is about 30 minutes to the north of the city as well.
