Akron plus Electricity Equals Akronicity!

The old joke goes, what's round on both sides and high in the middle? Well, Ohio, of course. But, far from being a punch line in school yard joke, Ohio is a state brimming with history, culture and attractions. Located on the Cuyahoga River in Northwestern Ohio, Akron has become a beacon for travelers looking for a destination on the road less traveled. The name itself, a loose translation of the Greek for summit, speaks of the peak of good living. Home to the University of Akron, The Akron Aeros (the double A club of the Cleveland Indians) and the All American Soap Box Derby, Akron is a place that really knows how to have some fun! But, it also has a more cerebral side. Want proof? Check out the Akron Art Museum, The National Inventors Hall of Fame and the Archives of the History of American Psychology at the University of Akron. Or take it outside with a walk in one of Akron's myriad of parks including the Akron Dog Park, the Akron Zoological Park or Northfield Park. Ski at nearby Brandywine Ski Resort or take your family out for the day at Geauga Lake Family Amusement Park. Any way you shake it, Akron is anything but square.
