About Greater Akron

With downtown attractions like the Akron Art Museum, Akron Civic Theatre, BLU Jazz+, and more, attendees will never have a dull moment. Crossing the street in any direction from the John S. Knight Center will lead one to shopping or food at local favorites such as Sweet Mary's Bakery, Rubber City Comics, and Mint Hair Collective. 

Through the heart of downtown runs the 85 mile Ohio Erie and Canalway Towpath Trail, which links directly to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio's only National Park.

With something for everyone, what's not to love?
