Many of Akron’s most interesting sights are within easy reach of Kent, making it a popular place to stay or visit on a day trip. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Chapel Hill Mall and the iconic First and Main Hudson. Two other great attractions you’ll find within a short distance of Kent are the Mary Campbell Cave and the Cathedral of Tomorrow.
If you have a passion for sports, you’ll enjoy seeing local heroes, the Kent State Golden Flashers, doing battle at Dix Stadium. On game days follow the river of blue and gold, to the stadium, then after the final siren sounds, join fellow sports lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe for a few post-game beers.
To make the most of this fascinating part of the world, think about booking your accommodation close by in one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. The Courtyard by Marriott Akron Stow, the Wingate by Wyndham Streetsboro/Cleveland Southeast and the Sheraton Suites Akron Cuyahoga Falls are among the many great places to stay around here.
