Akron: More Than Just the Rubber City

While Akron has been dubbed the "Rubber City" due to some of its industrial contributions, it actually has a lot to offer in the areas of arts and entertainment. Stan Hywet Hall, a National Historic Landmark, is a massive Tudor mansion built by the founder of Goodyear tires. A tour of the plush mansion and beautifully manicured gardens is a great way to spend a morning. The West Point Market is a unique gourmet shopping experience. With a dozen different areas, you can find some of the most exotic foods you've ever seen on offer here. The Harry London chocolate factory is a sweet treat. The tour even ends with some delicious free samples."
