Akron City Center
Southeast of Cleveland and due west of Youngstown, Akron, Ohio is a great location for exploring many of Ohio’s attractions. A short drive down Interstate-77 gets you to Canton, home to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and a short drive up the Interstate takes you into Cleveland, where you can see the Browns play or visit the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
There are plenty of Akron attractions to see as well though. They may not be as famous as attractions in nearby Ohio cities, but Akron attractions like the Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, the Akron Zoological Park and the Akron Art Museum are all worth a visit.
The Akron convention center also hosts a number of events throughout the year that may draw you to the small city. Aside from being home to Akron’s roller derby team, the Rubber City Roller Girls, the Akron convention center also hosts cheerleading competitions, book fairs and home shows.

Quaker Square Inn: Not only is it one of the most unique hotels in Ohio, the Quaker Square Inn may be one of the most unique hotels anywhere. Converted from a silo complex, the Quaker Square Inn’s rooms are actually built into the silos, which give the rooms a rounded shape.
