Akron is a great community, and a great place to buy your first home! Not only are home prices affordable (mortgage payments here are often lower than the average rent payment) it’s a family friendly community perfect for prospective homeowners looking to put down some roots.
Akron offers an eventful season downtown in the refurbished community parks, Lock 3 & Lock 4. Free events occur here almost weekly that are family friendly and great for date night. Holiday events also happen at these parks and are very well funded by local committees and businesses. The fireworks shows at Lock 3 are said to be some of the best in the state! Akron is also home to the minor league team, the Rubber Ducks, which is another great & affordable way to spend some time downtown. The stadium is surrounded by many bars and restaurants that make up a very lively weekend nightlife.
Akron rests at the heart of several major highway convergences, making it only a short drive away from several state parks, the Football Hall of Fame, Hartville Market place, and many other sightseeing and shopping attractions.
And who can forget, Akron is home to recently returned Cleveland Cavaliers start, Lebron James!
