Akron is a vibrant city set in the heartland of Ohio and is at an ideal meeting point at the center of multiple major transportation routes. Only 45 minutes south of the home of the NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers, Akron is surrounded by lush greenery and adjacent to Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Our city is a playground for our active citizens. The downtown hosts a vibrant arts scene and world class shopping. Summer brings excitement with the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational and the All-American Soap Box Derby. Akron, OH is home to a well appointed Zoo with many first class exhibits and attractions. The Rubber City is proud to be the location of Goodyear's World Headquarters and the Goodyear Blimp (pictured above). As mentioned above, we are only a short drive away from the major metropolitan center of Cleveland, OH. We would be remiss if we did not mention that Lebron James, star of the Cleveland Cavalier's 2016 Championship run makes his home here as well. Around Christmas time you will not find a more beautiful site then the Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. It is known all over Ohio for its Christmas decorations. We are proud to call this city home for the First Baptist Church of Kenmore.
