Akron is located in northeast Ohio, approximately 39 miles south of Lake Erie. It's the fifth largest city in Ohio with a population of 199,110. In the late 1800s/early 1900s, Akron was known as the "Rubber Capital of the World," with four major tire corporations headquartered there. By the latter part of the 20th century, the tire industry had decreased by half, and Akron forged ahead by earning an international reputation in polymers. It's now at the center of what is called the "Polymer Valley," which includes 400 polymer-related industries. In addition, Newsweek Magazine listed Akron 5th of ten "high tech havens" in 2001. Akron is home to the E.J. Thomas Hall, which regularly hosts the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Children's Concert Society, Broadway musicals, ballets, comedies and lectures. Other attractions include the Akron Civic Theater, Lock 3 Park Amphitheater, the Akron Art Museum, the Akron Police Museum and the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, which ranks seventh on the list of Largest Historic Homes in the United States. The city of Akron is also host to lots of annual festivals each year. Just a few on the list are the National Hamburger Festival, the Italian Festival, and the Rib, White & Blue, (a national fib festival.) The PGA World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational is held in Akron each year at the Firestone Country Club and the World Championship Finals are held at Derby Downs.

Akron Weather & Climate

Northeast Ohio has a humid continental climate with four distinct seasons. Summers are hot and humid and winters are cold and snowy. Spring is unpredictable and autumn is sunny and mild. You can expect almost any type of weather in Northeast Ohio - severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, blizzards and winter ice storms are all a possibility. It's definitely a good idea to check ahead if you're traveling to Ohio, as weather here is changeable. In general, however, the warmest month is July and the coldest month is January. The maximum rain usually occurs in June. Some years see blizzards and huge accumulations of snow, while other years the ground may be covered only 2 or 3 times. There is a saying in Ohio: if you don't like the weather, wait a day and it will change. This sums it up quite well.
