Located in Northeast Ohio, Akron is the fifth largest city in the state and is a great place to live and work, offering the benefits of being close to major cities, but having a small-town feel. The Akron community provides a family-friendly atmosphere with endless entertainment options, excellent education institutions, along with the natural beauties of the Cuyahoga Valley. Travel from Akron is convenient with access to several major highways and airports located nearby in Akron-Canton, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
