Visitors to Greater Akron, OH, will get swept up in all the family fun that Summit County offers. We have activities everyone will enjoy for a memorable weekend getaway. Go on an adventure and ride the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. It is a great way to explore the area and provides unique experiences for all ages. Make sure to spend time at the Akron Zoo - it’s home to over 1,000 animals and has something for everyone. Another special stop for the kids is the Akron Children’s Museum, where they can learn through play, discovery and exploration. Catch a Minor League Baseball game at Canal Park, home of the Akron RubberDucks. While you’re in downtown Akron, make a point to stop by the Akron Art Museum. Wander off the beaten path to Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) and stop by Brandywine Falls - one of Ohio’s largest waterfalls at over 60 feet! The 9th most-visited US National Park in 2022, the CVNP boasts 33,000 acres of unimaginably beautiful areas to play, rest and recharge. We also encourage visitors to explore Summit Metro Parks and visit the F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm.
