Founded in 1825 along the Ohio & Erie Canal, Akron quickly became a manufacturing center, producing everything from matches and oats to farm equipment and toys. But it was the rubber industry that truly put Akron on the map in the early 1900s. Major tire companies like Goodyear, Firestone, General, and Goodrich all had headquarters in Akron and employed thousands of local residents. At its peak, the rubber industry accounted for 75% of Akron's economy.
Today, while rubber manufacturing has declined, you can still see Akron's rubber legacy throughout the city. Visitors can tour the Akron Rubber Worker's Labor Union offices, view rubber industry artifacts at the Akron History Museum, and even watch tire manufacturing at the Goodyear headquarters. Akron also pays homage to its industrial past through art, like the Soap Box Derby Racers sculpture downtown and the Rubber Worker statue at Lock 3 Park.
Beyond rubber, Akron has emerged as a leader in education, sports, arts, and innovation. It is home to the University of Akron and prestigious liberal arts college Oberlin. The Akron Racers minor league baseball team plays at Canal Park along the historic Ohio & Erie Canal. Music lovers can catch Broadway shows at EJ Thomas Hall or live music at venues like the Akron Civic Theatre. Aspiring inventors can tour the National Inventors Hall of Fame and get inspired at the Akron Art Museum. There's a lot here, right? Not to worry, we have charter buses that can take you anywhere.
