Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is open April-December. Located in Akron, Ohio, is the former home of F.A. Seiberling, the co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and his family. Completed in 1915, Stan Hywet is the one of the most important remaining examples of an American Country Estate built by the wealth created during the Industrial Age at the turn of the twentieth century, when the emergence of modern America made Akron the "Rubber Capital of the World." The Tudor revival Manor House is 64,500 sq. feet and the 6th largest home open to the public in the U.S. Open from April through December, Stan Hywet includes a 65-room Manor House, a conservatory and more than 70 acres of artfully landscaped ground. It is Akron's oldest National Historic Landmark and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

Our first time at the manor and it was spectacular! We went for the afternoon self-guided tour of the manor house and greenhouse, conservatory and rain forest, it was absolutely stunning. Parking is very easy you walk over to the admission and get your ticket and they have a gift shop and a small eatery and then you walk to the manor house, it’s three stories and you can walk outside to the gardens, the conservatory greenhouse. In all we spent about three hours there, but it was freezing cold and they did have warming stations but we didn’t do a lot of the outside stuff they do have a large kids play area outside during nice weather. You get a nice booklet with a map and there’s volunteers everywhere around the manor and outside if you have questions, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful! We would definitely go again.

The Winery at Wolf Creek

Reviewed By Traviata5013 - Ohio

A magnificent venue to spend an afternoon sipping good wine and munching on snacks. The view is spectacular! The Chardonnay plus Pinot Noir are quite good. Several varieties available so take your time. We brought our own picnic lunch but they do sell food. The...MoreThanks! So glad you enjoyed. Our goats and alpacas love their graham crackers-kids too! We are family friendly during the day and weekday evenings but discourage bringing children on weekend evenings after 6pm.

This quiet memorial park makes you aware of the price that was paid and is still being paid...for my freedom. The devotion of the caretakers make this small piece of ground...a true tribute to the lives of those that GAVE THEIR ALL.

My kids love going to the Nature Realm and walking through the woods and running around in the grass. I love that they have free events for kids on Thursdays during the summer. You can also feed the birds which is always a highlight for my kids.

Red Horse Winery

Red Horse Winery produces Award Winning Wines from California and local grapes that will appeal to anyone's taste buds !!

Reviewed By Elizabeth P - Lancaster, New York

I came here with a group of friends. There's not a lot of space inside, but we managed to get a table. It was still pretty crowded. The wine was pretty good. They allow guests to bring in food. You can buy a few things there like a few cheese varieties. I like a more relaxing atmosphere for a winery and to be able to order something more substantial for food, sometimes it can be difficult to have to bring a meal with me. I may come again, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

I've been wanting to go here for over a year now and I finally made it! I literally gasped when I walked in. Samples, samples, and more samples! I loved that! We walked out with Wasabi Peas, Applewood Smoked Double Cream Cheddar (seriously tastes like bacon), Milk Doubled Dipped Raisins and 1/4lb of Pepperoni! I can't believe I waited this long to come here! Don't make the same mistake!

Akron Zoo

Reviewed By Ecospan - Cincinnati, Ohio

When purchasing admission, mention if you are a member at another zoo. Depending upon which zoo, you could be offered discount admission. We are members of the Cincinnati Zoo and did receive a small discount.

Akron Zoo was tidy and quaint. It took us about 2 hours to see the entire zoo at a leisurely pace. It was a chilly winter day, and there were not a great number of guests, or visible zoo employees. After admission, we only encountered one other employee who informed us of closing time and asked us to leave.

Favorite exhibits included the penguins, the otter, the jellyfish, the Caybara, and the songbirds. We saw the bears and wolf, which was nice, but they were resting while we were there.

I know that it is winter, but water for a few of the displays looked artificially green and very dirty/mucky. We are hoping that a cleaning is coming up soon. Interaction with zoo staff/volunteers is what we are used to at the Cincinnati Zoo, and that does not seem to be the case at all at the Akron Zoo. Overall, a nice but limited stroll for animal enthusiasts. If this review was helpful to you, please let Trip Advisor know by clicking the like button. Thank You!
