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.

May 4th Visitor Center

Reviewed By pfefmeister - Petaluma, California

We stopped here on a Saturday in July because of the historical significance. We had to ask a couple people on campus where the memorial was located, and were underwhelmed by the presentation. Is there is visitor center where the events of that fateful day are documented? Who knows, since all the buildings were closed. There are a couple of metal signs talking about the events, but no acknowledgements of the the four people killed. For me, this was a big letdown, and I expected much more. Especially for such a watershed moment in American history.

Heaven Bound Ascensions

Reviewed By Kyle H - Mogadore

This company overcharges and under-delivers when it comes to balloon rides. "Heaven Bound Ascensions", the balloon ride portion of Fun Makers Inc. promises approximately 60 minutes in the air, but instead descended after 35 minutes. Those operating the balloon were also quite rude during the process, offending my family and I on multiple occasions. Furthermore, instead of providing a step stool or proper assistance when helping my 83 year-old grandmother into their van, they managed to push her, resulting in a cut on her leg. The champagne toast at the end of the flight was not sparkling wine (which is part of what we paid for) but is instead cheap grape juice. As one member of our party is a diabetic, we declined. When we discussed this with the owner of Fun Makers, he informed us that we should have assumed that the timeframe was flexible. He also kept intimating that we do not care about our grandmother's safety, and that they decided she could not handle the expensive sixty-minute ride, all without consulting us. I understand that one has to be flexible when dealing with something as delicate as flight, but we received less than 60% of what was a very expensive ride, and our complaints were met with demeaning responses. A simple apology would have been more than enough to satisfy my disappointment, but apparently this company is too stubborn to admit they made a mistake.

Great old theatre. Seen The Beach Boys here. Seats are comfortable and plenty of room. Prices for drinks aren't too bad. Beautiful old theatre recently restored. Theatre is easy to find, right down town.

Gorge Metro Park

Reviewed By Frederik B - Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

This is the ideal buffer between Akron and Cuyahoga Falls. Great for dog walks or runs. The Mary Coldwell cave (or whatever it's called) is nice from an historical perspective, but nothing much to see. Mostly busy with people taking a stroll. Having a look at the water fall near the dam is really nice!

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!

The Peanut Shoppe

Reviewed By Kurt L - Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, United States

The Peanut Shoppe has been serving freshly roasted nuts since the 1930's. Just look for the nostalgic sign that is a large red and white stripped bag full of peanuts. We had fun shopping at this little store, with all of it's antique touches and friendly servers. There is a wide selection of nuts and candies that should please everyone. We were shopping for Christmas and loved everything so much that we got something there for everyone on our list.
