Akron Tours

Akron, Ohio is steeped in history and innovation. Founded as a canal town, and once known as the "Rubber Capital of the World", Akron has evolved beyond its industrial roots to become a beacon of innovation, particularly in polymer science. Akron is also famously the hometown of basketball superstar LeBron James.  

We’ve curated various routes so that different parts of the city are highlighted on each of our tours. Let our expert guides lead you through downtown’s newly renovated streetscapes, historical landmarks, vibrant artwork, green spaces, canalway, and, in keeping with our namesake, up a few minor hills:)
