Default Akron Ohio

Looks like I'm moving there in the next few months, well by July at least.

Anyone there?

I'm up the road in Cleveland Heights, if that's any help. Paul S is a bit further north, and Duncan Roberts is to the west of Cleveland.

We're about an hour from Akron. Best be friendly to me from now on then.

I've been there but don't actually know the city well enough to say if I like it or not. Went to an Akron Aeros game for a field trip with kidlet's school last year and of course there's the inventors hall of fame which is actually quite nice.

Are you moving because of work?

How is life around Cleveland? Moved back to UK a year ago from North Olmsted and now starting to miss it.

Well damn. Glad to hear you liked the area anyway. It's not usually mentioned in a good light on BE. Being a native, I think you have to spend some time here to get to know it. Good luck in your move...

True on both counts. However I think you're saved for the time being. There is a huge road construction project underway that would really impact the quality of life, depending on where you live, in the area. In the meantime do make an effort on your downtime to come visit. Come and watch a baseball game while you're at it.

Akron General Medical Center?

Like most rustbelt cities, the downtown core of Akron isn't very pretty. But the surrounding areas are very nice. Tallmadge, Bath Township, Hudson, Copley, Cuyahoga Falls, all would be fine places to live. There's a roundabout in the middle of Tallmadge to make you feel right at home.

Ah, never mind then.

Also, if you want to buy a 1600' 3 bedroomed townhouse in Avon, give me a shout. Admittedly Avon is about an hour away from Akron, but the house is a bargain and in a decent area!
