Enjoy the Ride on Our Akron, OH Bus Charters
Rent a Bus to Visit National Parks & Historic Homes
Rising from the rolling hills of the Western Reserve along the Ohio & Erie Canal, Akron sits almost 40 miles south of Lake Erie along the Little Cuyahoga River. Once a humble canal town, it evolved into the “rubber capital of the world” thanks to the likes of Goodrich, Firestone and Goodyear. Today, it boasts the Akron Museum of Art, the home of abolitionist John Brown and the shops at Quaker Square, once the headquarters for the famed oatmeal maker.
The nearby Cuyahoga Valley National Park is an all-season playground for outdoor lovers.

Surrounded by lush green acres, the city is home to museums, restaurants and the Akron Rubber Ducks, a minor-league baseball team. Below are some of the points of interest visitors should not miss on their travels through the region.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — From the water slides at nearby Wildwater Kingdom to the blues clubs on Akron’s Northside neighborhood, this is a small city with a lot to offer. The landmark Lock 3 along the Ohio & Erie Canal transforms into an amphitheater that hosts festivals while the nearby Akron Civic Theater has been a venue for live performances for eight decades. The John S. Knight Center hosts concerts, shows, lavish galas and more year-round.

Bargain hunters can hunt for treasurers at the Aurora Farms Premiums Outlets. Finished with your retail therapy? Grab a bite at one of the restaurants along Highland Square or Akron’s Northside neighborhood.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — It makes sense that the “rubber capital of the world” would boast a minor league ball club named the Rubber Ducks. They play at Canal Park. The University of Akron’s football team plays at InfoCision Stadium. Looking to hit the links?
