Akron is a family town in Northeast Ohio, where people are loyal to the region, and of course, Cleveland sports fans are legendary for their blind loyalty. Northeast Ohio is a hidden gem as far as a great place to live and raise a family. The cost of living is affordable compared to next-tier metroplex regions, and there is a wide variety of housing and community styles to choose from; commutes are very manageable and significant traffic jams are rare; schools are great; parks are fantastic and free; and there’s a compelling art, dining, and entertainment scene. Akron is big enough to have just about everything a family would want in terms of access to the outdoors, shopping, dining, and entertainment, yet small enough to have a family and un-frenzied vibe.

Does this sound like a good fit for you? Please submit your information at this link:
