Akron

Our Friday tour of Cleveland left a great deal of time to visit other destinations.  So we thought we'd swing by Akron.  Akron is a lovely little city.  The architecture is well incorporated, the streets and buildings are surprisingly clean, and there seems to be a good amount of landscaping planned in.  But they forgot to mention that it closes early.  4:00 p.m., to be precise.

Aside from a tiny street fair for children, not a single place in downtown Akron was open.  We stumbled upon a hotel that had one person in the lobby who informed us that we could purchase water from a vending machine in an alcove across the room.  No stores were open.

Again, we didn't stay long.  I did manage to snap a couple nice pictures, though.  Especially as we found a great mural on the back wall of a vacant lot.
