Facilities Registration Info Workshops & Concerts

There is MUCH to do for enjoyment in the greater Northeastern Ohio area. Along with being the birthplace of the world’s rubber industry, Akron is still the world headquarters for the largest of the companies today, Goodyear, and its recognizable fleet of blimps. You will find many attractions in the surrounding area to occupy your time on the Wednesday “free-day,” or you may want to come a day early or stay a day longer to experience the area. (We have negotiated this pricing option with the Sheraton if you desire an extension to your stay.)

Some sight-seeing ideas include:


  • Akron Art Museum
