Canton Airport Guide

You can get a broad sweep of Akron’s history from several venues in the city. Hale Farm is a living museum where you can see what life was like in Akron in the 19th century. There you’ll see demonstrations of the early industries such as glass blowing, pottery, basket weaving and more. Hower House on the University of Akron campus is left as it was in Victorian days and was owned by one of the early rubber barons. There’s also the home of John Brown, the renowned abolitionist which has the story of his life and work told through exhibits and vignettes.


Canton Airport Directions

Take the airport road up to where it joins interstate 76. Travel west on route76 until you reach the turn for East Market Street. Follow this, crossing interstate 77 and you’ll get right into Akron city centre.


Canton Airport Parking

With reduced mobility access to all four parking lots, parking at Akron-Canton couldn’t be easier. There’s a short term lot, a long term one and finally an economy one with park and ride service. You can also wait free of charge for 30 minutes in the cell phone area.

Akron Info

Akron is the fifth biggest city in Ohio, founded in 1825. A sleepy town for decades; advances in industrial technology led to it becoming an industrial boomtown with the population tripling in the second decade of the 20th century. This was where America’s stoneware, sanitary ware, rubber, matches and more were made and whilst many of those industries have declined, Akron is now in the leading pack of technology companies.
