Akron’s history is unique and still influences its present. For example, Goodyear Tire is centered in this city, making Akron the “Rubber Capital of the World.” Akron also has a unique influence on educational history, as the passage of the Akron School Law of 1847 created the K-12 school system that is now standard throughout the nation and in many parts of the world.

Akron, OH. Neighborhoods

For example, Merriman Valley – Merriman Woods and Merriman Heights – is one of the most prominent neighborhoods in the city and has been home to people such as AA founder Dr. Robert Smith.
And areas such as Fairlawn Heights – filled with beautiful 20th-century architecture, including homes from the Georgian Revival – and Chapel Hill – one of the biggest commercial districts in the city – all serve residents and visitors well.

New residents can get help from the city’s official website. Here, they can learn more about how to hook up utilities and can pay their bills.

Akron, OH. Housing
Currently, Akron is one of the least expensive places to live in the Nation. On a scale with a national average of 100, Akron is at 69.5. This cost of living is lower than the Ohio average of 82.6, which makes the city a good place for students or those just starting after college. Currently, the cost of housing is the most significant contributing factor to Ohio’s cost of living.
With a median home cost of $66,500, Akron is well below Ohio’s ($147,000) and the Nation’s ($231,200) median costs. Other factors, such as grocery costs (93.5), health care (83.1), utilities (92.3), transportation (80.3), and miscellaneous expenses (91.6), are all well below Ohio’s and the Nation’s averages. The city’s focus on low-cost apartments and a large volume of foreclosed homes after the 2009 financial crisis help contribute to this low cost of living.
