Ohio's fifth largest city is Akron, with a population which is roughly 200,000. Akron City is located within the northeastern part of the state in the Great Lakes region and serves as the county seat of Summit County. Akron City sits along the Little Cuyahoga River approximately sixty km south of Lake Erie. Akron's economic base has changed from heavy manufacturing to research, high technology and financial trades.

Akron City was established during the year 1825. Its positioning at the summit of the Ohio and Erie Canal promoted early growth. From the years 1860 to 1870, the thriving manufacturing, coal and railroad industries caused one more spurt in population growth.

When B.F. Goodrich, during the year 1969 started the first rubber company in Akron City, the city saw its biggest expansion due to the burgeoning rubber industry as Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and General Tire soon followed. Akron City soon became known as "The Rubber Capital of the World," and immigrants from Europe flocked there to find work within the rubber factories. Akron's rubber industry declined during the latter part of the 20th century, beat out by superior European radial tires. By the 1990's only Goodyear still remained in the city.

Akron's economy has diversified since that time. presently, there are now over 400 companies involved in the polymer industry. The city is currently been dubbed "The Polymer Valley" and is no longer the Rubber Capital. Aeronautics and motor vehicle production are other vital businesses. Businesses in the city of Akron make metals, biomedical products, chemicals and plastics. Large employers consist of Newell Rubber Maid, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, L'Oreal Cosmetics, Spectrum Brands, Lockheed-Martin, First Energy, RJS Manufacturing and Includis Manufacturing Software.

There are jobs for people with university and college degrees, like teachers, registered nurses, manufacturing and wholesale sales representatives, management analysts, mechanical engineers, industrial engineers, computer applications software engineers, financial managers, and network and computer systems administrators.

The city of Akron attracts top-notch performances to the city's three performance halls, the biggest of which is E.J. Thomas Hall, that seats 2955 individuals divided amongst three tiers. The hall's fine acoustics are due to an adjustable counter-weighted ceiling that changes the physical dimensions of the hall. Each and every year 400,000 tourists come to Akron City to be able to see Broadway musicals, comedies, lectures, ballets, and various kinds of entertainment. Musical events are provided by Akron Symphony Orchestra, Children's Concert Society and Tuesday Musical Club.
