We decided to take a weekend trip to Akron. We had a lot of fun seeing a new part of Ohio. Here's some of the highlights!
Downtown Akron was pretty dirty and run down, although the Modern Art Museum was a pretty impressive structure. We also passed by Dr. Bob's home in Akron, where AA began. As we are not recovering alcoholics (or alcoholics at all for that matter), we decided to forgo the museum inside.
Soap Box Derby. Those gates just happened to be open too as we were driving by. What a cool place! It takes about 30 seconds to travel the 989-foot track and by the finish line the cars are traveling about 30mph. We might have to make our way back there in August for the annual Derby races.
All in all a fun trip and a fun weekend. And now that school's out for the summer, we plan on having lots more fun adventures like this before September rolls around. :)
