A place that can be said to have it all is Kent, Ohio. It is a placeÂ on whichÂ a visitorÂ can have fun exercise and history all in one area. When you visit here you have to see the Kent State University Museum's costume collection that encompasses American and European high fashion from the 18th century to the present day. There are hundreds of trees throughout this city giving it the name of "Tree City".
The extensive trail system of Kent is great for hiking and nature observation. You can reserve a picnic pavilion or gazebo for special events. In winter, the sledding hills are popular, as is the nationally recognized cross-country ski trail. Relax in one of the city parks and enjoy the fascinating display that nature puts on here in this city. The fantastic rock formations are worth their weight in gold as part of Ohio's treasury of scenic natural wonders.
Herons, ducks, geese and beaver can be found in the spring-fed waters, while cattail, buttonbush and swamp white oak line the shores of the beautiful Woods Park. Its large lake with its many forks and coves is extremely popular with fishermen, boaters and swimmers. The park's meadows and woodlots provide opportunities for a full range of outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, picnicking, swimming, hunting, boating, and fishing in summer as well as cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in winter.
Accommodations are available at four hotels in the city, such as the Akron- Days Inn, the Kent Super 8, The Quality Inn and the Holiday Inn. Whether you want to dine on steak or taste the delightful Thai, Chinese, Mexican or other international cuisines, the many restaurants will fulfill your wishes. You won't leave here hungry, but you may leave with a sense of regret that your vacation has come to a close.
