Super City Kent
Warning: if you are looking for the fan club page of Clark Kent, you have made a wrong turn. Repeat, you have made a wrong turn, Superman. This is Kent, the city in the state of Ohio, but it’s no less super. It’s is the largest city in Portage County and sits on the fun-to-say Cuyahoga River. (Pet name alert?) Kent is part of the Akron metropolitan area and is only about twenty-five minutes outside of Akron.

What’s Going on Around K-Town?
The outdoors around here are a bit dramatic, but it’s all good. You’ll find four distinct seasons in Kent, each one of them with its own personality. In the summer it can get as hot as 100 degrees Fahrenheit (yowza) and in the winter you will see snow and temperatures can get down to twenty below. Brrrrr. Fall is gorgeous here when the leaves turn and the weather fluctuates between warm and crisp. You’ll have no problem finding places to enjoy being active outdoors in each season. The city has plenty of parks, preserves, trails, and athletic fields and courts. Kent is a “Tree City,” so there are enough trees to please the Lorax here and that makes for a very nice environment. (Good for running, jogging, breathing, and living.) Fred Fuller Park is on the Cuyahoga River and is a big one. The park has plenty of space to work up a sweat playing, working out, working on homework, or just thinking ‘til your brain hurts. The Forest Lake Wildlife Preserve and the Jessie Smith Wildlife Preserve both offer beautiful nature trails, so plenty of nature-appreciating can go on here.
The city has some super cool events going on throughout the year like the Halloween celebration, Who’s Your Mama? (an environmental festival), and the Kent Heritage Festival which draws in some big crowds. As a resident, you’ll have fun, spirited things to participate in all year long. Looks like that calendar is filling up!
A Blast From the Past
If you’re interested in local history, you’ll find plenty of sites in the area to explore. Check out the Kent Historical Society. The society works to preserve local history and also hosts some special events and programs, like Main Street Kent. The Brimfield Historical Society is another historical society worth visiting. They run the local Kelso House Museum.
With Kent State University’s presence and plenty of awesome apartments available, Kent definitely has the feel of a college town. Kent State is a perk even for residents who don’t work or attend the university. First of all, there are smart students walking around everywhere, so that is very cool. Plus the Kent State University Museum offers eight galleries with changing exhibits featuring work of artists and designers. Residents can also enjoy things like the university’s athletic games, the university bands, and the Kent State Auditorium.
Move into your new apartment and enjoy life in this Ohio “college town” with plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation, historical exploration, and arts and culture. Ready for your fun fact? Drew Carey went to Kent State University. Not impressed? So did Arsenio Hall, Michael Keaton, and Joe Walsh. Sounds like an interesting Alumni Association.
