Your Guide to Apartments in Downtown Akron
This weekend, you've made up your mind to search out the surrounding Akron, Ohio area and find something truly unique to do. Your apartment might be comfortable and affordable, but if you don't venture out and meet some new people you might end up as one of those creepy old spinsters, and nobody wants that. But where to go? You need someplace outdoors, so you can soak up some of that sunny Akron weather, but also don't want to spend the rent money in full on some expensive amusement park. Lucky for all Akron-area apartment-ites, Lock 3 offers the best of all possible worlds.
A truly one-of-a-kind offering of cross-sectional entertainment and education, Lock 3 is an outdoor park-like setting that houses a variety of fun cultural options. In the spring and summertime live music reigns supreme, with their large outdoor stage housing free live country music every Friday night and some of the best national performers on Saturdays. Children under 48 inches high are always admitted free, so bring the kids and watch as they gaze in wonder at the Lock's Akron Marble Museum, located just steps from the main stage.
For the adults, the museum also collects various pieces of Akron lore from days gone by, and the weekend-long farmer's market has attained such legendary status that produce fans from surrounding cities make the trip to attend. And fear-not winter month dwelling apartment-ite! Lock 3's ice skating rink comes into play from November to March, with skate rentals on-site, warm cups of cocoa for all, and enough good cheer to melt even the chilliest of dispositions.
