State of Ohio: The Heart of it All

Kent is located just a short drive from Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown and Canton. These major cities offer plenty to see and do with access to concert venues, entertainment districts, world-class museums, premium shopping outlets, parks and zoos, and professional sporting events. Nearby you'll also find spectacular scenery with hundreds of miles of trails for hiking and biking, or fishing, boating, canoeing, sailing, and swimming in rivers, lakes and along beaches.
