It's Akron time!

On Sunday, our travels took us to Akron, Ohio. As I said, we were right between Akron and Cleveland. And this weekend was the show at the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens. This is a magnificent old estate in the suburbs of Akron. It is available to rent for functions. The gardens cover acres, and throughout the gardens on this weekend, they were having an arts festival, complete with food vendors and a beer tent and wine tasting.

This was one of many tents throughout the gardens. They give you a map when you enter. It was that big!

This was an enormously long trellis for grapes.
And here is the conservatory.

There were many things I could have brought, but not really having any room for more stuff, we enjoyed just looking.

Afterwards, we headed to downtown Akron for lunch at a nice sports bar, then farther south of town to Sirpilla RV and Camping World. When ever we travel, I always find RV dealers where we can look at new mo-ho's. Not to buy of course, but it's always fun to see the new styles. And then it was back to the campground for a grilled chicken dinner.

  1. I get sad looking at new style RVs. I guess envious more so. I just sigh a lot but LOVE to look as well. Especially spacious 5th wheels.
