The famous May 4th Kent State Memorial is on the campus, and is well worth the visit. Also, on the campus, is the Fashion Museum, one of two in the nation. They have a gift shop which carries clothing designed by the students, etc.
In the summer, you can rent canoes and paddle down the Cuyahoga River. The Farmers Market is downtown every Saturday morning from 9-1pm. Getting AroundIf you fly, the closest airports are Cleveland-Hopkins and Akron. A car is useful in Kent, but not necessary. There is a bus stop at 6th Ave and Rugg that runs downtown and to campus. Biking is the best way to get around Kent. Bring a bike and keep it in our bike rack.
If you do not rent a car, you could get call for an Uber driver. Cheryl, the owner, has just become an Uber driver. Other Things to NoteWe have four Labrador Retrievers on the property who love to greet guests. They are all very friendly and love people... and food! They are not allowed in the guest apartment in case some of our guests may have allergies.
