My husband is going to be working just south of Akron off 77.  We're looking for 1) good school districts and 2) semi or semi rural areas to live east of and west of 77.  Also, does anyone know what the traffic flow is like?

 

I've never been to the area.  What is there in Akron and Canton?  Whole Foods?  I saw there is a pretty neat zoo in Akron.

There's so much to tell.  I live just north of Akron.  I assume you want to be near his job?  Could you be more specific as to where in the city he's working?  There are a lot of choices.

A small area called Greentown, between Green and Portage Lakes. We do want to be somewhat close for the commute...a half hour drive max, but prefer more like 20-25 minutes. I did a little research and saw Lake schools are highly rated? So that is Uniontown/Hartville. Is that a good area? Is there land there? We want some acreage. Thanks!
