Throughout the late 19th and early 20th century, the American trucking industry was born and developed in Akron. Headquarters for the four major tire companies in the U.S., Goodrich, Goodyear, Firestone and General Tire, were all established in Akron, Ohio. This led to the city’s nickname as “Rubber Capital of the World”, or “Rubber City”. At present, Akron is home to Polymer Valley, with 400 polymer-related companies! Newsweek listed this innovative city as fifth of ten high-tech havens.

​​​​​​​In addition to showcasing major American inventions, a fabulous art collection is on display at The Akron Art Museum, located in a thriving downtown area.
