Cleveland wasn’t the only place that left a great impression with guests from the Republican National Convention.

The same can be said for the entire region.

Convention guests from across the world explored the Greater Akron area.

They made stops at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.

Gail Marie Fort, vice president of outreach and community at Stan Hywet, said, “I think it was really a surprise for them to see what we had to offer in Akron and to get a sense of our history.”

Many guests stopped at Stan Hywet before they headed home.
