What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Barberton

There is not a lot that I like. Rent is expensive. It is not a good area at all. I don't like living here.

It's nice to be right by the highway. It's also nice to be 2 minutes away from a good restaurant. I also feel that kids feel safe playing outside, which is nice. I like the friendly neighbors I have.

My neighborhood businesses are very involved in the community. They are also very supportive of other local businesses.

We are located within walking distance of a shopping center, as well as we one street downtown. There are shop, bars, and restaurants on second street.

I love how many small businesses we have in our area. I love that we have wide open spaces and farms but we are also close to towns and activities. I like to go to the local parks. I don't necessarily know that our neighborhood is unique.

I like to got to church and coffee shops and walk around downtown and people watch the are a lot interesting people

All About

Living in Barberton, OH

The city of Barberton offers apartment residents a wealth of activities and amenities, all within an attractive community close to urban Akron that over the years has developed a fascinating culinary history.

Barberton itself has earned a reputation throughout its history for being a center of industry and economy rivaling Akron, and the growth it experienced in its early years bestowed Barberton with the nickname of "Magic City." The city's affinity for fried chicken has also helped it gain favor among lovers of fried poultry around the country, earning it the moniker of "Chicken Capital of the World." That fame was parlayed into an annual event known as Chickenfest, which has become just as popular among visitors from around the world as it has among Barberton apartment renters.

In addition, apartment renters can sample the tastes at each of the four eateries that made Barberton a hub of chicken over the years. Belgrade Gardens, Milich's Village Inn, Hopocan Gardens, and White House Chicken each remain standing today.

Aside from its culinary exploits, apartment residents in Barberton enjoy the city for its bevy of recreational and entertainment options. There are 14 community parks located throughout Barberton, including amenities such as skating rinks, tennis courts and athletic fields. The Lake Anna Gazebo concert series thrills apartment renters all summer long, while Barberton's Magical Theater is one of just a handful of residence children's theaters in the entire country.
