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.
