Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens

Kiera from Easy Travel Mom took her young daughter for a self guided tour of Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens located in Akron, Ohio. What a gorgeous place to spend time outdoors, enjoy the flowers and gardens and learn about history while you are there.

It was a hot summer day when Jolie and I visited, but regardless of the uncomfortable heat there was something serene and real about this place.

We started with the self-guided tour of the Manor House which was somewhat difficult to do with Jolie. ”Security” seemed to be keeping a close eye on us as we went from room to room because Jolie really didn’t want to stay behind the red rope that blocked off areas. My little rebel!

    We went to Akron for a long weekend several years ago, but we didn't make it to Stan Hywet. I know I would enjoy the gardens. Next time!
