What Kent has to offer

Whether kayaking the Cuyahoga River, strolling downtown, climbing the corporate ladder or biking to classes at the second largest public university in Ohio, one thing is clear — there’s no place like Kent. 

Kent is an American original, with history and personal stories at every street corner, thanks to the eclectic mix of people that have called Kent home. From an Ohio Governor and internationally acclaimed composer, to comedians Drew Carey and Arsenio Hall, Kent has always been a place full of great characters.
