Local Attractions


The living environment at Copper Creek Apartments is one of simple luxury – ideal for young professionals transitioning from college apartments to a more sophisticated lifestyle and active empty-nesters looking to downsize responsibilities.

The location can’t be beat, either. We’re just three miles from Downtown Kent and 10 miles from Downtown Akron, and there’s SO MUCH to do here!


Ray’s Place

Legendary among Kent locals and alumni. The large, varied menu has a heavy Mediterranean influence, but also features American standards like wings and burgers. Their signature Mofo burger – lauded by famed local chef Michael Symon as the “best thing he ever ate” – is a must-try.

Bistro on Main

A classy establishment where you can get a handcrafted cocktail, try a new wine from their eclectic wine list, and explore their small-batch bourbon collection. It’s the perfect spot for a date night, entertaining clients, or hitting the town with friends.

Twisted Meltz

Offers a unique take on the classic grilled cheese (named after famous Kent State alums), craft beers on tap, and a rotating selection of local favorite Ashby’s Sterling ice cream.
