Akron is as safe as any other big city in the USA, but it is always important to be cautious and aware of your surroundings. Try not to walk around alone in the evenings, and don’t carry large amounts of cash on you. Also, it would be a good idea to avoid the neighbourhoods of Lakemore, Barberton and Norton.
