Pav’s Creamery in Akron: An Ice Cream Cult Classic

Pav’s Creamery in Akron: An Ice Cream Cult Classic

A few weeks ago, the discovery of Pav’s Creamery in Portage Lakes threw a curveball to my carefully curated lineup of Canton ice cream favorites.

SkyMax Trampoline Arena in North Canton

SkyMax Trampoline Arena in North Canton

I don’t know about you, but stir-crazy barely begins to describe what we’ve been feelin’ in the Floyd household this winter. We’re movie’d out, XBOX’d out, and for sure, polar vortex’d out.

Since hiking, biking, even backyard-playing, are 8″ of snow-melt and a good 50 degrees away, we’ve been trying to pass the Winter blues in more creative ways.… Read More
