Twinsburg is a suburban city in Summit County, Ohio, located about halfway between Akron and Cleveland. is around 18,795. Because of the lower number of people living here making it a perfect place to raise a family. Like the name implies the city holds an annual festival for twins called “Twin Days”. Don’t believe me? Check out the website HERE! The festival holds the honor of being the world’s largest gathering of twins. So, why the name Twinsburg? In 1819 a pair of twins from Connecticut purchased 4,000 acres of land with the idea of selling 6 acres for 20 dollars to anyone to fund the local school. How cool is that? Ironically the two twins had wives who were both sisters as well. Small world right?

It’s also home to a state-of-the-art fitness center, one of the best in the area!
