As you probably know, VegiTerranean is in Akron. I would check out the Akron Art Museum housed in a very cool, ultra-modern building downtown. The Akron Zoo is pretty good, too. The Akron Aeros play in a very nice little stadium, Canal Park, but not sure if they will be at home when you will be in town. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railway (http://www.cvsr.com/) is also a great option for a scenic train ride through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park between Akron & Cleveland. You might also check out Stan Hywet Hall (http://www.stanhywet.org/) a magnificent old mansion, estate & gardens, home to the founders of Goodyear. Finally, you might also wish to see what's going on at Blossom Music Center, summer home of the Cleveland Orchestra, but also the sight for a myriad of other musical events throughout the summer. Hope these suggestions help.

A little longer drive would take you to Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton and to Ohio Amish Country.

i've been to stan hywet hall and gardens and really enjoyed it. i wish i'd spent more time in the gardens, so i think that's where we'll go. how far is it from the restaurant to the hall?

It looks like it's about 1.5 miles away or about a half hour walk. Without a car, you would be limited to downtown Akron, unless you use a cab (I have no idea how easy it is to get a cab on a Sunday in Arkon).
