I've lived in Dayton most of my life. I enjoy the Dayton Art Institute, Second street market, Neon Movies, Wegeryzen Horticultural center to name a few... I'm only an hour away from Cincinnati or Columbus . I enjoy the zoo's, Art Museums and a fantastic fireworks show on the Ohio river on Labor day in Cincy. Dayton isn't a big city, but the cost of housing is lower than in other parts of the country. Five Rivers Metro parks have a nice bike route that will allow anyone to get to Yellow Springs viva the bikepath. Shuster Center downtown offer varied entertainment and the Fraze in Kettering can have some great concerts. If gardening is a hobby there are multiible greenhouse nurseries. I'm sure I could think of much more but I'm drawing a blank...must be getting late?
