Rent is reasonable and food is still cheaper than most states. We have great museums, especially the airforce museum with the space section also. Weather is great, mild winters, semi hot summers. Just a general good place to live.

Dayton, NV is a quiet bedroom community an easy 15 minute drive from Carson City. We liked how our rental dollar went a lot farther than in Carson City, and there was still decent access to Tahoe. If you like four wheeling, there are roads everywhere and atv’s are allowed in town.

If you were moving to Dayton, you will not want to live in the city of Dayton if you have children. You will want to live in the suburbs of Dayton, which have better school systems than Dayton. Centerville, for one, is an excellent city because they have an excellent school system.

Dayton is a very difficult city when it comes to knowing who or what to trust. The people come from all sorts of different areas and walks of life. Some will be the nicest you have ever met, while others will rob you down to your last paperclip. So, be careful of who you trust.

If you’re moving to Dayton, Ohio, consider the rich cultural history of the city. Dayton has been the home to a lot of inventions, most famously the first airplane. Carillon Park is a local center that shows off a lot of the history of the invention of the airplane, including information about Wilbur and Orville Wright, and models of their airplane designs.

Dayton is an interesting city as from one minute to the next it could be unsure if you are in the beautiful scenic area of town, or one no one – even natives – would dare be caught crossing. Dayton can be one of the most beautiful places you have ever visited, or the worst experience of your life.

Dayton is famous for killer brownies, the Wright flyer, and basketball. There are many beautiful homes in the downtown. However, there are some downfalls to living here as well. Jobs are hard to come by. We hope to see that increase in the near future. If it does not, we may move.

For a small city, Dayton, Ohio, has a lot to offer! There are many unique and interesting things to do and see. The local culture is diverse with lots of art museums, festivals, and other events that include the people of Dayton in all walks of life. There is also a very large community of hikers runners and walkers that enjoy the local parks. Dayton is an interesting place, even though it is not given very much fanfare.

Dayton is a mid-sized city in southwestern Ohio. Because it is between the larger metropolitan areas of Columbus and Cincinnati, many world-class museums and other cultural attractions lie within the appropriate range for a day trip. Dayton is also a historic city with much culture of its own to explore; for example, it is the birthplace of Orville and Wilbur Wright, inventors of the first powered airplane.

To say that Dayton is the perfect place is an understatement. Dayton has everything that a person could possibly dream of having in a community. Between the diversity, ever-growing jobs, and wide array of family friendly entertainment- there is something here for everyone. One you live here, you will never long to live anywhere else again.
