Spend a day touring the Wright Patterson Air Force Museum and learn more than yoou can imagine about the history of aviation. Very interesting stuff, but it can be tough on your feet if you're wearing the wrog shoes.
Stillwater Valley Area
On Old Troy Pike coming from Huber Heights going towards Tipp City you will hit the Stillwater Valley area. There are some beautiful water falls on back country road at a state walking park just look for the sign.
The World A'fair Dayton!
One of my favorite things to do in Dayton is eat. And if you take a look at my gut, you will know how much I love to eat.
Each year the pinacle of eating and International Culture come together in Dayton at the Dayton World A'fair. Many cities have International Festivals, so your may be similar. In 2004, it is being held in late may, early june. Each year it differs, and is one weekend only.
In addition to shopping for goods from various countries, and watching performances by the various ethnic cultural groups, you can stuff your face with some of the best food ever! Oh yeah, you can come see the ol' Kdoc at the Scotland booth, and ask for a peek at what's under the kilt.
Scotland has some great food, as do Vietnam, Korea, and Italy. But the best booth there is Japan. Not only do they have great food, but they have Sake! Yep, you can get boozed up in front of the kids at the festival and try your hand at polka dancing or celtic lord of the dance type stuff. It is safe and fun for the whole family, plus it helps you to understand other cultures. Check out the web site for more info, or who to contact. If that's no help, contact the Dayton Convention Center at the number below. Or do www.daytonconventioncenter.com and check out the info there. Or just go to the contact page and stare at the beautiful and dreamy salesperson named Elyse! I would marry her!
This place is open 24 hours, it has a counter and some booths, and the doughnuts are super cheap. Atkins dieters, be damned!
They have seasonal choices like pumpkin doughnuts, and a big selection of cruellers and fritters, that you won't find at a lot of places. Of course, they sell milk, coffee, and juice too. My favorite doughnuts are custard-filled, or with jimmies (sprinkles).

The US Air Force Museum is a 'must see' for anyone who enjoys airplanes.
HUGE collection of aircraft, including the only XB-70 Valkyrie in existance. They are working on building a 3rd wing to this, so plan on a full day, possibly even more.
