Favorite thing: 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.
My evening in Dayton was spent at ekoostik hookah's acoustic show at the Canal Street Tavern. If you're into jambands, then this is the place to drop into. Canal St. provides the perfect atmosphere for an unplugged evening. It also gives the band a chance to interact more with the audience. I had such a great time at this show! I got a chance to speak with one of the drummers and come to find out, we have a lot in common (drum corps rules!).
But back to the city itself; it's really clean and easy to get around. If I didn't get lost, then no one should.=0)
When this building was opened in 1908, it was the 2nd largest YMCA in the World!
(Interesting trivia.) Recently renovated, it now serves as the Dayton City Hall. It's at 101 N. Ludlow.
