Discover Dayton!

Dayton, Ohio is the Birthplace of Aviation and so much more! In Dayton and Montgomery County, you will find big-city amenities with Midwestern charm and affordability. Dayton is home to the Wright Brothers, the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, and the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, the world’s largest and oldest military aviation museum and the state’s most visited free tourist attraction! 

The winter season is the most wonderful time of the year across the region, from ice skating at RiverScape MetroPark and "igloo" dining, to wintertime outdoor activities and a myriad of arts performances and exhibits.
