Dayton: A Great Place to Live and Work
Few places in the nation combine a more appealing and diverse environment than Southwest Ohio and the Miami Valley, where major urban centers like Dayton, Cincinnati, and Columbus harmonize with vibrant small towns and sleepy rural villages.
Family-friend communities are one of the Midwest’s most enduring traits, and even the larger urban areas retain the warmth of a close-knit spirit. Especially in many of the smaller towns and villages, strong volunteerism and participation in clubs and organizations creates a genuine family feeling in the community.
Newcomers to this picturesque and diverse region will discover a pleasing blend of urban neighborhoods, vibrant suburbs, master-planned and golf communities, and friendly small towns.
Appealing to a wide cross-section of budgets and lifestyle choices, home styles range from historic Victorians and stately Tudors to cozy bungalows, traditionals, quaint farmhouses, multi-acre properties, contemporaries, and majestic country estates.
Transportation efficiencies are outstanding at the “Crossroads of America,” where the national Interstates 70 and 75 intersect and anchor a network of federal and state highways. Regardless of where you choose to live, quick and easy commutes are the rule whether the destination is work or leisure.
Sports enthusiasts can hike, bike, camp, water ski, canoe and kayak, boat, fish, hunt on acres of preserved recreational land. Closer to home, developed recreation programs and local parks ensure quality activity for leisure hours. Golf courses, tennis courts, yacht clubs and other private sports clubs, fitness centers, and other recreational attractions are scattered throughout the region. From the natural beauty of its picturesque landscapes to the unparalleled quality of life, Greater Dayton is the ideal place to live, play, and work.
