It's not called the Birthplace of Aviation for nothing. Many sites here are geared towards the Wright Brothers and aviation in general.
It's not too bad for a medium-sized city. I have to admit that without the 'birthplace of aviation' claim to fame, it wouldn't stand out much from any other city of its size.
But it has lots to do for aviation fans and it has a reasonable cost of living for its inhabitants. Also, there are lots of opportunities for higher education.
Because I've always loved jets and airplanes, I'm lucky that I live in Dayton because there are a lot of opportunities to see jets, or maybe even ride in them!
The F-16 is a pretty cool jet. I've had the opportunity to go up for a backseat ride twice. It's just like a really smooth roller coaster ride, except that it flips upside down/right-side up on a dime, crushes you with very strong G forces, and travels at like a billion miles an hour. And it's hard to walk after a one-hour ride, unless of course you're a pilot and you're accustomed to it.
- Pros:Small, relatively diverse population, great for aviation buffs; easy to get around
- Cons:Rather unexciting; lacks many cultural activities
