In Dayton, the Perfect Place to Live and Learn

Located in Southwest Ohio midway between Columbus and Cincinnati, Dayton is a mid-sized Midwestern city with a diverse metropolitan area of almost a million residents. The Dayton region combines an excellent quality of life and low cost of living; encompasses a wide variety of unique urban, suburban and rural communities; and features many of the resources and amenities of a much larger city (arts and culture, sports and recreation, shopping and dining) while avoiding most of the drawbacks (traffic, high costs, congestion). Whatever your needs and interests, your new hometown is sure to have something wonderful in store for you.

With its fortunes no longer tied to the auto industry, Dayton has been recognized for some of its best assets. Dayton is the "happiest American city to work in," according to a Jan. 9, 2013, article in Forbes magazine. Dayton also was in the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ list of America’s Most Affordable Cities. And American Style magazine ranked the city second on its list of the Top 25 Mid-size Cities for Art.
