|I am also from Dayton, OH! We live downtown with the buildings on one side and the river on the other. We get to watch lots of people go by--many of them are walking dogs, which is fun to watch. Along the river, there are lots of big birds including geese, ducks, herons, seagulls, sandpipers, and the occasional peregrine falcon. We had one sit outside our window. He was eating a rabbit. That made us happy that we are indoor kitties!
Dayton has lots of great bikeways, including one that runs outside our house. Mom and Dad like to go out there and walk, rollerblade, and ride bikes--when the weather cooperates.
There are a lot of festivals in Dayton during the Summer and Fall. Mom's favorite is Cityfolk. She likes world music, and that always brings a good variety of performers. There is also the Popcorn Festival, Oktoberfest, Strawberry Festival, Greek Festival, etc. (Too many to list.) Oh, and we have a cat show here every year. That's where all those fancy purebred kitties get looked at and judged. We like the cat show, because mom comes home with free samples of cat food! For more info on Dayton, check out Ravi's writings. He included a link to the Wikipedia Dayton article.
