Dayton

Dayton
The Essential
Ohio's sixth-largest city sits on the Miami River floodplain, which fueled its industry in the late 19C. Dayton's most famous native sons are Wilbur and Orville Wright, whose experiments at their bicycle-repair shop led to the first successful airplane flight in 1903. You can track their discoveries at the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park, then take in more aviation history at the National Museum of the US Air Force, located just east of town at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
