What can I say, I live here
Dayton is a mixed bag. Winters are long and depressing. Summers can be hot, humid, rainy and unbearable or somewhat nice. Spring tends not to happen, we'll go from highs in the 50s straight to highs in the 90s with 100% humidity. One place to enjoy is Fraze Pavilion with lots of summer concerts, usually stars from the 70s or 80s. If you don't have a ticket, you can pull up a lawn chair and listen for free.
Dayton depended for years on old-line manufacturing and hasn't quite figured out how to replace those jobs. Wright Patterson Air Force Base is the major employer. Wright State, the University of Dayton, and Sinclair Community College are good educational institutions. You can pretty much get anywhere in the area in about 20 minutes. Cinncinati and Columbus are easy drives.
If you are moving here, I would stay out of the city limits. Kettering is a nice inner ring suburb, then there is Beavercreek, Centerville, and others. You can live in a bedroom community like Xenia (heads up for tornados) or Troy. Just my take, thanks for reading
