I live north of Dayton. The base area is nicer than actually Dayton it self. Near the base there are 2 nice malls, I don't know how the schools are in that area, but our schools are really nice. I don't think it is expensive, but I guess that depends on where you are moving from. I feel safe where we are, but there are definatly places in Dayton I don't feel safe, like downtown. You can contact me if you have more questions!

hey, i'm about 30mins south of WPAFB. My hubby was born there. It's about like everywhere else. Some areas bad, some good. i wouldn't live in Downtown Dayton(which is actually about 30mins north of the base). Dayton mall is huge. there are alot of shops & cinemas, roller rinks around. Tons to do. historical parks, Dayton dragons(minor leagues), convention center. Tons!!

i lived in ohio for practically my whole life. and i always loved going to dayton! my grandpa worked at the wright pat for like 30 some years and retired from there he loved it! just like most big cities depending on where you live and go depends on the safety of it. but the malls are great, price of living is about the same as any other big city. and its ohio so the people are nice! thats mainly why i miss home so much:( i love ohio.

thank you ladies! well i am hoping to live on base, so hopefully that works out! i am just praying we get this job. we've been stuck in jersey for 14 almost 15 years, its time to move on!! dayton sounds exactly for us! where we are, in jersey  is really only good if you like going out to bars, and clubs and stuff, none of which we are into. we like malls, and eating out and family stuff. lol!!
