Where interstates 75 and 70 meet sits the birthplace of aviation. The Midwestern gem of Dayton boasts a bustling downtown center, thriving arts and culture scene, plentiful green spaces and historic sites. Often served as a meeting ground for conventions, Dayton has no shortage of big city amenities and small-town charm. As many Midwestern cities are ideal for driving, you'll want a Dayton rental car to cruise the streets and visit all the attractions.

Aviation attractions
Once home to Wilbur and Orville Wright, Dayton boasts an abundance of attractions dedicated to the power of flight. Drive your Dayton car rental just east of the city to the Huffman Prairie Flying Field where the Wright Brothers perfected their airplane, or head to the Carillon Historical Park where you can view the original Flyer from 1905. In 2004, Dayton was recognized at the National Aviation Heritage Area because of its rich history. Travel to the most visited free attraction, the National Museum of the United States Air Force, the National Aviation Hall of Fame or the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park. Your entire trip could be literally filled to the max with aviation!

Get artsy
You've had your fill of airplanes? No problem! Dayton is home to an excellent selection of music, theater, dance and visual arts. Drive your Dayton rental car to the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center - a truly world-class venue. Featuring two theaters, an atrium and a restaurant, you could have your fill of fun without even leaving the center. If you'd like to stroll through a museum, head to the Dayton Art Institute, which is home to more than 20,000 objects from 5,000 years of art history.

Go outdoors
With more than 16,000 acres of natural beauty in Dayton, you'll never feel like you're trapped in a concrete jungle! Park your Dayton car rental and stretch your legs in the Five Rivers Metroparks. You can enjoy hiking, biking, fishing or picnicking in the many area parks. Metroparks also includes special facilities such as a butterfly house, historical farm and the Twin Valley Trail. Before heading out, grab some locally grown food at the 2nd Street Market - you'll find breads, pastries, pies, meats and cheeses at this market.
