Relocation Tools

The Dayton region’s roots are firmly planted in the spirit of innovation, which spills over from the days when the Wright Brothers took flight and Charles Kettering kept refrigerators cold with the invention of Freon. That forward-thinking continues today, driving research in the region’s business community, providing unique opportunities for anyone considering a relocation to Southwest Ohio.

Today, the nine county Dayton region has a population of nearly 1.6 million. People choose to call this region home for many different reasons, but the low cost of living, access to high quality education, ease of transportation and thriving business community often have a lot to do with their decision.

The icing on the Dayton cake is its jaw-dropping arts scene, with organizations such as the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera, Dayton Philharmonic, Victoria Theater, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Loft Theater, Dayton Art Institute, Dayton Visual Arts Center, Muse Machine and more leading the way.
