10 Things to Do in Huber Heights That You Shouldn't Miss

January 26, 2018 Mikaela Didonna

Huber Heights is a city in Montgomery, Miami and Greene counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. Huber Heights' motto is "America's largest community of brick homes." The city is named for Charles Huber, the developer who constructed a number of the houses that would later constitute the city. Suburban development began in the area in 1956. The former Wayne Township, now defunct, incorporated as the City of Huber Heights on January 23, 1981. Huber Heights continued to grow by annexing parcels in Miami and Greene counties. Huber Heights is the third largest suburb in the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area by population, behind Kettering with 56,163, and Beavercreek with 45,193. Huber Heights' current mayor is Jeff Gore. The population of Huber Heights was 38,101 at the 2010 census.

National Museum of the U.S. Air Force

Reviewed By LMS0305 - Memphis, Tennessee

The museum is MASSIVE, and there are more planes, military equipment and uniforms, and war artifacts to count. To try to read everything would take hours! The best part about the museum is admission is free! You will definitely get good exercise just walking throughout the space, but prepare for long walks for small kids and those with mobility challenges (I believe there are strollers and scooters available in the lobby) There are several planes in hangar 4, including a few Air Force One, that can be walked through, but the spaces are very narrow, which I can see problematic for larger or older individuals. There are opportunities for flight simulators geared towards older children and adults. My two toddlers (ages 4 and 3) had a great time seeing all the planes, but I wish there were more interactive exhibits/exhibits children could sit in, that would entertain smaller kids. Def recommend for Dayton visitors and history buffs!

Charleston Falls Preserve

Reviewed By lauralR6853TO - Kettering, Ohio

My husband and I started the 2018 with a hike to the Charleston Falls Preserve. It was gorgeous and breath taking. Especially when we walked down the path near the falls. How can that much water freeze in mid air? It was magnificent.

The Hairless Hare

Reviewed By Brent J

Local brewery with top rated brews.
Everytime I come in, whether to hang out or get a growler refill, the staff(ownership) is glad you came & express it.
They have a continuously rotating selection, a small menu featuring pizza, jukebox & a few games.
It's a small place, but a great atmosphere.
If you're in the area, its a must stop

Rose Music Center at The Heights

Reviewed By Andrea B - Columbus, Ohio

Went to a Brian Culbertson/George Clinton concert at the Rose Music Center at the Heights, Huber Heights, Ohio and boy was I surprised. I have never been in an outdoor fully covered concert venue with fans turning to keep things cool! The venue was wonderful. Brian Culbertson was awesome as usual! George Clinton, not so much. The event staff were excellent taking care of two elderly aunts in the disabled seating section. Loved the venue!

Carillon Historical Park

Reviewed By Brent H - Dover, Delaware

Going in the middle of the week was a good choice. I got a personal walk around inside the transportation museum and the Wright museum. Both of these are well worth the visit, not to mention everything else on the grounds. There are some historical artifacts that you cannot see anywhere else as they literally don't exist. The grounds are lovely and I would love to come back when the weather is nice. The staff is excellent as well. I haven't been to a museum where the docents were that helpful in a long time. As an added bonus a young bald eagle pair has just established a nest above the Wright museum and you can see them flying around or sitting in the trees. Very neat experience.

Wise Choice British Foods, Gifts & Candies

Reviewed By KMarieDayton - Dayton, Ohio

I visited Wise Choice on a whim after seeing the store in TripAdvisor. What a gift! I was warmly greeted by Henry, the owner, seconds after the door chime sounded (great chime, by the way), and we got on swimmingly, talking Cadbury chocolates and the current issues between that company and Hershey. Henry gave me a chocolate sample, and I was sold on the candy and the store!
The shop is a hodgepodge of British, Irish, Scottish, Welsh (etc) products. Crisps, biscuits, jams, teas, chocolates, drinks, and other wonderful international products create a delightful visual adventure. This store wouldn't be as excellent without the delightful Henry and his stories and warmth and friendliness. This is a can't-miss shop, a hidden gem, in the Dayton area. Don't let the somewhat rundown and empty parking lot and strip mall deter you from this gift. Pull in and go inside. All the fun begins there!

Adventures on the Grat Miami

Reviewed By GoJo82 - London, Ohio

Took the kayak on the Great Miami river.

The Livery - Adventures on the Great (not Grat) Miami.
This was a nice family run place with a small campground. A very nice piece of property on the river which is your exit point. They have plenty of newer equipment, paddles, etc. The drive upriver to the put-in is quick. The have two exit points fairly close to each other the one further down stream is better, as the grade has been greatly reduced and is much easier to exit. Prices were reasonable and were within the going rates in the area. Overall no complaints.

The River
we put in at the south end of Troy OH. The actual put in is nothing more than a steep dirt path through a scrub line of bushes. I am not even sure who owns the property. There were four of us (two couples) we did not ask the Livery operator for assistance, but if you are not confident of your descending skills, you may want to ask for help as it is very steep dirt bank with not a lot of traction.
The river was low due to time of year and lack of rain, but it was very enjoyable. We did the 10 mile trip and it took us a good five hours (we did stop for a picnic lunch) the current was almost non-existent, so you will have to paddle the whole time. Very scenic with several rapids areas which was fun.

Things to look out for
Adventures on the Great Miami has two entrances the one closest to the river is closed off as your ability to safely exit is hampered by poor visibility. The other entrance, and the one you must enter, is not marked at all. So keep your eyes open. If you go west of the river, you went too far.
The campground does not have permanent bathrooms, but I will say they are the cleanest port-a-potties I have seen in a long time.
