Aullwood Garden MetroPark

Reviewed By Bruce L - Clayton, Ohio

If you desire to get away from the crowds and experience the peace and quiet of nature. You need look no further than this hidden often overlooked location. Emphasis is more on garden than metro park. No beautiful scenery just simply quiet introspective scenery.

Old Mason Winery & Vineyard

Reviewed By hislove1 - Springfield, Ohio

My wife and I saw an invitation to go to Old Mason and listen to live music on Facebook so on a last second decision we went. We had never been to Old Mason before so we had no idea what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised when we found out that Old Mason has a variety of ways you can enjoy your experience while you're there. You can order their drinks, wine, sodas or bottled water or bring your own. They also invite you to Order their appetizers or they have menus for pizza places near by that will deliver to you right there. We chose to bring a very nice picnic of our own and spread it out on the table while we listened to the music. Old Mason is a little off the beaten path but very nice inside and with the extra room upstairs in the open balcony it is very comfortable in size. I recommend it.

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

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.

America's Packard Museum - The Citizens Motorcar Co.

Reviewed By John N

The museum is housed in a 100 year old 3 story Packard dealership. An adjoining building holds more Packard's and a fine research library. Early Packard's were the luxury cars of their time. This museum has examples of Packard's from the 1930's to the end of their rein in the late 50's when purchased by Studebaker. The outer rim of the building contain advertising, documents, pictures, accessories, engines, etc. Packard was very involved with the war effort with engines that powered planes and PT boats. The cars were used for military brass. View the video in the research library. The museum contains a hearse that was used in the 'Godfather' movie along with a car owned by Perry Como. The docents are knowledgeable and friendly. Admission is reasonable and parking is on the street. If you love beautiful cars this is well worth a visit.

We took the mystery, mayhem, and murder tour with a group of friends and really enjoyed the day. The tour started in daylight but ended in the dark. It was a free tour and they provided lanterns and a volunteer guide. She did a great job and shared a lot of great history. Would like to visit again to see more.

Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park

This is the location of the Wright brothers Wright Cycle Company building plus other related historical aviation sites.

Reviewed By warrenville111 - Warrenville, IL

On a Sunday morning in October, we visited the Wright Cycle Company and Visitor Center (minus the Cycle Company - it was not open). The visitor center was very nice. We enjoyed learning about the history of Wilbur and Orville Wright - Kitty Hawk - and flight. When looking at the NPS website, I didn't quite understand the layout of all of the places to visit - but based upon the brochure they had...there are 7:
1 Wright Cycle Company and Visitor Center
2 Paul Laurence Dunbar House State Memorial
3 Wright Company Factory
4 Wright Brothers Aviation Center
5 Hawthorne Hill
6. Huffman Prairie Flying Field
7. Huffman Prairie Interpretive Center.

We visited 1, 6, and 7 (1 and 7 being the visitor center). The Huffman Prairie Flying field was more of a visitor center of the later years...where the Wright Cycle Company Visitor center was about the earlier years. We enjoyed both visitor centers - rangers at both were informative and helpful.
