downtown housing tour
See what it's like to live downtown!
With hundreds of new housing units currently under construction, there's never been a better time to think about living in downtown Dayton!
Find out why downtown is the region's hottest, most in-demand address during our free Downtown Housing Tour on Saturday, May 20, from 1 to 5 p.m., sponsored by Vectren, DP&L, and the Dayton City Paper.
- Check out a variety of homes from renovated warehouse lofts to brand new apartments and townhomes at several tour stops.
- Experience the fun and convenience of downtown living, with restaurants, brewpubs, shops, performing arts, galleries and more just steps away.
- Hop on and off the free tour shuttles, or see the tour on foot or bike.
FREE SHUTTLES - Free housing tour shuttles, courtesy of the Greater Dayton RTA, will run from 1 to 5 p.m., making stops near each housing option on the tour. Hop on and off at any of the shuttle stops to check out as many or as few of the housing options as you like. A shuttle should be at each stop every 10-15 minutes.
WALKING - Walking is another great way to get around - most of the housing options on the tour are no more than a five minute walk apart.
BIKING - Or, try downtown's Link bike share! Rent a green bike from one of the many Link stations throughout downtown and ride to another station near your next destination.
Downtown has more than 13,000 parking spaces. You can find a list and map of garages and lots here, and street parking metered spots are free on weekends!
