Downtown Walking Wednesdays

walking wednesdays

Walk a different downtown route each week!

Looking for a great way to get out of the office, get some exercise, and meet new people on your lunch break? Join us each Wednesday this summer for Downtown Walking Wednesdays!

These fun walks feature a different downtown route each week, taking you past a variety of landmarks and parts of our city while introducing you to other downtown workers who like to walk.

  • Start your walk at Courthouse Square during its free "The Square Is Where" entertainment.
  • Walks can be self-guided, so you can start at any time. But, if you'd like to walk with a group, plan to depart from Courthouse Square at 12:10 p.m.
  • All walking routes are loops, and short enough to complete in 30-45 minutes, so you can easily fit in a walk during your lunch hour.
  • While you're walking, take a photo and post it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WalkDowntownDYT for a chance to win prizes in one of our drawings.
  • Another way to win: Stop by the Downtown Dayton Partnership table at Courthouse Square and grab a Downtown Walking Wednesdays punch card. Each week you walk with the group, have your card punched. Full punch cards can be turned in for a prize drawing entry.
