Spring sunshine, flowers and warm weather have returned, and this year the first event of the DP&L Summer in the City lineup will be offered online. The 2020 Virtual Downtown Dayton Housing Tour will begin on May 16, and all are welcome to explore from the safety and comfort of their own homes.
The fun begins when the Virtual Tour web page launches at noon on Saturday, May 16, featuring a variety of ways for people to explore living options, amenities and more in downtown Dayton. The Downtown Dayton Partnership and its sponsors wanted to continue to offer the free Downtown Housing Tour, even though current stay-at-home orders are in place across the state.
“Although it’s unfortunate one of our most popular summertime events can’t be held in person, our team is excited to offer this as a virtual experience that opens up unique opportunities that wouldn’t have otherwise been available in our normal housing tour,” said Sandy Gudorf, president of the Downtown Dayton Partnership.
Thanks to the generosity of DP&L, Thrive Mortgage, and Dayton.com, the Virtual Downtown Housing Tour will feature video tours, photo galleries, construction renderings, and more from a mix of apartments and condos available in downtown Dayton, giving attendees several tastes of downtown living. The Virtual Downtown Housing Tour will be housed on downtowndayton.org. Information about the offerings of the Virtual Downtown Housing Tour, and the link to the page, will be available ahead of the event on a special Facebook event page here.
