Greater Dayton boasts the nation’s largest network of paved trails—350-plus miles—perfect for biking, rollerblading, jogging or walking.

Celebrate African American Heritage

The Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park commemorates three important Dayton historical figures—Wilbur Wright, Orville Wright and Paul Laurence Dunbar. Visit Paul Laurence Dunbar’s House to learn about this first publicly acclaimed African American poet and writer and friend of the Wrights. Born in Dayton in 1872 to two formerly enslaved people, literary genius Dunbar is considered by many to be one of America’s greatest black poets and writers. He sought equality for all people and gave works of beauty to the world.

The Dayton Contemporary Dance Company is a world-renowned dance company founded in 1968 by Dayton native Jeraldyn Blunden to create performance opportunities for dancers of color. Rooted in the African American experience, and recipient of numerous dance world honors, DCDC provides must-see performances in Dayton and across the globe.

Dayton was the epicenter of a new genre of music called funk in the 1970s and 80s. Dayton was a hotbed of funk bands such as The Ohio Players, Lakeside, Slave and Zapp that produced more than 110 charting singles between 1972 and 1998.

Visitors to the area can also explore two Historically Black Universities. Wilberforce University, founded in 1856, is the nation’s oldest private Historically Black University owned and operated by African Americans. Central State University is Ohio’s only public Historically Black University.

The National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center located in Wilberforce serves to chronicle the varied experiences of African Americans, from their African origins to the present.
