What's Great In Dayton - Social Distancing Edition: March 27 - April 2, 2020


Most of you are like me, stuck at home. So all I can tell you are some things you can still do:

If you are going to be outside you can find a walking tour. Some examples are in Oakwood there’s a Self Guided Walking Tour.

There is this GPS My City and it connects to tours around the world including Dayton. The web site is: gpsmycity.com 

If you go to downtowndayton.org they also have a self-guided-tours. I found others in Kettering, Xenia, and Wapakoneta so I think you can search all around and find a self-guided tour. 

If you have access to a library, you can download all kind of books, magazines, and other digital materials. People who do not already have a Dayton Metro Library card and PIN can get an eCard online and have instant access to everything. 

On YouTube, search for Dayton Philharmonic. You will find https://youtu.be/oowm7xnu-lI">Neal Gittleman playing a Bach sonata.

The Dayton Society of Artists’ 2020 annual spring juried exhibition highlights the regional talents of the greater Miami Valley and you can see it online. It’s called AMPLIFY. Go to Youtube and search for Dayton Society of Artists.

There is this website called DECODING DAYTON. It has videos showing and talking about various city streets and buildings. It explores the essential coding of Dayton and how it has reshaped over time. 

Ricky Nye of Cincinnati is one of the world’s preeminent practitioners of boogie-woogie piano. His next live performance is Saturday at 7pm on Facebook.

Gotta go….
