Live here and get elsewhere with ease. We always have been an artery of American mobility. Early settlers made their way here, first traveling along dirt paths and then along the paved Old National Road. Some of the same sights — like old forest growth at Earlham College and old hotels in many small towns — are similar to what travelers would have seen as they traveled in covered wagons and old Model Ts.

Live here and easily get to three major airports and six interstates. Easily catch major-league sports such as baseball’s Reds, football’s Colts and the biggest race in the world, the Indy 500. All are within an hour or so.

So are the Dayton Air Show, the best children’s museum in the country and Jungle Jim’s, the most ethnically diverse market in the United States. Explore the highways and byways around here and discover fly-fishing, fossil-hunting and some fabulous hole-in-the-wall eateries.

Live here and get to all of them — and a lot more — with ease.
