Default What to do in Dayton OH?

Am travelling to Dayton OH next week to accompany my son's HS indoor percussion team to a competition at U of OH @ Dayton. There will be lots of downtime so wondering if there is anything worth seeing in the area? Places to eat etc.... thanks

the Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson AFB is worth a trip.

other then that, I'm not really that familiar with the actual city. Might try looking around here-

Other than the AF museum, you can watch cars rust.

The Pine Club restaurant. It was the only thing I looked forward to when visiting Dayton while working for NCR.

Thanks all - he's 15 so I suppose he would appreciate Hooters as much as I would....Fromm the sounds of it the Indoor Percussion Championship may be THE thing to do in Dayton! (Besides the AFB of course)
For kicks check out the band's video on youtube - Dartmouth High School Indoor Percussion 2012 - Evolve.

Amazing what the kids can do

Years ago when I traveled a lot to Dayton I liked the Charlie Muir restaurant. Don't know if it's still there but the food was great.
