Use Common Sense

Just like any other city, one should use common sense in Dayton. Don’t waltz around downtown after dark, as the area empties early. Just like any other city, Dayton has its "less-safe" spots, and if you feel uncomfortable, follow your gut. As anywhere else in the US, call 911 in case of emergency. Don’t go around alone without telling anyone where you are. Lock your hotel room door! Dayton is a safe, friendly place but use common sense.
