Dayton Car Rentals
Finding great rental cars in Dayton is simple!
At the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, children will have so much fun with the interactive exhibits, they won't even object to learning on vacation. Your kids can see zoo animals up close in the Discovery Zoo, and choose from three planetarium shows in the Space Theater. Young paleontologists will find their haven in the geology department, which has more than 15,000 rocks, dinosaur bones and mastodon skeletons.
Next, children can take a step back in time and witness the early beginnings of flight. The Wright Cycle Company Complex is located in a partially restored neighborhood that makes it seem as if the Wright brothers might step out of their shop at any time to test their latest plane. Children can see a freefall parachute, antique bicycles and the Dayton Tattler, a newspaper written by African-American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar.
Lights, Camera, Action!
If your family likes good music and lively shows, plan your trip around a show schedule at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center. The center hosts top Broadway shows, and performances have included The Lion King, Shrek, the Musical, and Mary Poppins. There's plenty of parking downtown for your Dayton rental car so you can make a night of it. Start by eating at a family-friendly restaurant such as the Spaghetti Warehouse, then head to the Schuster Center ready to be amazed!
Parks and Rec
If your kids need to burn off extra energy, let them run free at Carillon Historical Park. The park has 65 acres and 30 historical buildings with engaging, interactive exhibits. Kids can get a glimpse at the original 1905 Wright Flyer III, the world's first practical airplane and a designated National Historic Landmark, the 1835 B&O (Grasshopper) steam locomotive and the first automobile self-starter.
Downtown, kids will love what Riverscape MetroPark offers year-round. During the summer months, they will be astounded by the Fountain of Lights - one of the largest fountains in the world - and can even canoe or paddleboat on the river. In the winter months, kids can ice skate on the rink and then warm up with a cup hot chocolate at Café Vélolo. Use a Dayton car rental no matter what the season to give your family a memorable vacation.
