I just moved to the Dayton area (Centerville) for a job opportunity and so far, I love it! People are really wimps about driving in snow here, but other than that it is great! I am originally from MI (bay city) so the weather seems SO MILD! Its always sunny and until this most recent snow that stuck around for a few days, the grass was still green. Its 3-4 weeks from spring and we have just seen the first 'real' winter weather. Anyways, I recommend Centerville. Beautiful area, great shopping, no crime (that I have seen) and friendly people.... I have looked at a lot of apartments in the surrounding areas (miamisburg, w. carrolton, moraine, beavercreek), so if you have questions, feel free to ask. I don't have kids though so I don't know about schools. I am 28 yr/single female.

I'm probably relocating and trying to get a sense of distances, drive times, traffic for where to live.
How long would it take you to get to WPAFB? And is the Centerville area sort of turning into an extension of Cinncinnati?

It takes you around 20 minutes to get from WPAFB to Centerville, giver or take a few minutes, depending on what exit you use and what part of the base you are at. It is interestate all the way from the base (which has its own exits directly to the interestate system) to the Centerville area.

Centerville itself is an old crossroad village which is now surrounded by suburbia. The older part of Centerville is actually quite nice.

Centerville is not an extension of Cincinnati. It is certainly part of the Dayton metro area. Cincinnati is about 45 minutes away from Centerville, if the traffic is good, so you have the benefit of having the amenities and cultural offerings of both the Dayton and Cincinnati metro areas close at hand.

Example: This Friday I saw the Cincinnati orchestra at Music Hall give an Aaron Copeland concert. Next week I will see the Dayton orchestra perform works by Grieg and Sibelius. Also, in Centerville one gets both the Dayton and Cincinnati public television stations on cable.
