On the 20th (Thu), stop by Esther Price Fine Chocolates, then see the interesting displays at National Museum of the US Air Force, and then buy something for everyone on your list at Dayton Mall. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Carillon Historical Park, then browse the eclectic array of goods at Jungle Jim's International Market, and then explore the different monuments and memorials at Woodland Cemetery & Arboretum.

Plan my Dayton trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Chicago to Dayton is an approximately 3-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Chicago to Dayton. June in Dayton sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 62°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can go by car to Columbus.
