Home of airplane pioneers the Wright brothers, Dayton prides itself on its inventors, including Charles F. Kettering, inventor of the automobile self starter. The city was dubbed "The Gem City” after an anonymous author published an article in 1845 calling the city a gem. It is also a cultural gem for its visual art and theater culture, with venues ranging from a minimalist and expansive performing arts center to a charming Victorian structure. The downtown district touts only about 150,000 residents, while the suburbs encompass almost 900,000 people. Cultural spaces and the ten historical districts of the city are within walking distance or a short bus ride of each other. The cultural spaces provide entertainment all year long, but during the hot summer months both residents and visitors flock to the shores of the Miami River for outdoor activities.
