              What Makes a House a Home?
04   LIVING   “What makes a house a home?” is the often-asked
                                                                                  05
              question that begs an answer like “companionship”
              or “love.” For most everyone, it’s obvious that what
              makes a home is really more than the house itself.
              And while your new Litehouse is a terrific step toward a
              wonderful life, looking outside your door is really the key to
              becoming part of and belonging to a supportive, exciting and
              interdependent community.
              This guide is meant to be a start on finding and building your
              own community. Whether that idea manifests through hours
              reading at a local coffeehouse, becoming involved in your
              business community or simply walking the gardens at Wegerzyn
              and grabbing produce at the farmers’ market, what’s clear is that
              there are lots of choices in the Dayton Region.
              Once you’ve unpacked your belongings, positioned your artwork
              and cooked your first meal, take a moment to put your feet up
              and explore this guide. Then put your feet out, pound the
              pavement and see what’s been waiting for you.


              Have a wonderful life in your new home!




              Enrich your indoor living with the host of
              activities right outside your door.
                 Performing & Visual Arts
                 Amazing, as it may seem, Dayton ranked number one in
                 ARTS and CULTURE among U.S. mid-size cities (2007, Cities
                 Ranked and Rated).
                 Pretty impressive. But if you dig below the surface, you’ll find all
                 sorts of interesting facts that have made Dayton an arts Mecca
                 for generations. For example, Dayton was the second city in the
                 country (behind New York City) to establish a ballet company.
                 Today, Dayton offers a wide range of arts (including dance, theater,
                 opera, symphony, and visual) available to enjoy at award-winning
                 historic, contemporary and outdoor venues.
