Retail Therapy
There are a number of little shops and locally-owned boutiques in Centerville. Home2Home is a large consignment shop that carries beautiful products and even has an interior decorator come in once a week to keep the shop looking like a well-curated boutique. Bargain hunters can find items deeply discounted if they've been in the store for too long. Joli Boutique carries pretty hats and dresses for women looking for a more feminine style. For large-scale shopping, the Dayton Mall is nearby, offering a wide variety of major retailers.
Dining and Drinking
For coffee, head to Saxbys. They also serve breakfast, frozen yogurt and smoothies. Rue Dumaine is Jennifer's favorite restaurant in Centerville. Chef-owner Anne Kearney has won numerous awards and national contests for her French-American bistro cuisine. Kabuki is a tiny little Korean-Japanese restaurant that serves delicious sushi with artful presentations and authentic Korean cuisine. In downtown Centerville, Savona Restaurant and Wine Bar is a fantastic modern American restaurant with Mediterranean influences that uses locally-sourced ingredients. 
Geez Grill & Pub is a great casual place to hang out, grab a burger and watch some sports. The Cubby Hole is a lively local sports bar where they have trivia, open mic nights, and plenty of Buckeye action. The Pour Haus has a great selection of beer on draft and an extensive list of specialty shots. The comfortable and more refined Archer's Tavern has a selection of 50 bottled beers and serves a wide variety of signature burgers and other bar food.
Jennifer says, "If you can't find anything to do in Dayton, you're not looking. It's really easy to network and meet people. There are a lot of tings for young professionals to do. Generation Dayton a great place to get started. There's a lot of opportunity for professional development [and social events]."
