What should not be missed in or around Dayton, Ohio?

College age son has a summer engineering internship in Beaver Creek, OH. I and wife and high school junior son plan to take a road trip from Rochester, NY to visit in early July. We’re looking for suggestions of weird or awesome museums, hikes, bike trails, record stores, book stores, used-clothing shops, local famous foods, etc in the Dayton and larger area. We’ve not found too much at a first pass of research - what are we missing?!

Need assistance/advice regarding 2013 Subaru Legacy 2.5i

I bought this vehicle 2 weeks ago. It's got 148,000 miles, Carfax report showe regular maintenance, and it was in very good condition. I took it to my local mechanic, (not a Subaru expert, but an experienced mechanic). He replaced the front brake pads and rotors (when I test drove it, brakes were spongy and dull. Dealer said there was "sufficient"pad surface left.) My mechanic also rotated and balanced the tires, and that made a huge improvement in how it drives. [more inside]

Hello Cleveland! Need some trip advice.

Next weekend, my wife and I are visiting Cleveland for a family college graduation. On Monday, after the festivities, we'll have a day to ourselves before a late evening flight home. I'm looking for activity suggestions for the day. We haven't really been there before, so even the obvious is welcome. We like museums, and fine dining, not so much shopping, though a small amount is OK, if there's something not-to-be-missed unique. We will use Uber, most likely, and are staying at the downtown Marriott in the Key Center.

Where to stay in Cleveland

I'm fulfilling my childhood dream of seeing the Monkees - at the Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield Park this Sunday. I was planning to go with a friend, who was going to drive us there and back, but she had an emergency and can't make it. I can't drive at night, so now I need to pick a hotel with a shuttle to the Rocksino, and it's making me a bit crazy. Details inside. [more inside]
