Clayton Township is a very vibrant and good area to live in here in Ohio. You have the convenience of so many fun and good things to do living in the suburbs. In addition to the shopping areas with entertainment and all sorts of events during the summer season and holiday season. Beautiful sceneries with nice clean parks to enjoy family outings or just take a walk for exercise. Close access to the highway when needed. Very nice place to raise your family.

Clayton is a beautiful suburb of Dayton, Oh. I love how quiet and safe the neighborhoods are. Everyone is friendly and caring to one another. I would like to see great job opportunities in Clayton.
I love that this is such a mixed area, I've come across so many different people, including ages, races etc. The people are very very kind and its such a friendly area. You see people walking dogs and taking walks all the time throughout any weather. I don't think I'd change a thing.
