Xenia is a great Mid West town. Small enough to know most of the streets, big enough to have many opportunities. It is close to a moderate sized city of Dayton and an hour's drive from two large cities. The schools are diverse, there are public, private, and charter schools to find what best meets your needs. Several major universities and several community colleges. Something for everyone!

I have lived in Xenia for 15 of my 17 years. I find that it has a lot of really great people in it that definitely want to see this town shine. The one thing I would say is that it does not offer much for the kids to do. They closed the public pool, and the bowling alley. There isn't a mall or movie theater. I would love to see these things develop in my small town. There is a really nice library, where I have spent many hours reading or studying. It has beautiful old historic buildings that are slowly being restored. It is a diverse town with many cultures, religions, and races being represented. I look forward to traveling the country, but I am proud to call Xenia home!
Xenia is a small town where everyone knows everyone. There isn't much in ways of entertainment and local businesses are transient. There are lots of local parks and bike paths, and the buildings near downtown are old and beautiful. In the center and north of town, the population is old and friendly, however in the east and south the neighborhoods are poorer and there's a drug problem- not somewhere you walk alone at night. It is diverse and there is a significant population of muslims, however the majority are Christians and the local churches play a central role in the community.
