Re: Moving to Dayton
Miamisburg is a pretty nice suburb of Dayton, you could certainly do worse. I was just looking to moving there myself but we wound up getting a place in Kettering last week. The apartment complex in Miamisburg that my girlfriend was really high on was called Lyons Den I believe. It is pretty affordable for the quality of it (I think it was around $500-525 a month), two bedrooms, two bathrooms. I think you can have dogs there but I am not 100% sure on that. Other than this place, I am not familiar with any other complexes in Miamisburg as far as specifics, I just know it is a nice suburb in general. I had a buddy that lived there for a few years and he had a house in a REALLY nice neighborhood around Gebhardt Church Rd. Prince George I think was the name of the neighborhood, or something close to that.
As far as other suburbs, the southern suburbs of Dayton, such as the aforementioned Miamisburg and Kettering, plus Centerville and Oakwood are the nicest. Consequently they are of course going to be more expensive than say Riverside or Trotwood (no knock on those towns, I lived in Riverside for 19 years). Beavercreek to the east of Dayton is pretty nice. They are all really close together and close to I-75. If you want more choices, a little south of these suburbs are Franklin, Springboro, Lebanon in Warren County, just south of Miamisburg, and that's a rapidly growing area and pretty nice as well.
Hope this helps.
