Tipp City is appropriately named since it really tips the hat of Dayton just north off 75. This town makes it perfect for those that want their own little town that has everything you need within a stone’s throw yet isn’t too far from Dayton to enjoy the sports games, colleges, and festivals. Being right off 75, makes Tipp City very convenient to everything.
This town has wonderful schools that exude parental involvement, school pride and Principals willing to bend over backwards to keep the staff and students happy. The students really get to shine on the field and off the field with so much that is offered. Having great schools is just one of the many assets of living in this town.
Keeping the city fresh is important and Tipp does this with a great mix of local shops. There are a lot of mom and pop shops including places like Cairn’s Toy Store which houses Melissa & Doug toys, Thomas & Friends trains, and Lego sets and That Place on Main that sells boutique style clothes and Toms shoes to name a few things.
Along with the local shops, there are plenty of local eateries that dole out deliciousness like Hickory River Smokehouse with its amazing BBQ and Coldwater Café (located in an old bank) with its top notch carrot cake. With bike paths, railroads, scenic river views, and a Family Aquatic Center- Tipp City really is picturesque and offers everything a town just around the 10,000 mark for population could need. It is a big city with a small down to earth homey feel that offers friendly faces and beauty all around.
Each of the seasons have something to show off in this city. Summer offers great canoe trips down the canal, fall brings visitors by the galore to come enjoy Tipp City’s largest event- The Mum Festival, catch Bluegrass or Big Bands at the Tipp Roller Miller in winter months and then as weather thaws out- plan a picnic at the “Roundhouse” which is a favorite spot for local families. Boasting several buildings on the National Historic Register, Tipp city has found a way to mix modern with vintage for just the right feel. Today we salute you Tipp City!
