It’s not Mayberry but it is pretty close to being the perfect small town. In Tipp City’s downtown neighborhoods, residents still walk down tree-lined streets and speak to neighbors sitting on their front porch. Family and friends gather downtown to grab a bite to eat or to do some shopping. From its historical roots as a local stop along the Miami canal, Tipp City has evolved into a cozy community that boasts convenience to 1-75 and the Dayton International Airport. Only about 20 minutes from Downtown Dayton, this community is the destination of many homeowners who prefer the “country” feel of a small town.
Tipp City has become home to many newcomers looking for a life away from the big city and its stresses. Rural living around the downtown center is popular with newer homes with acreage and older farms. Affordable three bedroom homes are available within the downtown area. Larger Historic homes line the main thoroughfares into town and are in high demand when they come on the for sale market. Newer and larger homes with four or five bedrooms are also well sought after throughout the Miami County community. Luxury homes on an acre or two have also found their place just outside of town.
From its unique charm to its highly-rated schools, it is easy to see why so many people choose Tipp City real estate and make it their home. The community centers much of its festivities around Tippecanoe High School events including Friday night football games and annual homecoming parades. Family-owned restaurants, with dining experiences as unique as the town, and boutique shops line Main Street. From the local aquatic center to the well-maintained bike path, this small community offers residents plenty of activity and fun. The annual Mum Festival draws people from the surrounding counties for great food, crafts, music, and of course mums.
