  1. Join

This single website is the most perfect tool for finding like-minded people to add to your crew. Just make a quick free profile and you’re on the way to finding people who enjoy to do what you do. The site has a wide variety of interest groups in the Dayton area from those that enjoy doing the occasional happy hour at a local bar to a fun crew to play board games until dawn with. Groups range from completely free to a small annual due that covers costs, and meet up expenses vary depending on activity.


  1. Want to find new friends? Join the club!

If you’re more of a traditional friend finder, Dayton has a wide variety of clubs to join. The area is home to many groups based on heritage. Check out the Dayton Liederkranz-Turner (German-American Club)Dayton Polish Club, or India Club of Dayton.

There’s also a wide variety of religious organizations and churches in the area that host many social groups within. Try searching for your chosen denomination near you, or contact your prior institution to see if they have an area recommendation.

  1. It’s playtime with local sport clubs and groups.

Let’s play! It may be that easy for kids to make friends, but adults can find friends through sporting groups fairly easily as well. Many local clubs offer specialized sporting teams or a variety to get out there and play with a new group of people.


  1. Go Take a Hike!

The Dayton area offers many places to hit the trails and maybe meet some new faces along the way. Want something a bit more structured? Join a local hiking group or check out a guided hike.
