Dalton [1] is a village in Wayne County in Northeast Ohio, with a population of just over 2000. It is a sleepy and relaxing residential town, and is considered to be an untouched tourist area off the traditional Amish tourist path. The village is very well kept and clean but a convenient location to surrounding tourist areas north, south, east, and west of it.
