If you come to Dayton and don't go, shame on you.

Wow, what a gem! Was in town and got to hang out during my stay. Love the shops, espcially the hat store. Wish I could remember the name of it. Fantastic food, really cool vibe.

The Oregon is only three blocks long, but contains most of the better restaurants in Dayton. Lots of choices. Dayton doesn't have a lot of live music, but most of what they have is here too.

The Oregon District has longevity and the restored homes make a nice backdrop for the 5th Street bars, restaurants and coffee shops. A great place to spend an evening or an afternoon...nearby historic St Anne has a brew pub as well and close to the Warped Wing downtown....always enjoyable to stop in one of the great places to eat.

Lovely old section of Dayton. As it turns out, I was visiting for a wedding and found out that my cousin lived there. Lovely gazebo with a field and playground equipment for children. Nice restaurant-Wheat Penny-right by the District.

The Oregon District has a lot to offer. There are several different restaurants will different options. My favorite is the Dublin Pub. They also have Wiley's Comedy Club which has some excellent comedians. Research who they are having because some can be offensive.

The anchor on one end is a great independent theater showing first run films. The other end is Cold Pressed coffee. In between are a few nice restaurants some seedy looking bars and a glass fronted adult shop, so walk the kids fast pass that one. There is a good choice for lunch called Lucky's, well more than lunch they're... More

Take time to walk the area and enjoy the unique, eclectic shops and eateries. Good food and fun bars with music and some with outdoor seating. Special events like runs and festivals. Definitely something for everyone. Very cool restoration homes in the walking area.

Just a street full of bars in old buildings. Nothing to write home about. One bar charged $60.00 (!!!) for 6 shots. 2 doors down, it was $28.00 REALLY??? We had drove down to Dayton early to hang out in the Oregon District. Pretty much a waste
