Always something going on in the Oregon distrct. Get something to eat at the many restaurants and bars then get a drink and listen to one of the many music groups that play there.

Very pretty area of Dayton, a walking brochure would be a great help. The architecture, the colors, the plantings, all very nice; homey.

This is a surprisingly interesting and fun small part of old Dayton. Wonderful eclectic shops, bars and people watching. There are some really unusual people but wonder this area. I think it's still reasonably safe to be down there. There are wonderful restaurants which I had for joyed countless times.

The Oregon district was one of the first things that I noticed about downtown Dayton after taking a wrong turn. It was a nice discovery and I had to plan a return.

I love going to the Oregon District for a great meal and to visit the speciality shops. There is a great bar scene and most will have live music especially on the weekends. I never miss it at Christmas time because all of the houses are so beautifully decorated.

Love walking in the Oregon district, listening to the music. You can always run into someone you know, or haven't seen in years. There are so many restaurants to choose from. You could eat at a different place every night. If you can afford to.

Took a walk to the district from my downtown Hotel. What a mixture of shops and such. A wild used Book Store, very nice hat shop, Tattoo Parlors, triple X shop, nice cafes, a huge Goodwill Store, a wild mixture of stuff! If you have time and nothing to do, take a stroll down to the District.

Mostly 18th century buildings redone in an eclectic mix of shops and eateries. The neighbour features great old architecture on properties that display proud looking 19th century homes and well groomed grounds.
