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.

Just a few blocks down from my hotel. I went here every night of my business trip. Bars and restaurants up and down this street for your pleasure. Please drink responsibly.

We went on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Surprisingly, a lot of these places only serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Oregon District is very small. Its about 2 blocks with lots of bars and a few independent shops. I saw a music shop, yoga, hair and three other boutiques. None of the boutiques were open, which was weird... More

The expression “madding crowd” appears in Thomas Gray’s Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard and then later in the title of 19th century English novelist Thomas Hardy’s novel. The... More

I highly recommend checking out the Oregon District! I wish I lived in this area of Downtown Dayton as I love the atmosphere, art, music, people, and restaurants/bars. The homes and architecture are astounding and a form of art in itself. Do not visit Dayton (or live here) without checking out this area!! The best time to go would probably... More
