“Weird”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We went to the comedy club in the area it was nice. We walked around later after the show. It was crowded in th bars so we did not go in. I think younger people would like the area.

“Just a bit unsure”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've heard about the "Oregon District" from many upon my arrival in Dayton. First visit did not give me a sense of security due to late night and seeing "shady" characters on the street. Visited during the day time and could understand why people felt an attraction.
Restaurants have been highly reocmmended, but shopping??? I wouldn't say you're missing anything unless you want to spice up your sex life with your partner. Couple of pubs that may be okay (didn't go in), but to me...not what others made it out to be. Very small area, surprised by some of the retail. Other than visiting Thai 9 restaurant...not sure I'd need to visit.

“Good food and drink in Dayton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Dayton is a small city, and especially from the downtown area north there is not a great deal of nightlife. If you want to go out and have fun for an evening, though, this is a good place to go. There are some very good restaurants and the atmosphere is festive. It's not a huge area, but it's worth visiting.

“Trendy Area but no Favorites”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a trendy area but all the places we've tried are just OK. Admittedly, there are some newer dishes but not especially good considering the price is higher than elsewhere.

“Quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Interesting little area of Dayton. Lots of small pubs and restaurants. Old time feel and look. Lovely older homes. Fun to walk around and take in the sights.
