Some good eating places there but not a place to take the kiddies. Adult stores are there too and some seedy people walking around.

We are fortunate to have this adorable district in the Dayton area. It's the perfect place to go with friends. Plenty of good restaurants, bars, and entertainment to choose from. It's nice just to go for a stroll too.

Stroll the historic district - brick streets and homes 150 years old that are real architectural treasures. Seafood, Thai, and many other restaurants, eateries and "drinkeries" can be found here.

This is where Dayton goes out to drink. It's the only area in town where you'll find a handful of bars and restaurants in walking distance from each other.

We enjoyed going to this little section in dayton. Some really cool older buildings that have been restored as well as some new construction with some great restaurants and shops. It's a nice place to walk around.

Title says what I experienced. Also the Goodwill Thrift shop was a find. Got a pair of cargo shorts in good condition for $4.10. Forgot to pack this item.
