The coastal city of Oreos is now the seat of the municipality.

The oddity of the seaside pedestrian zone with its numerous cafes and restaurants (ouzo, fish restaurants, taverns, restaurants, etc.) have their tables lined up along the quay literally by the sea, gives the special touch of charm to the historic city of Oreos. The summer night the colorful lights of the beach antifengizoun beautiful in calm sea, while the living sounds of the night and the smell of the sea mixed with the iodine smell of burning food of grilled octopus, pleasantly stimulate all the senses. In these picturesque cafes and restaurants can be enjoyed by guests a wide range of tastes at affordable prices. In Oreos no problem stay. Several small good hotels and rooms to let, whose quality is improving, the needs of visitors to the city. From the port of Oreos can be hired (with relatively low fare) or small speedboats biggest water taxis operating to Trikeri, Volos, Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos, etc.  In Oreos operates a sailing club for young sailors aged mostly, organized games at the beginning of summer.  Each summer also the City and local associations organize several cultural events and folk evenings entertainment.

The modern city of Oreos and especially the coastal department is built with excellent layout on a topographic plan prepared in 1833 the Bavarian topographer George Sdoumager. Following the classical antiquity and for centuries the coastal area is not inhabited because of the frequent pirate raids. The construction of the waterfront began after 1850 and became an experimental implementation of new urban plans of the Bavarian engineers of the palace and head of the great Greek Constantinople engineer Stamatis Kleanthi.Se a hall of the Municipality of the city hosted the findings of the Archaeological Collection of Oreos which testify to the old glory of Oreos, the Istieas and the surrounding area.

Στα χρόνια του Βυζαντίου, μετά το 400, η Ωρεός ήταν Επισκοπική έδρα υπαγόμενη στη Μητρόπολη των Αθηνών, και μετά το 1300 στην Μητρόπολη Ευρίπου. Κατά την Ενετοκρατία έγινε έδρα Βαρονίας του Λομβαρδού Pecco-raro Dei Peccorari.

Όταν έγινε η επαναστατική απόπειρα απελευθέρωσης της Εύβοιας, λίγο μετά το 1270, από τον Καρυστινό ιππότη Λικάριο, η Ωρεός αποτέλεσε το βασικό ορμητήριο των δυνάμεων του θρυλικού επαναστάτη, Μιχαήλ Παλαιολόγο, ο οποίος επιθυμούσε να επανεντάξει την Εύβοια στο Βυζαντινό κράτος.

Σε μία αίθουσα του Δήμου της πόλης φιλοξενούνται τα ευρήματα της Αρχαιολογικής Συλλογής των Ωρεών, τα οποία μαρτυρούν την παλιά αίγλη των Ωρεών, της Ιστιαίας αλλά και της γύρω περιοχής.

Σύμφωνα με τους σχεδιασμούς της Αρχαιολογικής Υπηρεσίας και του Δήμου σύντομα στην πόλη θα ιδρυθεί Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο
