Downtown Dallas is the wrong place for such great attractions. The social structure in Dallas made the downtown a ghost town starting in about 1964 and it remains so. yet these wonderful attractions that one simply must attend regularly are forcibly located there.

This is a tremendous, large, modern arts district. Most of it consists of new buildings. There is too much to list. Within a block of each other are the Dallas Art Museum, Nasher Sculpture Garden, and Crow Asian Arts Museum.

I have been there several times. I love this place besides its limited parking spots. A wonderful place to kill you weekend. A couple of interesting museums and a small park. Maybe the best block in downtown Dallas.

Visit the Guadalupe Cathedral, Nasher Sculpture Center, Crow Collection of Asian Art, Dallas Museum. They are all a few steps from each other. And walk around, since it's a very beautiful district.
