We walked through here after driving through. Its nice to see the historic area. Lots of little shops and restaurants. The history of Dallas is amazing and this is something worth a quick stop at minimum.

Wearshouses converted to dining and entertainment venues are helpful if you are in town for a convention or meeting. Parking is usually available. Tree lined streets give an historic flavor.

You will feel safe here, not to worry. Locals don't hang out here as it is designed to get the tourist dollar. Check this area out so you won't be sorry you missed it though, it is pleasant. Take a ride on one of the horse drawn carriages, very romantic after dark and nice people driving them.

It was a great place to shop and many restaurants to choose from. It was nice to have a one place stop to visit a few shops in one area.

There are some pretty cool places in the West End but a lot of places close early or are closed on the weekend. We checked this out while we were in downtown and there are still some things to see. A friend of mine who lives in nearby Plano says the West End just isn't what it used to be.

In a modern city full of tall buildings and freeways visiting WE is a nice experience and let us remember how Dallas use to be. I recommend to find in advance where to park

West End is a great place to wander around and enjoy people watching, soak up the Texas charm, find a place to eat, and shop at specialty stores.

Everywhere you look, there is a Restaurant to please anyone's taste and/or pocketbook. You can dress 'up' or dress 'down'....the choice is yours. Isn't that what life's all about?
