Go for many reasons: artists' works on display; fun dining experiences; great shopping for unique items;beautifully restored older buildings with lots of character! We eat someplace different every time we go and have not been disappointed yet. Great people watching as well. Parking can be a little challenging on weekends.

We went to the 2014 Urban Street Bazaar and thoroughly enjoy it! It was pretty small (only two rows of tents down a short street) but the venders had lots of interesting trinkets and baubles to look and buy, and we enjoyed going into the nearby shops as well.

Great shops, find that unique gift you've been looking for. AMAZING restaurants! Have not had a bad meal in the Bishop Arts District yet! Make sure to call ahead - reservations may be needed at some restaurants!

Very small area. It's touted as a big area to discover in the travel magazines, etc. However, it's only a couple of blocks of boutique stores and restaurants. Monday through Thursday, most of the stores were closed by 5:30 so it wasn't worth the trip. I was discussing it with the ladies in the visitors center and they said that... More

I was recommended by a friend from Dallas to spend time in Bishop Arts and it was such a great idea. We spent a ton of time here- ate breakfast and dinner nightly. Awesome shopping and art. A must-see/eat/shop destination

I love this place! Its funky, artistic, hip, and uber casual and comfy. There are great little boutiques (including Dude Sweet Chocolate which offers fantastic homemade chocolates and samples of everything they sell), wonderful interesting eateries, colorful street scenes and an ambience of art and cool. Its like an enclave of new Austin in the middle of old Dallas. You... More

This is an interesting part of Dallas. However, it is only a few blocks long. There are some good restaurants and interesting shops/boutiques in the area. It is well worth a meal and a stroll. However, the area could be done up much better and be maintained in better shape. I have been much impressed by similar areas in other... More

Its pretty small if you just stick to the few main streets, which I recommend. Saturday is the best time to go; they have festivals sometimes which are really fun. Interesting shops to explore as well as a couple of art galleries, and a couple of good food places like Eno's and Oddfellows.

The sun poked out as we shopped in the arts district. Since we'd left Ohio with snow on the ground the day before, we were quite happy about the 50 degree temps some of the Dallas folks were complaining about! Scoped out the area as we planned where to eat. Decided to eat lunch at Oddfellows. I had a very... More

Make Shop is an essential shop in this area. I love it here there is so much to see in the area and the food is amazing. The art is from locals who talents ranges from designing clothes to portrait painting. They have classes that are awesome for this.
