We were visiting only for 3 days and not sure if we should check this area out - but glad we did! The number of restaurants and bars in the area is phenomenal. And so many are built into the existing old-building infrastructure, it makes it very interesting!! Also, when you hear the history of it, and how it's changed... More

Dozens of unique joints, dives, stages, shops, artists, cultural events, live performances, on and on. Come here, especially at night.

Old Dallas. Worth walking out to see. A step back in time. Interesting murals and diverse, quirky shops

Don't miss a stop in the Deep Ellum area while in Dallas where you'll find funky shops, amazing bbq (Pecan Lodge) and an excellent mico brewery (Braindead Brewing).

Definitely a bit more hipster- some great restaurants and quirky stores. Try out the Deep Ellum Brewery for a more local experience after wandering downtown Dallas for the day.

Cute area in Dallas that reminds me of Williamsburg. Has a lot of great restaurants and shops. Not sure what it used to be like, but certainly seems to be grown and I'm sure new stuff is opening all the time.

Fun artwork around and nice restaurants along the strip. Not a whole lot to see but there are plenty of places to eat/drink.

If you want to get a feel for the Dallas arts area, this is one place to visit. The area is in the process of being renovated. The streets are clean and it is very safe. There are a lot of fun shops and good restaurants. You can even rent a bicycle for the day to ride around and explore... More
