I just love the Arts District....whenever it's below 80! There is so much to see, it's clean, well maintained, and things are within walking distance. The traffic flow is fairly good, 'tho there could be some improvement. All over, it's a great cultural hangout!

The area is well designed and easy to navigate with a little patience parking. We enjoy strolling through the park and well lit streets. There is a good energy present. The lights and the architecture are entertaining. There are plenty of good food options from high end at Stephen Pyles to the award winning food trucks. Great for families too.

Taking the public walking tour was a great way to enjoy the Arts District! I thought it would be boring but our guide really brought those buildings to life! He was a professor of architecture at the university and so he was very knowledgeable but he was able to explain it down to non-architects in an enjoyable way! Glad we... More

There is something for everyone here in this world class arts district - Broadway shows, opera, ballet, special guest artists, world class musicians and artwork, and Klyde Warren Park just around the corner. Dallas is a city of many cultural opportunities.

In the middle of the two wing of the Crow Asian Museum is a couple of granite waterfalls, cooling the area off.

Great place to go to if you want to look at some Asian art and to get out of the heat. The Arts District has a unique feel about it and it's great for couples

the new arts district is developing a real flair and certainly worth a visit. Great buildings and little cafes give the area a relaxed feeling, and the art works are wonderful. Easy to walk around and lots to see and do

This is an amazing collection of modern (1980s - 2010s) buildings dedicated to performing arts and museums. It also contains a performing arts high school. The museums are very good and two of them are free. Warren park (built over a freeway) is adjacent to the district and is also worth a visit.

Prior to visiting the central arts district if you had told me about Dallas and culture in the same sentence I would have laughed. But the street Art was truly mind blowing. If you have a day and take the Art Walk you can truly see all the wonderful sights and have great photo opportunities.

This area is wonderful. I hope to move closer. I love the theater, museums and culture. I love the public art. It is all walkable and accessible by public transportation. It is clean and beautiful. Can you tell I'm a huge fan?

Thank Heidi C
