Looks like it is on its way back, but has a ways to go. Still pleasant to stroll through or eat at

The West End was popular years ago then people stopped going and many businesses moved out. I think it bottomed out a few ~years ago and is on its way back now. Restaurants have... read more

Area is filled with museums, attractions and restaurants to visit and explore. Area is accessible by car and public transportation. Great area for locals and visitors for night life activities.

The West End was popular years ago then people stopped going and many businesses moved out. I think it bottomed out a few ~years ago and is on its way back now. Restaurants have stabilized, Arts district is drawing people to the area, Clyde Warren Park is a magnet. You are close to the JFK Memorial which is really a... More

If you are doing a walking tour or Segway tour, a stop in Dallas West end should be included. We did a Segway tour (which I would highly recommend).

Small business come and go, but the large chains pulled out of the West End years ago. Even being surrounded by new apartment buildings, it is just plain scary after dark. The only real entertainment left is the Dallas Aquarium which is a hidden gem. Save your time when visiting the Perot and head to Uptown or Victory Park.

This place is much smaller than expected, you could walk through all of it in about 20 minutes. The area is mostly restaurants and cafes with a few shops scattered. Worth a wander if you are nearby at one of the museums, but I wouldn't go out of my way to come here. We tried corners bakery and Sonnys BBQ... More

Lot of rest. Either moved or went out of business. Convenient to get to by rail. Spaghetti warehouse was one of originals and still there, last visit was a bad experience, service poor, food just as bad.

We took the trolley to West End and ate at a restaurant. A lot of variety as far as food and shopping. Good for shopping and restaurants. Very nice area for a date or dinner with friends.
