Located in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, this is a cool little area that has been developed with bars, restaurants, and shops. Parking can be a headache, so arrive early or find a place with valet parking. Many of the shops are quirky and upscale - not at all what you would expect. The area is similar to Lower... More

This is a few blocks of cool cafes and great brunch spots that is a lot of fun in the spring or fall. Very little shade would make this difficult in the summer for walking.

Pretty cool few blocks. Has lots of restaurants and shopping that you will love. Don't judge a book by its cover because most of the restaurants look old but actually serve great food.

Had an interesting reception in this area - inside a parking garage! In the evening after all cars cleared - set up was very nice and there was a band...flow seemed to work very well, but drawback was restrooms on 1st floor and we were on 10th.

What a charming little area! Plenty of shops, boutiques, and restaurants to visit on a nice Saturday afternoon. Be sure to visit Dirt - a unique little flower shop with a variety of flowers and plants.

If you a a local or out of towner this place is a must. There are cute boutiques like Indigo 1745, Epiphany and Fete-ish along with some of the best restaurants in the city. Parking can be little annoying so expect to get creative on the weekend. Also please stop at Dirt. It is the coolest plant/flower shop in town.

Pros: history, old buildings, some interesting murals Cons: The place is pretty boring and not kids friendly. The attraction at that place are pretty much rude drivers that keep honking their horn.

There are unique restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. It's crazy that I've lived near Dallas for 11 years, and I just recently experienced this gem. I went to visit a coffee shop on a Saturday morning, and I was so impressed by the neighborhood that I decided to experience more of it into the afternoon. I invited my daughter to... More

BAD as it is often called is a quaint little escape just south of downtown Dallas. Galleries, unique boutiques and countless amazing dining options and two chocolate stores. Feels like a vacation every time we go.
