Visiting Dallas next weekend

We are driving down to Dallas and staying at the Radisson Dallas Love Field. Is this an ok area? There is a convention we are going to near there, so it seemed like an ideal choice. But I read in the paper here that its a high crime area. So Im just curious if I should pack the pepper spray! ;)

Also looking to dine somewhere nice that saturday evening. Any cuisine would be good......... any suggestions? Any good shopping nearby?

There are high crime sections around the airport, but your location should be fine. I'd pack the pepper spray, just because I always do. I'm always aware of being at risk.

The best shopping would be at NorthPark mall at Northwest Highway and Central (I-75).

If you're interested in Mexican than I'd suggest the Blue Mesa Grill in Lincoln Square, just across from NorthPark on Northwest Highway.
