Bishop Arts District

Located in North Oak Cliff, the Bishop Arts District beautifully blends Old World charm with a hip, artsy vibe. The area is named for Arizona native William Davis Bishop, who purchased land in the 1887 township of Oak Cliff. By the early 1900s, an electric streetcar brought travelers to businesses lining Bishop Avenue and Jefferson Boulevard. Today, the Bishop Arts District is considered one of Dallas’ hottest neighborhoods. Spend an afternoon browsing the district’s dozens of indie boutiques, like Epiphany for trendy fashions or Dolly Python for vintage finds. When you work up an appetite, Bishop Arts has no shortage of delicious dining options, from vegan plates at Spiral Diner to classic Italian fare at Lucia. Catch a show at the Kessler Theater or sip craft cocktails at one of several lively bars. With its pedestrian-friendly streets and unique architecture, the Bishop Arts District lets your group immerse yourselves in Dallas culture.

Deep Ellum

First established in the late 1800s as an industrial and commercial district, Deep Ellum offers an edgy, artistic urban experience. Situated directly east of Downtown Dallas, the neighborhood originally attracted cotton warehouses, manufacturers, and other blue-collar businesses. Starting in the 1920s and 1930s, the area became a hotspot for blues and jazz clubs that drew diverse crowds. Though Deep Ellum fell into decline mid-century, it roared back in the 1980s and 1990s as an epicenter for Dallas’ burgeoning punk, alternative, and hip hop music scenes. Today, you’ll still find loads of live music venues in Deep Ellum, along with nightclubs, bars, tattoo parlors, art galleries, and more. Bring your group hungry, because this neighborhood boasts an array of finger-licking good restaurants serving up everything from barbecue to Vietnamese fusion. Spend an evening bar-hopping and catching live bands in this energetic corner of town.

Downtown Dallas

You can’t visit Dallas without exploring its vibrant downtown district. This is where you’ll find architectural landmarks like Renaissance Revival-style J.E.R. Chilton Building and the gorgeous flying red horse Pegasus atop Magnolia Oil Company Building. The area positively bustles with professionals during the workweek, and locals flock here on weekends to cheer on the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium or catch a concert at American Airlines Center. In Downtown Dallas, major attractions like The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, Reunion Tower, and the Dallas World Aquarium are all within close distance. Bring your crew hungry, because Downtown Dallas dining options abound—from Pecan Lodge’s melt-in-your-mouth barbecue to fine steaks at Al Biernat’s. Catch panoramic views of the Dallas skyline at Reunion Tower’s GeO-Deck observation deck or explore the 68-acre Klyde Warren Park, built over Woodall Rodgers Freeway. However you choose to spend your day, Downtown Dallas offers big city excitement.

Fort Worth Stockyards

About 30 miles west of Dallas, you’ll find Fort Worth’s famous Stockyards National Historic District. Step back in time to the area’s heyday in the late 1800s, when cowboys drove cattle down Exchange Avenue to holding pens outside the meatpacking plants. Today, the cobblestone streetscapes preserve Old West ambiance and let you experience Fort Worth history. Don’t miss the twice-daily Longhorn cattle drive that takes place right down Exchange Avenue at 11:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. At the Stockyards, your group can browse Western stores and souvenir shops where you’ll find everything from custom boots to quirky Texas kitsch. Chow down on barbecue brisket at Riscky’s or dig into chicken fried steak at Love Shack. Catch a rodeo show at Cowtown Coliseum—or better yet, learn to ride at the Stockyards Championship Rodeo School. However you choose to spend your time here, the Fort Worth Stockyards offers a rip-roaring good time for groups.

The Arts District

Spanning 68 acres just north of Downtown Dallas, this eclectic neighborhood celebrates artistic expression. Your group can admire outdoor sculptures at the Nasher Sculpture Center, take in a Broadway play at the Winspear Opera House, or be mesmerized by experimental dance performances at the Moody Performance Hall. The district’s anchoring institutions—the Dallas Museum of Art and the Crow Collection of Asian Art—showcase artworks from ancient to contemporary. When you’ve had your fill of the arts, the district offers loads of dining variety. Sip Spanish wines with tapas at Gloria’s Latin Cuisine or enjoy Southern comfort food at Ellen’s. The pedestrian-friendly sidewalks make the Arts District incredibly walkable, and the neighborhood comes alive for monthly Late Nights offering special events at museums and extended hours at eateries. Come appreciate the arts and culture of this Dallas hotspot.


Located immediately north of Downtown Dallas, Uptown delivers on upscale shopping, dining, nightlife, and residential towers—alongside inviting parks and green space. Begin your visit at West Village, where chic boutiques and excellent people-watching await. Your group can marvel at cutting-edge architecture while strolling along the Katy Trail, then cool off in one of Uptown’s fountains. When you work up an appetite, you’re spoiled for choice with Uptown eateries like Ocean Prime’s seafood and steakhouse fare or Velvet Taco’s famous array of taco innovations. Later, enjoy craft cocktails on the patio at Dragonfly or go club-hopping along popular McKinney Avenue. Uptown caters to a hip, affluent crowd from morning lattes to late-night revelry. Its endless options make it one of Dallas’ most popular (and walkable) destinations.

Greenville Avenue

Located northeast of Downtown Dallas, Lower Greenville Avenue delivers laid-back vibes with a mix of locally owned shops, restaurants, and watering holes. The area originally housed brick plants and gravel quarries in the early 1900s, later evolving into a Prohibition-era red light district known as “Cock O’ the Walk.” By the 1970s, Greenville Avenue transformed into a groovy retail and entertainment strip before falling into decline. Its recent revitalization makes it ideal for a lively night out. Today, Lower Greenville Avenue offers a low key alternative to Uptown’s “see and be seen” glamour. Linger over coffee at Ascension Coffee or dig intotacos al pastor at La Nueva Fresh & Hot. Later, catch live blues at Adair’s Saloon or challenge your friends to shuffleboard at Truck Yard. The independent spirit of Greenville Avenue shines through in farmer’s markets, street fairs, parades, and other community events that give it a charming, small-town vibe.

Legacy West

This shining new development transformed Plano from a staid Dallas suburb into a destination in its own right. Legacy West brings together high-end shopping, dining, and luxury residences conveniently connected by walkable green spaces. Your group can max out your credit cards at legacy retailers like Warby Parker and Louis Vuitton or discover upscale brands at Legacy Food Hall. When hunger strikes, you’re covered with an array of international dining options—from Chinese hot pot at Mala Sichuan to Italian fare at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. Outdoor public spaces like Legacy Hall’s box garden offer lush pockets for relaxing, while interactive fountains provide endless amusement for kids. Though Legacy West may lack “authentic” character, its open-air boulevards and Insta-worthy scenery make it perfect for an afternoon of leisurely strolling and browsing.
