Welcome To Dallas

Dallas is the most populated city in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. DFW is home to the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League, and you'll regularly be reminded of The Metroplex's mass enthusiasm for the team. Dallas is also known for its glorious shopping centers, with more per capita than any other city in the United States. Downtown (West End Historic District, Reunion District, Government District, Convention Center District, Arts District, City Center District, Main Street District, Farmers Market District) - Downtown continues to grow residentially at a rapid pace and will keep you entertained with a phenomenal nightlife scene. Oak Lawn and Uptown (Turtle Creek, Design District, Victory Park, West Village, Cedar Springs) - This area is a high-rise living made up of beautiful townhomes, apartments, and condos. Along with the living you'll find amazing shopping grounds in the Uptown area. In the Oak Lawn area you'll find it includes the LGBT-friendly district of Cedar Springs. East Dallas (Lower Greenville, Deep Ellum, Old East Dallas, Lakewood, Casa Linda Estates) - The closer-in areas are some of the "streetcar suburbs" with neighborhood strips filled with restaurants, taverns, coffeehouses, wine bars, and vintage shops. A large oasis of laid-back in a sometimes uptight city, homey-but-hip East Dallas is a great place to mingle with locals. Lake Highlands - A largely residential area north of East Dallas borders Garland on the north and Mesquite on the east. North Dallas (Preston Hollow, Far North Dallas) - This area is made up of several upscale neighborhoods north of the Park Cities. Park Cities (Highland Park, University Park) - Highland Park and University Park are independent towns within the borders of Dallas. They are located north of the Uptown area. Park Cities is considered to be one of the wealthiest areas in all of DFW. It is almost all residential, but also offers world-class shopping opportunities at Highland Park Village. Northwest Dallas (Koreatown, Love Field area) - The city's second biggest airport resides in Love Field. The area's borders are roughly formed by I-635 LBJ to the north, the Dallas North Tollway to the east, the border with the City of Irving to the west, and the Trinity River to the south. West Dallas - This area features the one-of-a-kind Belmont Hotel, which has arguably the best views of downtown. The neighborhood is now accessible via the recently completed Margaret Hunt-Hill Bridge, which crosses the Trinity River and connects to Woodall Rodgers Freeway. Oak Cliff (North Oak Cliff, Kessler Park, Bishop Arts District, South Oak Cliff, Cockrell Hill) - North Oak Cliff is another "streetcar suburb" and is home to upscale homes, from vintage 1930's bungalows, to mid-century modern, to new contemporary. The Bishop Arts District is one of the city's hottest areas for new restaurants, cafes, and boutiques, drawing an eclectic crowd in which the creative class and the gay community are well-represented. North Oak Cliff is a slice of Austin in Dallas. South Dallas (Fair Park area, Pleasant Grove, The Cedars, Southside, Exposition Park) - This area is home to the famous Texas State Fairgrounds. The park is open all year and is home to multiple museums. Also residing in this area is the amazing Cotton Bowl Stadium where The University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma face off every year in the fall during the Texas State Fair. Some area attractions often thought of as Dallas attractions are actually located in the suburbs, notably the following: Addison, almost surrounded by North Dallas, has a lot of restaurants and shopping packed into its 4 square miles. Arlington, home to AT&T Stadium, Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, and the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, lies to the west of Dallas. Irving, formerly the home of the Dallas Cowboys' stadium, Texas Stadium (now demolished), serves as the eastern gateway to DFW International Airport. Frisco, a northern suburb surrounding the Dallas North Tollway and State Hwy 121, is home to the Stonebriar Mall, IKEA, the Frisco RoughRiders baseball team, and the Major League Soccer team FC Dallas, which plays at Toyota Stadium. The stadium is nestled into a cluster of restaurants and shopping near old downtown Frisco. The suburbs of Carrollton and Lewisville, north along I-35E, have less to offer in terms of attractions, but provide ample tourist accommodations, plenty of restaurants, and are reasonably close to any Dallas destination. The same might be said for Richardson and Plano, which lie north from Dallas along US-75. Grapevine, just north of DFW Airport, has a nice historic main street area and numerous wineries.
