My goal is to one day travel the world, but for now I'm enjoying being a tourist in my own state. I moved to the Dallas area about a year ago and still have so much to explore. Dallas has so much to offer! This weekend we decided to explore the Bishop Arts District. The parking situation was a little frazzling because, well, there wasn't any, but other than that I absolutely loved this area! The streets were clean, the buildings were gorgeous, and graffiti was so colorful and creative.
This is a unique neighborhood because it is home to over 60 boutiques, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and art galleries. It all began back in the 1930s when this neighborhood was considered the busiest trolley stop in Dallas, TX. Since then this neighborhood has flourished making it a place to be visited.
Where to Eat
The food options seemed to be endless as it ranged from Hamburger shops to Vietnamese Pho. My husband and I ate at Hunky's Old-Fashioned Burgers and had the Avocado Swiss Burger (it was yummy). Their menu had plenty of options and was very reasonably priced: $10 and less.We will be adventuring back there because I would like to try Oddfellows, Dallas Grilled Cheese Co., Cretia's, Whitehall Exchange, and Emporium Pies.
Things To Do
I specially fell in love with a boutique called, Laughing Willow. Everything in that store was adorable and the candles smelled amazing!! We also toured GingerFox Art Gallery while we were there and I was astonished by some of the artist creativity. There were tons of different shops, barber shops, coffee shops, wineries, brunch spots,and they even host different events such as wine walk, pumpkin fest, and small business Saturday mimosa walk.
I'm glad we made the trip and I cannot wait to go back and explore longer. We will be planning our next trip around one of their events :)
