This is a wonderful area of Dallas with many unique restaurants and shops. There are a few chains here, but overall some great dinning. Parking can be a bit difficult at times, but overall worth it! Close to downtown and Uptown area!

An area of Dallas with restaurants and shops. A great area to walk around, explore the shops, have a drink and enjoy the time. Check out the soda fountain at the pharmacy. You do not see many now days!

For out of towners, this area is very confusing. Parking is very limited. Not sure I would come back and try to figure this out. It is definitely for the younger generation.
