There's something for everyone in the heart of the Texas Star!
In Downtown Dallas, you will find numerous hotels, shops, restaurants and cultural activities, with most of the latter taking place in the renowned Arts District. Downtown is also the historical center of the city; it is here that Dallas’ first settlers planted their roots, so there is plenty to see of local historical significance. The new Light Rail line links the city center with the zoo to the south and shopping to the north.
The West End is "Dallas' Downtown Playground," a multi-block area of turn-of-the-century storefronts and warehouses that have been transformed into more than 100 shops, restaurants, galleries and nightclubs. Vintage street lights, horse drawn surreys and street performers add to the fun and nostalgia of the area.
