Destination Dallas

With so many great neighborhoods in Dallas, it’s hard to pick which to explore.

When you hop off the bus in downtown Dallas, we want you to explore the best our city has to offer. Dallas has several neighborhoods surrounding downtown each with their own distinct characteristics that make each of them a great place to go. If it’s your first time to Big D, we definitely want you to see the JFK Memorial and Klyde Warren Park, but once you’re done pick one of these neighborhoods to head next.

  1. 1Fair Park

    While this technically isn’t a neighborhood in Dallas, Fair Park itself is so large it might as well be. With the annual State Fair of Texas kicking off on September 30 and lasting through October 23, no trip to Dallas would be complete without stopping for a corndog!

    Try some of the new foods at the fair this year include: 

    • Deep Fried Cheeseburger Basket
    • Deep Fried Tailgate Party
    • Fried Flan Cake
    • Milk Chocolate Bacon on a Stick
    • Pumpkin Spice Donut Chip

    Address:  3921 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Dallas, TX 75210

  2. 2Deep Ellum

    Once Dallas’ go-to place for jazz and blues in the 1920’s, Deep Ellum has stayed true to its roots more than a century later and is one of the city’s best known neighborhoods for live music, food and grade-A art. Whenever exploring downtown, hop on DART and head east just a few stops for lunch. 

    You can stroll the streets taking in all the street art, and pop in and out of local shops while you pick where to go from some seriously amazing eateries. 

    The line is long and the wait is worth every second. Get here early because once they sell out, they’re done for the day. There’s a reason this place is constantly ranked as one of the best barbeque joints in the state.

    Address:  2702 Main St, Dallas, TX 75226

    Serious Pizza
    When you’re looking for a pizza joint with true local flare, stop at Serious Pizza. Between the graffiti on the wall, stickers everywhere and colorful posters, this place is true to Deep Ellum style. While you wait, watch them spin the dough in the window. Their huge pizzas deliver giant slices so you won’t walk away hungry. 

    Address:  2807 Elm St, Dallas, TX 75226

    Monkey King Noodle Co.
    It might be a hole-in-the-wall but if you’re looking for authentic northern-Chinese street food then this is your place. From noodles to dumplings, you’ll grab your dish from the counter to go or take it upstairs to the rooftop patio to enjoy it.

    Address:  3014 Main St, Dallas, TX 75226

  3. 3Lower Greenville

    Whether you want brunch with a view, a cool place to sit and chat with friends or something to cool down with on a warm day, this is the place to go. 

    Truck Yard
    This place is perfect for adults and kids during the day which is why it's become a local favorite.  Get a Philly cheesesteak or ice cream then grab a seat in the back yard or on the patio.  There are also rotating food trucks that make an appearance at the Truck Yard throughout the day so you just might find yourself spending the day here. 

    Address:  5624 Sears St, Dallas, TX 75206

    HG Supply Co. 
    This is where meat-lovers and vegetarians can eat in harmony.  Here you'll find delicious and modern variations of the hunter and gatherer theme.  You can eat inside but when the weather is nice, don't miss the opportunity to sit outside on the rooftop patio. 

    Address:  2008 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206

    Steel City Pops
    No matter the weather, sometimes you just want to cool down with a popsicle. While walking around Lower Greenville, Steel City Pops is your go-to spot.  While they have traditional flavors it's the specialty pops that they're known for. From creamy pops like avocado, coffee, coconut and peanut butter to fruity pops like blackberry, raspberry-lemon and mango, there's a flavor or two for whatever you're craving. 

    Address:  2012 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206
