I've lived in the metrolex for years and am happy to see the arts district continuing to grow and thrive with new venues. I went to an outdoor event that was well attended and it was a lot of fun.

Lots of shops in and surrounding deep Ellum & the arts district. The Klyde Warren Park, oddities & antiques galore, cool bars and more. Free unique outdoor activity. Walk or drive the streets of the arts district, either way a must see!

Art, Food and Music pretty much checks all my boxes. What a pleasant surprise to find it all in downtown Dallas! Museums, galleries and incredible installations. It's like a treasure hunt that just keeps getting better and better. Give yourself several hours to enjoy fully.

Lots of Morden art installations and designs often accompanied by music. Can take a while to find it all but that's half the fun

If you're into art museums, the Dallas Arts District is a very nice place to spend a day. There are various museums within walking distance but, for some, it may be a little physically tiring going from one museum to another but it's a good walking tour, especially on a nice day.

We were in Dallas for 3 days and walked around quite a bit. We were told by the doorman to check out this area, and glad we did! The area was very unique, it had beautiful artwork and art buildings, the area was very clean, and we felt safe at all times. We wish we would have had more time... More

I just love the Arts District....whenever it's below 80! There is so much to see, it's clean, well maintained, and things are within walking distance. The traffic flow is fairly good, 'tho there could be some improvement. All over, it's a great cultural hangout!

The area is well designed and easy to navigate with a little patience parking. We enjoy strolling through the park and well lit streets. There is a good energy present. The lights and the architecture are entertaining. There are plenty of good food options from high end at Stephen Pyles to the award winning food trucks. Great for families too.

Taking the public walking tour was a great way to enjoy the Arts District! I thought it would be boring but our guide really brought those buildings to life! He was a professor of architecture at the university and so he was very knowledgeable but he was able to explain it down to non-architects in an enjoyable way! Glad we... More

There is something for everyone here in this world class arts district - Broadway shows, opera, ballet, special guest artists, world class musicians and artwork, and Klyde Warren Park just around the corner. Dallas is a city of many cultural opportunities.
