Cool spot to stroll around, enjoy small local businesses, restaurants, coffee shop, even a chocolate chocolatier and a pie shop! Find a unique treasure for yourself or gifts. Whether you want a fine dining restaurant or a quick bite at an old fashioned burger joint, you can find it here. Easy stroll.

Love this area. Many good restaurants and strolling through the shops is a great way to spend an evening. Art works, clothing, and lots of cool, fun things to see and buy.

Had a great time strolling around the district before having lunch at Lockhart BBQ. I hadn't known that Dallas had so many bungalow houses. The Dallas Streetcar provides free transit from Union Station downtown, taking about 20 minutes and providing a fun trip over the Trinity River.

Take the D-line bus from downtown (free) to the trolley (free) and enjoy zipping along through a number of real neighborhoods. This one is a fun & funky place, full of interesting little shops and great places to eat.

Lots of interesting shops, restaurants and pubs to visit (try Lockharts for excellent bbq and Dude Sweet Chocolate for otherworldly chocolates) make the Bishop Arts District a worthwhile stop while visiting Dallas.

Nice area to walk around, shop and eat! We had lunch outside and enjoyed a beautiful Dallas day! Recommend a stop at Emporium Pies for dessert if you have time!

With out of town guests visiting for Christmas we looked for someplace to explore that would appeal to all. We found just that in Bishop Arts District. Great streets to stroll and check out fun shops and galleries--and then satisfy your chocolate craving!
