View Map

Downtown Dallas is the bustling center of business for this Texas city, featuring a densely urban skyline with high-rise offices and surrounding apartment and condominium complexes. History has not been ignored: the West End Historic District encompasses 19th century brick warehouses that now hold a variety of local shops, restaurants and bars.

The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts offers nationally renowned entertainment and newly revitalized Main Street has restaurants, bars and residences. The Dallas World Aquarium and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park are also located here, along with the headquarters for several national and international corporations, including 7-11.

Klyde Warren Park, a deck park over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway, provides green space in, along with the Trinity River Corridor, with popular paths for walking, jogging and biking.
