A DAY IN DALLAS
I must say, I didn't know much about the cities of Texas when I was on my flight headed to Houston to begin a week-long tour for work. I didn't think I was going to have much time to explore since the schedule was so jam-packed. But, when we were on the last leg of the trip in Dallas, the Nor'easter storm hit, gifting me an extra day in the city. And I couldn't have been happier to get stuck with the beautiful day that it turned out to be.
BISHOP ARTS DISTRICT
This was such a charming, peaceful, and oh-so-photogenic little neighborhood southwest of downtown. There was tons of artwork displayed all over the walls and I had plenty of fun having a little photo shoot with myself and my camera timer. I may have gotten a couple weird looks, but I didn't mind. I was just super happy with the gorgeous weather that I was escaping Nor'easter for! When I found a spot at Oddfellows for brunch, I even met some friendly locals. It really was perfection.
This was another really great neighborhood in Dallas recommended by my new friend, Danny. Deep Ellum has a bit more of a lively vibe across two main streets with some great shops and restaurants.
It was close to the end of the day and I, unfortunately, had a plane to catch. But, before I had to run, I did experience some great pop up shops, more wall art and a great street fair where I collected some beautiful new crystals! With the rushing around, I didn't really get the change to take many photos, but I did grab a couple. Next time I find myself in Dallas, I will definitely be revisiting this area to explore more!
