Within Walking Distance:


  • The Bishops Arts District is one of Dallas' most charming neighborhoods. It's a favorite among locals, featuring independent boutiques, art galleries, and unique dining choices. 

  • NorthPark Center will delight every shopper! This enclosed mall is home to over 200 retailers including luxury boutiques like Balenciaga, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and more. NorthPark also offers more than shopping, with a botanical program and art exhibitions.

  • Highland Park Village is an upscale shopping mall and National Historic Landmark, due to its distinct open-air Spanish-Mediterranean style. Home to around a dozen restaurants and 50 boutique-style shops, this is a great place for a stroll around the landscaped grounds while enjoying a spot of shopping in Dallas.
