While the West End is well known for its rich history, it is still one of the most popular destinations in Downtown Dallas today. In fact, over 7 million people visit the West End each year, making it one of the leading tourist attractions in the city of Dallas. The district is comprised of century-old brick warehouses that have been refurbished into dozens of restaurants and shops. The West End has always stayed true to its historic aesthetic and old charm, but now offers more attractions, entertainment, dining, and shopping options than ever.
Things to Do in Downtown Dallas
From world-class museums like the Sixth Floor Museum to authentic shopping for Texas western wear at Wild Bill’s Western Store, hearty wild game dinners at YO Ranch Steakhouse, and ending the day with a cold one at Gator’s, there is plenty to do in the Dallas West End. It is close enough to other Downtown Dallas destinations that you can stop by for a quick bite, but is also saturated with a wide variety of activities for those who wish to spend the entire day here.
One of the best things about the West End is its walkability. Although the district is full of attractions and things to see, you can navigate through each of your destinations safely and efficiently.
Something for Everyone
Many other areas in Dallas are designed to be enjoyed by a very specific demographic. However, the West End offers activities for every age group and interest. A family of four can enjoy a day at the Dallas World Aquarium followed by an Italian lunch at Spaghetti Warehouse. A young couple can enjoy a romantic night out with a lobster dinner at Palm Restaurant before a horse drawn carriage tour through the city. A couple of friends can grab a drink at Hard Rock Café before or after cheering on the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Center. A group of tourists can take a Segway tour through Dealey Plaza, Old Red Museum, and Dallas Holocaust Museum.
No matter what you enjoy or where you are from, you will find something you love at the Dallas West End. It is truly a go-to entertainment destination for Dallasites and tourists alike.
