Just six minutes from our Dallas apartments for rent is one of downtown's most popular destinations.
It's called the West End Historic District, and it combines historic charm with modern elements and an eclectic atmosphere.
Established in 1872, the district is home to local shops, delicious restaurants, and world-class attractions.
Wild Bill's Western Store
Known as one of the city's "must see" locations, Wild Bill's has been a local institution for fifty years. Owner Bill Dewbre is honored to be called the "Western ambassador for the city of Dallas," and the store's awnings feature the beautiful artwork of the Old West. The staff strives to provide an unparalleled experience, and visitors may meet a celebrity or two during their visit. Items include straw hats, square toe boots, and belt buckles.
Gators is one of the finest places for a Cajun good time. For nearly thirty years, its goal has been to offer fantastic food and top-notch drinks. The service is always friendly, and the staff often knows regulars by name. It is where many enjoy a night on the town as the restaurant regularly hosts live bands, karaoke nights, and lively piano sing-alongs. The menu includes catfish, jambalaya pasta, and Southern chicken tenders.
The Dallas World Aquarium
Found in an old warehouse, The Dallas Work Aquarium aids conservation by housing many endangered or threatened animals. There are an array of exhibits to explore including Mundo Maya, which highlights plants and animals prevalent in Mayan folklore. Standing eight-stories, one of the highlights is a 400,000-gallon walk-through display featuring the rays, sharks, and sea turtles of the Yucatan Peninsula. Guests who are hungry can enjoy a meal at Cafe Maya. The menu features beef tacos and green chili enchiladas, and the Mexican wedding cookies are the perfect end to any meal.
