Katie from Los Angeles asked

What's the best neighborhood in Dallas for a first time visitor?

I've never been to Dallas and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Dallas is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!

Dallas (Texas)

Stay at the Belmont Hotel Dallas in the newly gentrified neighborhood of Oak Cliff. It is right next door to Smoke, an insanely good upscale take on BBQ from super chef Tim Byre. It is probably one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas. Other good BBQ in the area is Lockhart Smokehouse, in the Bishop Arts District, and of course Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum.

Hotels in the Downtown are central. They allow you to get to most places. The only downfall is expensive parking. The Arts District is great near downtown. Also, you can hit the freeway to shop at N Park Center or the Galleria Dallas quickly.

Omni Dallas Hotel is a good hotel to stay at and near Deep Ellum! Deep Ellum is a strip of sports bars to hang out and have a good time!

If your scoping for a move, family oriented, stay in North Dallas. DINKS, must stay Uptown Dallas, too much fun!! I'm from Florida and highly encourage visiting the Dallas World Aquarium and the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden and Dallas Zoo are a must see. Have fun

Uptown Dallas is great. Great food and locales for shopping. Just a short drive from the Downtown area as well without having to always be in the middle of traffic when you leave the place you are staying in. Lower Greenville is also a short drive away with many more restaurants as well as shops. Drive up to the White Rock Lake area and walk around the lake or visit the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden if you want to spend some time in nature.
