Neighborhood: The Cedars

Just 5 minutes by car and 20 minutes by foot, the Cedars is another neighborhood phoenix. Although it’s been healthily populated for the last decade by businesses, recording studios, dive-bars, musicians and artists, in the last 2 years, more single-family housing, lofts and all the amenities that go with those things have found their way into the…

Neighborhood: Deep Ellum Expo Park

It rides on the cusp of Dallas the city, Dallas suburbia and where the residents are highly involved in Dallas business but still Facebook regular #resist-ance posts. Super friendly. Super scenic. Super authentic. Lots of great food, drink,…
