Sample Itineraries

They say Dallas is the birthplace of shopping, and we think you’ll agree. No matter where you stay in Dallas, chances are you’re just steps away from some of the world’s best shops.

Allen Premium Outlets

Allen Premium Outlets is an upscale outlet center with an exciting collection of 100 stores offering everyday savings of 25- to 65-percent off designer and top brands including Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Burberry,  Guess, Kenneth Cole, Nike, Tommy Hilfiger, Polo Ralph Lauren, Zales and more.


Bishop Arts District

The Bishop Arts District used to sell itself as Dallas’ “best kept secret,” but it would be hard to call this trendy district a secret any longer. A two-block, former warehouse area in the South Dallas, Oak Cliff area, Bishop Arts is now home to some of Dallas’ most sought-after restaurants and its funkiest boutique shopping.


Galleria Dallas

Inspired by Milan Italy’s famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the massive Galleria Dallas features an impressive ice rink surrounded by 200 of the most celebrated shops from around the world. Galleria Dallas recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation that transformed it into one of Dallas’ most dynamic shopping environments with everything from Saks Fifth Avenue and Louis Vuitton to Gap, Pottery Barn and Hollister.


Highland Park Village

Opened in 1931, Highland Park Village is a designated National Historic Landmark and is the nation’s first planned shopping center. The developers traveled to Spain, Mexico and California to find inspiration for the beautiful Spanish Mediterranean architecture. Highland Park Village remains in pristine condition today and boasts some of the most revered boutiques and shops in the world, including Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Hermes, Escada and Jimmy Choo. The village also has specialty shops, local restaurants, a grocery store and a recently restored historic movie theater.


Deep Ellum

A former industrial area immediately east of downtown, today Deep Ellum is the city’s headquarters for live music, emerging visual and creative artists and the new Green Line of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) system. It’s also where you should head if you want to see the alternative side of Dallas; with the public art ranging from the hard to miss “Traveling Man” to incredible graffiti, Deep Ellum is our offbeat arts district. As far as food, the neighborhood has a pretty impressive collection of burger joints, higher end dining and great bars.



This popular two-mile district straddling North Central Expressway near downtown Dallas features an eclectic mix of residential, retail, nightlife and dining.  Visitors can tour the Henderson side, east of Central Expressway, for antique shops and one-of-a-kind boutiques.  The Knox side on the west features many unique home décor and interior design establishments.



Located just off the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) line, Mockingbird Station is the place to head for an urban, alternative shopping experience. With an Angelika Film Center as the centerpiece, visitors can check out a variety of bars and restaurants along with some great, inexpensive boutiques and national chains. Francesca’s, Urban Outfitters and West Elm are just a few of the options at this vibrant complex.


Neiman Marcus

Established in Dallas in 1907, Neiman Marcus is the luxury department store that put Dallas on the international retail map.  Founded by Herbert Marcus, sister Carrie Marcus and her husband A.L. Neiman, in the early twentieth century, the store featured exclusive lines offered nowhere else in the South.  In 1926, the legendary Stanley Marcus took over the reigns from his father and the store grew to become a major player in international fashion.  The downtown Dallas location is the flagship store and still carries the grace and style of its early beginnings.


Northpark Center

NorthPark Center offers the unique combination of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest selection of boutiques and restaurants surrounded by world-renowned 20th-century art and award winning architecture. The mall recently completed a $220 million expansion project that brought 110 new establishments. Here shoppers will find an incredible assortment of department stores from Dillard’s to Barneys New York, numerous specialty stores, restaurants and an AMC 15-screen movie theater.


Park Lane

The Shops at Park Lane is the ultimate urban neighborhood located in mid-town Dallas on a 33.5-acre mixed-use development. Park Lane boasts 600,000 square feet of savvy stores, boutiques and restaurants including a new Whole Foods, Saks off Fifth and Old Navy, to name just a few.


West Village

This shopping village in Uptown Dallas has become a fashion destination for the younger set.  With trendsetting boutiques, vintage collections, art galleries, restaurants, nightlife and a Magnolia movie theater, West Village is a one-stop shop for all things new and hip.  Ann Taylor Loft, Brooks Brothers, Tommy Bahama, Cowboy Cool and Spa Habitat are a few of the eclectic vendors that visitors will find in the neighborhood.
