The site of city founder John Neely Bryan's first settlement, Oak Cliff is one of Dallas' more established neighborhoods. Massive oak trees, hilly terrain and panoramic views of the Dallas skyline enhance Oak Cliff's beauty, and the location is convenient to Downtown, DFW Airport and Arlington attractions, plus The Dallas Zoo in Southwest Dallas. The Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff has attracted artists, restaurateurs, and boutique shop owners to this dynamic, creative mecca. Many of the area's 1920s architecture has been stunningly restored. Have lunch in a quaint bistro and hunt for the perfect souvenir in this unique Dallas enclave.
