Just six minutes from our downtown Dallas apartments is a vibrant destination full of shops, restaurants, and museums. The West End Historic District blends old-fashioned charm with modern elements and welcomes over seven million people every year. Highlights include:

Old Red Museum 

Originally a courthouse, the Old Red Museum highlights the history of Dallas from its humble beginnings to a world-renowned city. The exhibits feature some of Dallas County’s most fascinating artifacts and showcase the many cultures of the Metroplex.

Don’t miss the Early Years Gallery covering prehistoric times through 1873. You’ll learn how settlements were nurtured along an inhospitable border and discover how two railroad lines came to call Dallas home. Display highlights include a mammoth tusk and John Neely Bryan’s original layout of Dallas. 

Dallas World Aquarium

Step into the Dallas World Aquarium to enjoy a one-of-a-kind journey around the globe. The aquarium works to aid conservation, and it houses threatened and endangered animals. Exhibits include Borneo, Mundo Maya, and South Africa. For added fun, don’t miss the penguin feedings and talks held daily at noon and 4:00 p.m. 

Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse 

Called one of the country’s finest steakhouses, the Y.O. Ranch is where the chefs use a century-old cooking method. They char the meat on a flat top griddle before searing and covering it with a secret finishing sauce. Both the beef and game are the freshest in town as they’re straight from the restaurant’s ranch in Hill Country. The Y.O. brand dates back to the 1800s, and the land is run by the Schreiner family’s sixth generation. Guests receive attentive service, and the waitstaff strives to make everyone’s evening memorable. Dinner offerings include filet mignon, prime ribeye, and venison chops.
