Downtown Carrollton

The heart of Carrollton, the downtown area bustles with energy. Historic buildings now house trendy shops, restaurants, and bars that draw locals and visitors alike. Don’t miss the Carrollton Square for events like summer concerts and festivals. Snap pics in front of the Beaux-Arts style Old Carrollton County Courthouse, now home to the Carrollton Museum of History. And be sure to stroll down Main Street to shop the boutiques and savor a meal al fresco.

The Square

Anchored by the Carrollton Public Library, The Square neighborhood charms with tree-lined streets and Craftsman bungalows. It’s the perfect spot for an afternoon stroll before grabbing a bite at one of the area’s farm-to-table eateries. Many of the historic homes date back to the 1920s, so keep an eye out for architectural details as you pass by. In the summer, cool off with a handcrafted gelato while people watching in Merit Circle Park.

Oak Lawn

Oak Lawn offers big city energy with a neighborhood vibe. High-rise condos and apartment towers mingle with single-family homes and manicured green spaces. Catch an independent film at the historic Texas Theatre, then hit up one of the area’s happening gay bars for dancing into the night. Don’t miss the Dallas Zoo and Arboretum – home to thousands of animals and stunning gardens.

Bishop Arts District

Filled with the charm of early 20th century architecture, Bishop Arts District is one of Carrollton’s trendiest enclaves. Once downtrodden, the area is now thriving with local eateries, boutiques, galleries, and more.

Lower Greenville

Stretching along Greenville Avenue, this diverse community comes alive after dark. Music and laughter spill from the district’s lively pubs, bars, and lounges, while locally owned eateries dish up everything from ramen to Neapolitan pizza. BYOB painting classes and improv comedy add to the eclectic mix. And don’t miss the weekend mornings – that’s when the street fills with vendors at the Greenville Avenue Farmers Market.

Deep Ellum

Once a hotbed for jazz and blues, Deep Ellum still pulses with arts and music energy. Hit the streets to discover street art murals, live music venues, microbreweries, and urban wineries.
