10 Best Places To Take Pictures In Dallas
1. Bishop arts district
With great tourist potential, it has become a mandatory stop for those looking for something different and exciting. Its bohemian, unique, and Latinx vibe in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of South Dallas is the perfect background to highlight any photo. It is one of the hot spots in East Dallas thanks to its colorful murals, restaurants, and street art everywhere.
Bishop Arts District is a fun place to explore simply on foot (also like Deep Ellum, this is one of the most walkable areas of the city); There are over 60 independent shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and art galleries here, but you don’t need to spend a penny to have a great time at Bishop Arts. Stroll past galleries and art collectives, browse antiques at M’Antiques, and visit The Wild Detectives, an adorable bookstore, café & bakeries (Emporium Pies), and bar that has been called the literary heart of Dallas.
2. Deep Ellum murals
Named the entertainment district of Dallas, made up largely of art venues, restaurants, and shops, it’s also a one-of-a-kind place for your family photos. If you like colorful photos this is the place for you. Best of all, you can walk around its streets looking for the best mural and at the same time take advantage of visiting its restaurants and shops.

Make plans to spend an afternoon here, soaking up the vibrant atmosphere, window shopping, and looking at all the eye-catching murals dotted around the old brick buildings.
3. Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
In addition to serving as a new icon for the Dallas skyline, which is basically what is sought with the Calatrava seal, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge also acts as a figurative gateway into the city and photo ops for everyone.

It is one of the most emblematic towers of the city which was built in 1978. At the top of this tower, there is a ball which contains a revolving bar-restaurant, the famous Five Sixty (it is a reference to the height of the tower, 560 feet or 171 meters). The ball itself is surrounded by a metal mesh that contains nearly 260 lamps, which helps to spot the tower in the middle of the night, no matter where you are in Dallas. Climb to the top for a drink in this bar while admiring the most amazing views.
