I don't really get this being an attraction. There are some beautiful old houses but that is all. It's not much fun, kinda boring.

The area showcases some of the most beautiful homes in Dallas. Great for a Sunday afternoon excursion.

It's a pretty street not very long and surrounded by gentrifying streets. The homes are historic. You can drive it.

A bubble of history with amazing estates right in the middle of Dallas - nestled between downtown and White Rock Lake. A must visit.
