Where to Live
If you'd love to live in a fine, old estate, you might be able to find it here. Some are public, while others are nestled behind hedges or walls. There are also tall condominium buildings, modern architecture turned into living spaces, vintage townhomes, and a smattering of smaller homes, all within walking distance of shopping, entertainment, and offices. This is a neighborhood that has it all!
Where to Eat
The Mansion on Turtle Creek is a revered restaurant in a classic old hotel -- white glove service and a very special ambience have made it a favorite for special celebrations for at least 35 years. But there are plenty of other places to satisfy your food cravings, from fine dining to neighborhood bistros. Head on over to The Quadrangle on Routh where you'll find everything from Thai to Tacos, Italian to ice cream! There are mom and pop cafes and chain favorites, and you're sure to enjoy yourself, whether you stop for a coffee by yourself or join a large group for a night out on the town.
What You'll See
Well-dressed business people, locals with dogs, nannies with baby carriages, trendy teenagers, serious shoppers, and serious sightseers are all common sights in Turtle Creek. This is a neighborhood that encompasses a wide range of activities, which appeal to young and old alike. And, because of its location between two of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city, Turtle Creek is never dull. Within minutes you can be in Downtown Dallas or on an expressway headed out of town.
Friday Night Fun
Getting out for fun is easy. Catch a foreign film at the Magnolia Theatre, enjoy a performance at Theater Three at the Quadrangle, ride the M-Line trolley just for fun or to get Downtown, meet friends for a drink at a score of popular bars and clubs, or enjoy a meal at any one of dozens of restaurants. Find arts and culture, sports, music, or special events by heading in any direction out of the neighborhood as well.
The Perfect Sunday
The best Sundays are spent taking in the beauty of the area, and there are many places to do just that. Lee Park and the stunning two-thirds replica of the Custis-Hall Mansion in Arlington, Va. will take your breath away. Or follow the trails that wind along Turtle Creek itself. Take to the Katy Trail for a brisk walk or jog, or sit and read at tiny, privately-owned Dragon Park.
