The 2017 Local's Guide to Dallas || Best Restaurants, Bars, Coffee Shops, Desserts, Salons and Boutiques

August 10, 2017

 

What started as a simple $100 giveaway celebrating reaching 20,000 followers on Instagram turned into an even bigger idea as I started to see my loyal, local Dallas following begin tagging their favorite Dallas restaurants, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, salons and boutiques. The little hamster wheel inside my brain started turning and I thought, wait!, why don't I turn this into a complete local's guide to Dallas?? So, that's just what I've done. I've compiled all of your favorite Dallas spots into one ultimate local's guide to Dallas. Where to eat, drink, shop and play in Dallas. 

 

Also, yes, this list is gigantic: 150+ Dallas spots. I recommend turning it into a bucket list, of sorts. I've included a "notes app" compatible checklist for you to download right to your phone. 

 

The best part about compiling this list, you can't judge my choices because I did not pick them, you guys did 😂
