Hungry? I’ve got you covered – grubbin’ is my specialty. Check out these #instaworthy bites. This is one area I won’t let ya’ down.
First off I would like to apologize to all North Texans and state fair enthusiasts everywhere. I just did not understand the hype at all. But I get it now, I get it. Big Tex is one of the coolest things I have ever seen and the corny dogs ARE that delicious. But now that that’s out of the way, lets move on. Did you know the Texas State Fair almost didn’t happen? Yup. A group of Dallas businessmen came together to start what was going to be called the Dallas State Fair, but the men could not agree on a location for the fairgrounds. C.A. Keating went out with his supporters and started the Texas State Fair at what is now Fair Park. They even opened the fair 1 day prior to their opposers to give them one last burn(ha). There is so much history that surrounds the Texas State Fair that I could not possibly tell you all of it but I thought that was such a cool little tidbit.
The Bishop Arts District is an up & coming neighborhood just south of Downtown Dallas and right in the middle of Oak Cliff. If you like to shop local and support small businesses, this is the place to go. Bishop Arts is Dallas’ self-proclaimed “most independent neighborhood.” There are over 60 different businesses featured in this hometown square setup. What I love most about Bishop Arts is their focus on exactly that, the arts. There are quite a few art galleries, shops that feature local artisans, street art murals and even live music. The kiddo in me just loves coming down here to visit all the pups hanging out with their owners on the street and swinging on the big swing by the Dallas Strong mural. But what we came down here for was obviously, the food.
Instagram has breathed some life into the street art world, thanks to tons of exposure from bloggers alike and photographers searching for the perfect backdrop. After moving here to Dallas, I quickly jumped on the bandwagon and decided it was time to go on a hunt for the most sought after backgrounds for profile pics. I plan on stumbling upon many many more of these but this is as far as our adventures has taken me-so far.
