I typically am not a shopper when on vacation but found a couple of things I couldn't leave behind while in the Bishop Arts District. Great sales service too. Wish I had found it earlier!

Previous answers are excellent, Downtown is closest, but not walking, if they would finish trolley would add charm and option. Belmont Hotel in Oak Cliff, is an option but I think is really Pricy. Enjoy
