The city's essential experiences. You're not a true local until you've done them all.
In Dallas, shopping is a full-contact sport. Fashionistas wield bags with gladiatorial vigor. Any good citizen knows where to start: Neiman Marcus. Its downtown location is the grand dame of luxury shopping locally, offering unparalleled service. Next, motor north to Uptown and Stanley Korshak. It's more approachable than the regal Neiman's but no less luxurious. We love this venerable retailer for The Shak, Korshak’s boutique with a youthful vibe. In the mood for a walk? The Mediterranean architecture of historic Highland Park Village offers a stylish outdoor respite from the air-conditioned mega malls that populate Dallas. Where else can you get a Chanel suit and your groceries all in one stop?  Illustration by Chip Wass
