Southeast Dallas is a neighborhood in Dallas that's very near to the city center. It's nestled between many major roads, including E.R.L. Thornton Freeway, Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway, C.F. Hawn Freeway and Julius Schepps Freeway. Neighborhood residents can travel throughout the city via car, train or bus.
Because Southeast Dallas is so close to the downtown district, it's full of things to do. For example, Cotton Bowl Stadium sits in the northernmost part of the area, and it has been the site of several sports events. Big Ten schools have played football games in the Cotton Bowl, and soccer tournaments are held there as well. You may even see live music at the stadium. In fact, Aerosmith recorded its first live album there in the 1970s.
Just a few blocks away from the Cotton Bowl sit several museums, including the African American Museum, the Dallas Historic Society and the Children's Aquarium. If you'd rather spend your free time enjoying the warm Dallas weather, head to one of the area's many parks or golf courses.
As you move farther east in Southeast Dallas, the scenery becomes increasingly residential. You'll find restaurants and shops scattered amongst homes, apartments and schools.
