Day Trip Dallas: Shop & Stay in Salado, Texas

Cattle Drive

Known as the “Best Art Town in Texas,” this quaint town of antique shops, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, parks, and history hides the harsh history that is Salado, Texas–a gem of a town. Eighteen of the old buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as the Chisholm Trail came right down Main Street. Today, our two hour drive south from Dallas is nothing compared to the challenges that faced the riders on those trips!

Prellop Fine Art Gallery

Hungry? Head over to the Stagecoach Inn – a local landmark founded in 1861 as the Shady Villa. It’s gone through many evolutions, but the iced tea is cold, and the menu (recited to you, not read) includes world famous favorites like the Strawberry Kiss dessert.  Other restaurants in the area: the Ambrosia Tea Room, El Tapatio, Inn on the Creek, Johnny’s Steaks and BBQ, The Range at Barton House, Salado Wine Cellar, Las Casas Mexican Restaurant, and Browning’s courtyard Cafe.

Inn on the Creek

There’s plenty of shopping: galleries, specialty foods, furniture, books, collectibles, antiques, fashion/clothing, gifts of all kinds. If you love custom jewelry, stop in to Gregory’s–you won’t be disappointed!


Christmas in October is coming on October 9th & 10th, so plan a stay at one of Salado’s hotels, bed and breakfasts, or cottages.

See you there!
