Uptown Dallas was once an outcast district, but it’s now one of the trendiest, most livable, and best designed areas in the city. It’s a popular place to live for many of Dallas’ discerning young professionals, who choose the walkable Uptown Dallas as an alternative to the urban sprawl you find in other parts of the city. Uptown’s neighborhoods include State Village, West Village, and LoMac.
Uptown Dallas’ Gallery Walk Shopping District is just what it sounds like: an artsy shopping area full of too-cool-for-the-mall boutiques. Uptown isn’t the place for Dallas’ best BBQ, but it does have the city’s best sushi, fine dining, and a true oenophile destination in the Cork Wine Bar.
Uptown neighborhoods are especially well-served by public transportation. The McKinney Avenue Trolley is a free streetcar system that runs throughout Uptown, and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Blue and Red lines connect Uptown to the rest of the city. The area is close to the Katy Trail, a park that used to be ugly, unused railroad tracks, but is now a paved path for biking, running, and inline skating.
Uptown is home to the AT&T Performing Arts Center, which includes the Winspear Opera House and Wyly Theatre, and is the neighborhood’s big-time cultural venue. There are many smaller gallery spaces throughout the area, and cool museums like the Crow Collection of Asian Art.
