Uptown is the area directly north of downtown Dallas and encompasses the McKinney Avenue corridor, historic neighborhoods, and accesses the popular Katy Trail. Revitalized and booming, the Uptown / McKinney Avenue corridor is a long-time hot spot – reborn. Take a short stroll from the bustling activity on McKinney Avenue, you will discover the historic residential neighborhoods. Designed to resemble the Brownstones of Boston and the elegance of Park Avenue, this is Dallas urban living at its best. Today, some of the finest dining and nightlife in Dallas is within walking distance in the Uptown area. Uptown is also home to traditional plays, experimental theater, movies and music and the nearby Arts District is home to more museums and the symphony. There are just as many things to do during the day, such as browsing through the numerous antique stores that cluster around Routh Street and The Quadrangle, an open-air shopping center, or walking the Katy Trail.
