Dallas Apartments Close to World-Class Outdoor Activities

Dallas apartmentsDallas apartments are close to many world-class outdoor activities. From hike and bike trails to outdoor arts, Dallas apartments put you right in the heart of it all.

Many who live in Dallas apartments like to get out and explore the city’s scenic trails. Over 100 miles of hike and bike trails are located near to Dallas apartments. Those living in the multitude of Dallas apartments near Oak Lawn and Uptown love the 3.5 mile Katy Trail because of its wide path for walkers, skaters, and cyclists and its accompanying rubber trail for runners. The Katy Trail replaced former Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT or Katy) railroad tracks as part of the Rails to Trails program and with a beautiful landscaping and peeks of the skyline, is fast becoming a trendy spot for outdoor activity.

Arguably even more popular trails can be found near Dallas apartments a bit farther east at White Rock Lake.  Hugging the shore of the lake, the nearly 10-mile hike and bike path is enjoyed by walkers, runners, cyclists, and skaters alike. It offers lovely views of the water as well as urban wildlife and wildflowers. Coupled with the White Rock Creek Trail, runners and cyclists can get in a challenging but pleasant 25-mile workout.

If appreciating art is more your style, Dallas apartments are near a couple great options for you too. The Nasher Sculpture Center’s outdoor gallery space is one and a half acres and features around 25 large sculptures. With well over 150 trees, the shady garden keeps visitors comfortably cool.  Those who live in Dallas apartments especially enjoy the pools, fountains, and stone pathways that lead to a reflective, meditative environment right in the heart of downtown Dallas.

Apartments can sometimes put you out of touch with nature. The 66-acre Arboretum and Botanical Garden can get you back in touch. It has been named by several national sources as a top attraction to visit, especially to see spring flowers and plants. What’s more, the space frequently hosts concerts and art shows throughout the year. In fact, from May to November 2012 the Arboretum will be home to more than 15 impressive sculptural installations by famous glass artist Dale Chihuly.
