Uptown Dallas

Are you Uptown?McKinney Avenue is the main street that runs through the Uptown area, which is located just north of downtown Dallas. Uptown is typically thought of as the most metropolitan part of the city. This neighborhood is filled with boutique shopping, trendy eateries, and most importantly the hustle and bustle of people everywhere. One of the fantastic and very unique features is the McKinney Avenue Trolley, which runs through Uptown free of charge (unless individually chartered for large groups). The trolley makes several stops at different locations such as; the West Village, the Dallas Theater Center, the Meyerson Symphony Center, the Dallas Museum of Art and many more of Dallas’ historic sites. McKinney Avenue/Uptown is home to many newly constructed apartment complexes, townhomes, and lofts. Another well known sector of Uptown is referred to as the State Thomas area. There are beautiful three story townhomes and apartment communities in State Thomas. If you are looking for a bustling urban environment, McKinney Avenue is most likely the right place for you
