AOL Travel Editor’s Review

A visit to this lush, popular recreation area is one of the best Dallas things to do. Far from the bustling hordes in the Arts District, it really gives a taste of what it would be like to live in Dallas. It’s the city’s largest park, and there are opportunities to hike, bike, fish, walk dogs and picnic. The 1,015-acre White Rock Lake is a few miles northeast of downtown. Swimming is not allowed, alas, but kayaking and sailing are popular, and the shoreline is perfect for a jog or saunter. Several local companies, such as Kayak Power (214-669-1663), rent kayaks and some even deliver them to the lakeshore.
