Northeast Dallas includes the Lakewood and Lake Highlands areas, quiet neighborhoods of cozy cottages and impressive mansions surrounded by recreational opportunities. Amid landscaped boulevards and historical charm is an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops. The area borders the north and west coasts of White Rock Lake, popular with cyclists, sailors, and anglers. Bring a picnic to enjoy the oasis. On the southeast shore of the lake, visit the Dallas Arboretum and tour their extensive botanical gardens, splendid in any season but most spectacular in the spring.
