Best of DART
We're fortunate to have top-notch cultural institutions, great parks and an amazing skyline in North Texas. Everyone has favorite "best" spots and we've compiled this partial list of ours.

Jukebox. Adair's Saloon, near Deep Ellum Station, has been in business since 1963 - it's one of the oldest bars in Dallas - and if it's not evident by the antique graffiti lining the walls, the classic burgers and the generally vintage vibe, the jukebox tells the tale: Think George Strait, Conway Twitty and Tammy Wynette, plus a few more modern selections for good measure.

Nature Walk. Tucked away mere steps from Galatyn Park Station is the Galatyn Woodland Preserve. The city fades away fast when you stroll on its multiuse trail through a creek valley area and along wetland ponds. There also are picnic areas, an animal sculpture playground and more. The trail links with the Spring Creek Nature Area, another natural respite.

Birdwatching. Campión Trail, near Las Colinas Urban Center Station is cool for many reasons - hiking, mountain biking, just general communing with nature - but it's especially beloved by local birdwatchers. The trail stretches for miles and comprises both wooded and unshaded sections for a well-rounded birdwatching experience.

Scenic Overlook. Maybe we're biased, but we love the terrific natural vista point at Camp Wisdom Station. The station sits on a hill in an expanse of nature that is still wild. Standing at the overlook - located along the walkway near the site's highest point - you can almost forget you're in Dallas.

Splash. Klyde Warren Park not only has children's spaces, lawn games and loads of other kid-friendly activities, it also has a terrific splash pad, and the backdrop is the spectacular Downtown Dallas skyline. Both the M-Line Trolley and D-Link will get you there or you can walk from Pearl/Arts District Station.

Farmers Market. One of the coolest around is the Farmers Branch Market. Not only do its vendors sell tons of fresh produce, but it often features live music, food trucks and other amenities that make for a great Saturday morning. It's shaded, too, situated mostly under an expansive grove of oak trees. The market is near Farmers Branch Station.
