Designed with innovative urban character, Uptown has become the most desirable area to live with the top walkability score in the city. The infamous 3.5 mile Katy Trail that runs through the heart of Uptown is a hot spot to get your workout on, take the pup for a stroll, or get the squad together for an easy walk down to American Airlines Arena. Named one of Dallas’ ‘favorite places’, restaurants such as the Ice House have easy access to the trail. Feel free to stop and grab a beer before finishing that run.
