    The Lakewood area has been a highly desired area to live in for years. It doesn't matter if you're leasing or buying, this area has always been about the location. Located minutes away from downtown Dallas, Lakewood has been known for the location partly due to the historic Lakewood Theater & Center. The theater has been vacant looking for a new tenant. Word on the street is they are going to gut the building splitting it into three restaurants. The outside integrity will stay the same. The majority of Lakewood neighbors want the theater to remain a theater for now. But lets see if attitudes change when/if the change comes.

    Where there is water, they will come. The Dallas settlers thought steamboats would be able to come through the river. Many settlers come here to work. It was the railroads which made Dallas flourish in 1872.

    Dallas was built around the Thomason Hall Community for the people by the people where the stories live on. Dallas was so busy with a movie theater, cafes, (including the Gypsy Tea Cafe) churches and everything you needed within six blocks. Central Expressway once was called "Central Track". Dallas had a sense of a "safe feeling" in Kessler, Oak Cliff and all of South Dallas.

    Oak Cliff was annexed in 1903 with tasty artisan water and much to do. Schools and colleges opened up for men and women. Check out the historic 10th Street District today. There is much to learn about Dallas, the "Big D". Check out the video below that I found about the beginning of Dallas. It's a bit long but well worth the watch if you're interested in Dallas history.

    If you are traveling from Oklahoma, or even McKinney, down Interstate 35 and you have not been that way past downtown in a couple of years, here is a fair warning. West is west and south is east! What I am trying to say is, if you are familiar with the way Interstate 35 was a couple of years ago, then you want to drive a little slower your first time getting through the city highway interchange now.

    Going south on I-35, you will need to get in the far left hand lane to go I-30 East/West. You will need to get in the far right hand lane to go I-35 south toward Waco. Once you pass the downtown exits to 75/45 then 1-30 East, you have to snug up next to the far left lane but don't get in it - stay next to it.

    Google search the map and check out the new directions of the interstate exchange before you go! This ain't Kansas anymore! Wait...it was never Kansas but it's different and you should know before you go! Click on the link below for an update and history of the changes.

    Being a Dallas Stars season ticket holder for many years now has given me a reason to visit American Airline Center and Victory Plaza. I've always been amazed by the large television screens and the bright lights they installed, plus the fun we have when we go there is unbeatable.
    The past couple of years they've not only added several parking garages, to the area, but also an extreme amount of places to live in condominium style set up's. You can literally walk from your condo to American Airlines Center. If I was still in my 20's that would be ideal!

    The downtown Dallas skyline has changed a lot and is even more beautiful. This area has grown so incredibly that you may not recognize it. Actually the photos I posted are some taken from the 20th floor of the condominiums above the Hard Rock Cafe. They are an amazing view of the city I love so much. But then I love all of Texas!

    Going to see a concert in Deep Ellum, near downtown Dallas, is one of my favorite hot spots to see a show. The concert venues are small and more intimate than the large arenas. Plus if you haven't been down here lately, put it on your "must do" list. You'll find new trendy shops, awesome food and it's not just rock n roll anymore. I love Deep Ellum, Texas!!!

    Have you seen downtown lately?? Like have you actually driven downtown under the Omni lights and around the Victory Plaza?? It's incredibly bright! Downtown has always had a beautiful skyline with the staple green building, that now turns to other colors on special occasions. But now you'll find many of the buildings lined with neon lights or lit up with brilliant LED. The Dallas skyline is and will always be one of my favorite skylines because of its beauty, especially driving from the east while the sun is setting.
