Family Fun Guide To White Rock Lake

Sometimes I feel like Dallas is just a maze of highways and skyscrapers. The Metroplex is a booming metropolis and it shows, but then I remember areas around town that actually resemble a place with culture, history, beauty, and community. One of these places that I have grown to love is the White Rock Lake Area. Surrounded by lush landscape and outdoor activities galore, it is the perfect place to bring the family (and the dog!) or just to enjoy an afternoon with friends.
