Ready to get away? In 2000, this defunct branch of the “Katy” (Missouri-Texas-Kansas) Railway Line running through Dallas’s Uptown and Oak Lawn districts was transformed into a lovely landscaped rail-trail for cyclists, joggers, and anyone else seeking escape from the city’s bustle. Head over on a weekend afternoon and rub shoulders with locals strolling in the shade of the cedar elms and crepe myrtles—then toast the sunset with a margarita at the Katy Trail Ice House.
