Uptown Entrance

I have written about Uptown numerous times in my blog because it is an area that is growing with a younger crown in Dallas. Just north of Downtown Dallas the building boom is wild and shows no signs of slowing down.

Victorian Dallas

There is a cluster of Victorian era homes that still exist just north of Dallas. I don't believe that people still live in them but many of them have been turned into antique stores and other businesses. I think that they have done a great job restoring all of them.
