Five Best Neighborhoods in Dallas — Lakewood

The people who live in Lakewood are different than other Dallas people. The stereotypes range from outdoorsy, to hippies clinging to the edge of the lake, to unpretentious, young families. Whatever the truth about the people may be, Lakewood is one of those magical places in Dallas where the people actually appear to appreciate its history. From the Lakewood Theater to dive bars like the Goat and Cock & Bull, the Arboretum, and oh, yeah, White Rock Lake, it’s just one more East Dallas spot worth spending time.
