East Dallas Is 

The East Dallas area is eclectic, diverse, and a beautiful community bounded by Central Expressway to the west, Mockingbird Lane to the north, Loop 12 (Northwest Highway) to the east, and Fair Park to the south.  The two most popular areas of East Dallas would be the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake - and they are right next door to each other.  Fodor's Travel explains the gardens the best - "Spend an hour or two here to escape the noise and traffic of the city, walk nature trails, admire sculpture, and recline in soft, manicured grass."    There are many events held at the Arboretum from weddings, to a pumpkin patch, a Tulip festival, Christmas events and more.  

There are many different styles of homes within East Dallas.  There are streets that curve through neighborhoods surrounded by mature trees.  Area subdivisions could have cottages, ranch style homes, contemporary, English style, tudors, and mid-century modern.  There is even a subdivision called Little Forest Hills who has all of those styles and more.
