White Rock Alehouse & Brewery, Dallas (this site closed 10:00 p.m. - 6:00 a.m.)

White Rock Lake offers a variety of activity options and is one of the best places to experience natural areas and wildlife in an urban setting. The botanical gardens are also nearby, right on the lake with beautiful photo ops.
Katy Trail Ice House, Dallas (this site closed 10:00 p.m. - 6:00 a.m.)
The Ice House is an Austin-style beer garden and restaurant, located in the heart of uptown Dallas on the Katy Trail. With fifty beers on tap, they have been awarded the best patio in Dallas with their open seating communal beer garden.
What was once an abandoned railroad line is now one of the most iconic destinations in Dallas: the Katy Trail. Each year, the park welcomes over 1.5 million visits to the beautiful scenery on 3.5 miles of well-maintained path, from SMU at its north end to the American Airlines Center in the south.
The history of the Katy Trail stretches back nearly a hundred years to the age of railroads. Union Pacific Railroad built the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad and established the network in 1865 as the Southern Branch. The route was also commonly called the K-T, and eventually the Katy. Following the heyday of the railroad, Union Pacific donated the abandoned lines to the city of Dallas in 1993. In the mid 1990s, a group of passionate neighbors and local businesses proposed that the line be converted into the beautiful greenbelt you see today.
