There is plenty to do and see in this trendy Dallas neighborhood! Lakewood Theater is one of our favorites, which shows classic films and hosts many contemporary musical and comedy events. Also, you can check out the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. Here you can see the beautifully landscaped gardens and enjoy the Thursday live music concert series! They are always holding family friendly events in a gorgeous natural setting. One of the major Lakewood highlights is the huge Fourth of July parade and celebration, where everyone gathers to celebrate America’s Independence Day. Also, you have White Rock Lake nearby, where you can kayak or standup paddle board. The White Rock Lake Trail is one of the most prominent in Dallas, where plenty of people go to jog or walk around the lake for their daily exercise or a nice stroll at sunset.

Organic grocery shopping comes easy with Lakewood’s own Whole Foods Market. And check out nearby Times Ten Cellars for a great wine bar where you can sample different wines each week. Then head over to Curiosities, a antique store where you can find anything from one-of-a-kind trinkets to large captain trunks from the 1800’s. Definitely a unique experience in the heart of Lakewood’s shopping!

And if you’re looking to do some exercising without heading over to the lake, you can always stop in for a class at Crossfit White Rock where they will help you attain your fitness goals, whatever they may be. Or maybe you’re in the mood for something a little more relaxing? Stop in for a session at Sunstone Yoga, and they can help you improve your flexibility and your strength. Whatever you’re into, Smart City can help you find the perfect home nearby!

If you are looking for restaurants, don’t think that there aren’t any just because you are further out! The Lakewood Shopping Center is home to several eateries and retail shops. One of Smart City’s favorite lunch spots, Unleavened, is here! Unleavened is a cafe that serves delicious, health-conscious wraps and salads. If you’re looking for a great brew, Lakewood Brewing is a small craft brewery that offers tours and tastings! They also host live music events and often have food trucks on-site. Another fun thing to do here is attend an event at the Lakewood Theater!

There is a variety of properties to choose from that have a range of amenities. Best of all, you’ll be just a short Uber from the great bars and restaurants in neighboring Lower Greenville, while enjoying the affordability of being further from the city.

Don’t just take our word for it. See what our friends say!

Lakewood is beautiful, I couldn't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to live here! For those with an adventurous spirit, this is the spot to be.
