Love the McKinney Avenue Trolley! Have rode it many times, great way to see a lot of updown Dallas. Took the whole family after enjoying the food trucks at Klyde Warren for Memorial Day.

Eat at Rustic, walk one block to catch the free trolley to Klyde Warren park (lots of games and activities to do there for free), then walk back up McKinney for window shopping and peoplewatching.
