Just got into Texas visiting my sister in law, we took a walk along the canal. Such a nice area, great architecture and nice shops. We stopped and watched a bird, possibly a Blue Herron as he tried to catch his dinner

This is by far a hidden gem in Los Colinas. I love walking and biking along this scenic canal with lots of great paths and sights.

This are is has so much character! I brought a light lunch with me and sat along the canal to just enjoy the scene. I took lots of pictures. The walls , archways, stairs , and bridge gave me lots of photo ops!

There are miles of canal to walk beside in Las Colinas. It's a bit more congested in the areas with many business and bars. This is a great place to run (except when you run through puffs of smoke from employees taking their break). The...More

Great experience for someone looking for something both different to do as well as romantic. A touch of Venice in Texas.

Yes - dogs can accompany you - the previous comment is correct, but of course not everyone follows that advice. When I was there there was a substantial pile that had to have come from a small horse. LOL

The Avocodo is the only restaurant on the canal walk. We did go there and enjoyed the experience. It os also good to stop and get a drink.
