Rider Insider: DART to Historical Downtowns


City of Garland

What’s old is new again in the quaint downtown areas of Carrollton, Garland and Plano.

Carrollton’s Homegrown Delights

Downtown Carrollton is filled with homegrown restaurants, shops and attractions. Towering above them is the North Texas Outdoor Pursuit Center, where you can rock climb inside a former grain silo.  Ride DART’s Green Line to Downtown Carrollton Station to explore.

Old Meets New in Garland

In downtown Garland, early 20th-century storefronts mingle with newer additions to create an atmosphere that’s both nostalgic and modern. For a taste of today, head to Intrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery, where you can sample handcrafted beers, soda and barbecue, all in a funky industrial setting. Juxtapose the old with the new when you ride DART’s Blue Line to Downtown Garland Station.

Sweet Finds in Plano

The vibrant community in downtown Plano features art galleries, restaurants, unique shops and the performing arts. Want a decadent find? Try Dude, Sweet Chocolate, an artisanal chocolate shop that indulges in fudge, truffles and toffee. Give your sweet tooth something to remember when you ride the Red or Orange Line to Downtown Plano Station.
