"Quiet street in a buzzing area"

I used to live at the Douglas Park Apartment Complex about 10 years ago and I really miss living there. The street itself isn't the prettiest or the most active, but the streets surrounding it like Lemmon Ave and Cedar Springs are packed with party goers and fun seekers every weekend. About 10-15 years ago, this street was mostly filled with houses and apartment complexes but now it's mostly commercial buildings.

Right across the street from each other is a Tom Thumb and a Kroger and right down the street of that is Cedar Springs, Dallas' "gay" district. Although I've never hung out in the Cedar Springs area, some of my friends (straight and gay) rave about it. If you're not into the gay scene, not too far from Douglas Ave. is Lemmon Ave. where there are tons of restaurants and bars to choose from.

I haven't been to Douglas Ave in the recent years but the last I remember it, it's an old street but they do keep it very clean. Because Douglas Ave is really a by street into Cedar Springs and Lemmon Ave, there are a lot of cars during traffic hours and on weekend nights.

This area is great for young couples and singles who like to party, but I don't recommend its for families with kids.
