    Joe Pool Lake, 7,740 acres near Grand Prairie and Cedar Hill about 15 miles from downtown Dallas, opened to heavy crowds in 1989 and continues to gain in popularity. It is a good recreational lake and a fair fishing lake. The lake has good marinas and excellent campgrounds operated. Entry fees are charged at all access points except Britton Park, where free launching is permitted.

    NOTABLE: Cedar Hill State Park is the state's most popular day-use park. The park is a popular camping destination for nature lovers but also an inexpensive headquarters for vacationers going to Rangers games, Six Flags and other attractions.

    DIRECTIONS: To Cedar Hill State Park, take Highway 67 south to Cedar Hill and FM 1382 west to the lake; or take I-20 to FM 1382 and FM 1382 south to the park. To other parks, take I-20 to Great Southwest Parkway and go south on Great Southwest Parkway.

    Little Mexico

    Is an area not far off the train route at Fitzugh, east of Central Expressway extending down to Ross (which incidentally is a great short cut to down town). If you enjoy Mexican food, culture, music, people it's a great place to spend an afternoon and explore. My personal favorite is Taqueria Lupita, where you can get Lengua tacos that will melt in your mouth. If that's a little too exotic for you I recomend the carnitas (basically mexican pulled pork, chopped). All should be served with rice, beans, onions, celantro and lime.

    And, I don't care what anyone says about the gourmet markets, I think the seafood and produce markets at the Fiesta on Ross are the best in town. Infact, I'm pretty sure that I remember it being voted "best place to buy a ripe mango" in one year's Dallas Observer "best of Dallas" polls

    They forget to check out the surrounding areas like Plano, TX, where the Steve Miller Band is from. Mesquite is another nice area, out in the country. There are a lot of bands that play in the summer months. (Used to call them 'Texas cowpatty Parties'.
