Addison has worked hard on its beautification plans lately and the evidence is clear to see. Addison Circle Park is in between the Addison airport and the loud Belt Line Rd but it's hard to notice in this subtle, yet beautiful area. This charming park has everything needed for a fun afternoon. Bring a Frisbee, ice chest, or a picnic. Let the kids or pets run through the fountains in the summertime. Athletes will the scenery while running or walking. Across the street are charming shops and dainty restaurants. If planning a family reunion or wedding reception the facilities can also be rented.

Commuting is a fact of life for tens of million of Americans. In suburban Dallas, there is the Interurban Electric Railway that commemorates some of the significant developments in urban transportation. Between 1908 and 1948 the Texas Electric Railway ran from Dallas to Denison, among many other routes throughout Texas. The primary stop between these locations was in Plano, which is now the site for the Interurban Railway Museum. Plano decided to renovate the station into a museum to recognize the importance of the station as a sign of technological progression. The electric railway car was an important advancement of the traditional steam engine. The museum features pictures, displays and artifacts from the Texas Electric Railway. You can even tour one of the train cars. A must visit for those interested in railway history.
