Sometimes it can be hard to break out of our comfort zones. Maybe you're more at home on an Oak Lawn patio than a Deep Ellum music venue. Perhaps you prefer a chill Lakewood vibe to a swanky Uptown club. That's OK. But, maybe you have a hankering to explore or revisit another side of the city. 

What better way to get acquainted with something new than a glimpse through the eyes of those in the middle of their very own urban adventure? That's what this new series, InstaDFW, is all about. 

Here are wonderful things you'll likely spot any given day on the Katy Trail.
