Dallas

Why you'd want to live in Dallas

Dallas is the second largest city in Texas and the center of the state's largest metropolitan area, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, is in the north central portion of the state. It is home to the Dallas Mavericks and you'll regularly be reminded of its mass enthusiasm for the team. A shopper's paradise, it has more shopping centers per capita than any other city in the US. via Wikitravel

Lifestyle


Uptown

Located immediately north of downtown Dallas and west of North Central Expressway, this fashionable neighborhood is teeming with young professionals and empty-nesters looking for an urban lifestyle. Uptown is one of Dallas's most walkable neighborhoods, with cafes, bars and boutiques only a few minutes away from most residential areas. The northern end of the neighborhood is home to West Village, a mixed-use complex that includes residential and retail space and some of the best people-watching in the city. via FrontDoor

Preston Hollow

Preston Hollow is one of Dallas's most elite neighborhoods. Large estates with majestic specimen live oak trees will inspire you, and because of a quirk in the area's early founding, many of the streets don't have sidewalks or curbs. Early homes were one- or two-story styles built in the 1930s, though there have been plenty of tear-down projects for new homes. via FrontDoor

M Streets

With its leafy, tree-lined streets and darling homes dating as far back as the 1920s, the M Streets continues to be a popular neighborhood for couples and young families who want to be close to downtown and near White Rock Lake. Homes here are generally between 1,000 and 1,400 square feet, although some tear-downs have created larger homes. Since 2002 the area has been known officially as the Greenland Hills Conservation District, a designation that will make such projects more difficult in the future. via FrontDoor

Lake Highlands

Lake Highlands is a popular neighborhood for families or young professional couples who want to have a Dallas address while living in the attractive Richardson school district, which includes this area. One thing that sets Lake Highlands apart from most Dallas neighborhoods is its topography of rolling hills -- a rarity in the generally flat North Texas prairie. Massive pecan and live oak trees create a gorgeous shade canopy in the Texas heat. via FrontDoor

Richardson

An older, first-ring suburb, Richardson charms with its diversity and affordability. Nestled between Dallas and the massive suburb of Plano, Richardson has enjoyed a healthy base of major employers that pull from around the country. It is home to the city's "Telecom Corridor," where well-known companies such as Nortel and Verizon Business maintain a major presence. via FrontDoor
