Anyone living in/around the Dallas area...

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies! So right before we left for our wedding we found out that we were being relocated to Dallas for my job...its actually a promotion, which is awesome, but I have never been to Dallas! I actually move at the end of the week and we're going to try to find a fun place to live. I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or ideas of good places to live (or places to avoid) in the DFW area. I'll be working at the Grand Hyatt DFW Airport property if that helps. Also, what are the best places to go for nightlife, dining, etc. I know Dallas is huge...DH and I have never lived in a city so large so we are super nervous! And, of course, if anyone wants to hang out I'm more than game - no friends or family in Dallas unfortunately. Thanks ladies!! smile03.gif

There are a lot of nice apts in Lewisville. I had an ex bf that lived there. It is really close to the airport as well.

I have heard Grapevine is really awesome too! We are looking at places this weekend and hopefully it will go well. So far I've heard that the good places to look are Grapevine, Addison, Uptown, and Las Colinas (in Irving). Haha, all of that means nothing to me now since I've never seen these places but hopefully I'll find my way around!

Grapevine, Las Colinas, Valley Ranch will be good places to check out. It depends on how close you want to be to work. Uptown Dallas and Addison are pretty cool areas if you are into the urban lifestyle. Traffic pattern will be an important consideration too.

Hi Jessica&Adam!

 

I just moved to Dallas from Chicago (before that, I was in Toronto) in April! It was also job-related and I knew NO one. It was a big culture shock to me but, seeing that you are coming from San Antonio, the transition may be a bit easier for you...(meaning, I haven't owned a car in over 15 years!)

 

I did an extensive research as to where to live. I chose Uptown. It's young, fun, safe, and only neighborhood I found people WALK around! It is busy in main streets, but also very neighborhood-like and friendly.

 

Good luck with the move! and Congrats on your promotion!

Hey and Welcome to Dallas!!

Ive lived all over the nation and have to say Dallas is by far my favorite.

I can give you all kinds of pointers on where to look and where not to look. Ive lived here for several years and know all about the suburbs too. Ill pm you my email address and some info for ya to get ya started and if you have any questions just let me know. I know its super overwhelming looking for a new place. My family is military so I'd like to think Im a bit of an expert in the subject of picking up and moving. Oh and nightlife...Girl, you have no idea! I can even tell you the specials for specific days!! haha

Hi and welcome to the Big D! It is an awesome place :) If you need to be over by DFW Grapevine is probably your best bet..but if you're willing to commute a little bit there are tons of options~what kind of area are you looking for?

Hi Ladies! 

 

Just did a search for the DFW area and found this! We just moved to the Dallas area July 10th (hubby is also military) and are hopefully closing on a home in Rockwall later this month. It's great to hear such good things about Dallas. Since we're just coming from a year in Korea, I'm just SO happy to be back in the states. :)

 

I'd love to hear more, chat about wedding stuff, Dallas, meet new friends so let me know if you'd be up for getting together sometime or chatting online! Here's my facebook:
