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!

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!

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

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:
