Living in Dallas, TX

Whether you're new to town or a long-time resident, there's always something to discover in the Big D. Blues clubs, trendy hangouts, and a thriving arts & culture scene define the city's entertainment vibe. On the fashion front, you'll find an eclectic mix of cowboy chic, hippiee lux and the high end trendiness of the venerable Neiman Marcus.

Sometimes conservative but oftentimes liberal on the political front, the state's largest city trails only behind New York, Los Angeles and Chicago in sheer size.

The metro area of Dallas is extremely affordable and a great place for singles, families and career-minded individuals. Well-known neighborhoods include the trendy arts area of Oaklawn and the revitalized Uptown enclave, the family-friendly Lakewood section, and the million-dollar mansions of Preston Hollow.

Many internationally renown chefs have established restaurants here. True, Dallas is known for its barbecue. But the city is also home to a wide variety of regional and cultural cuisines, with more restaurants per capita than New York City.
