Thinking about moving to Dallas?

Dallas is well-known for its shopping, sports, big hair, suburbs, and chef-inspired restaurants. As any Dallasite will tell you, there is always something new to see or do (like visiting wonderful museums or participating in fabulous outdoor activities). There's an overwhelming sense of pride in Texas that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. But if you’re moving to Dallas, where do you start? This handy guide will help you become a Dallas expert in no time.

Moving to Dallas provides you with endless fun!

Moving to Dallas: where to live

Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the largest metropolitan cities in North America, and for good reason. People typically move to Dallas for the abundant job opportunities coupled with a thriving economy. Housing prices are some of the best in the nation, and apartments are consistently built in the flourishing Uptown and Knox-Henderson area. If you're looking for nightlife, those places are prime for restaurants, bars, entertainment and activities.

A good area for families seeking great schools is northern Dallas, along with nearby suburbs such as McKinney, Frisco, Plano, Richardson, and Farmer's Branch. Affluent neighborhoods such as Highland Park and Preston Hollow boast beautiful trees and local cuisine. If you're looking to be close to “America's Team” (the Dallas Cowboys), consider that Arlington is just a short drive from Dallas. Or you can even take the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit system) to commute around the area.

Dallas food and drink

The authentic Tex-Mex that Dallas is known for might make you question if you should eat any other foods again! But if you want to explore, it’s good to know that Dallas is actually a hub for artisan chefs, so you're sure to find cuisine for any palate. Mi Cocina, Mariano's (inventor of the frozen margarita), Gloria's and The Rusty Taco are great places for authentic Mexican. For inexpensive outdoor eats, try Aw Shucks or Keller's Drive-In. If you're looking for great American food with a menu that changes often, try Hattie's in Oak Lawn, Nick and Sam's in Uptown or The Common Table (Andre 3000 of Outkast frequents here!).

Dallas locals love fried chicken, and Babe's has the best. For the perfect burger, make a stop at Liberty Burger or Hop Doddy's. If you want to try something different from the traditional American fare, try Royal Thai for authentic Thai and Lavendou for French cuisine.

Things to do in Dallas

Dallas has a variety of activities sure to please any and every passion. For those who love music and theatre, you’ll enjoy the multiple music halls, concert venues and theater scattered throughout the city. For those who love the outdoors, there are several parks to accommodate almost any outdoor activity. White Rock Lake offers a gorgeous view of downtown, plus a nine-mile loop around the lake. Take a bike ride or just get out and stretch your legs! It also offers a newly renovated dog park and plenty of benches to watch the sun set behind the Dallas skyline. Fair Park is the home of the State Fair of Texas, but the fun doesn't stop when the fair leaves. Stroll the beautiful gardens, catch a football game at the Cotton Bowl, or check out a play during the fabulous Dallas Summer Musicals. Take a stroll through Klyde Warren Park and stop at the food trucks for lunch or dinner. You can even catch a free yoga class there on the weekend.

Love museums? The Perot National History Museum in the Dallas Arts District has a distinct construction that compels you to wander throughout. Or, step through time at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to learn about the events leading up to the JFK assassination, as well as information after. It’s a very moving and unique experience.

The Dallas Arboretum is a perfect spot to quench the hot Texas heat with concerts, activities, and of course, botanical gardens. You’ll find the prettiest flowers in Texas and activities for every season. The arboretum features over 50,000 pumpkins in October and a beautiful display of tulips in springtime. 

Best Dallas shopping spots

Dallas has some of the best shopping in the country. It's no surprise there are multiple boutiques, malls and hidden gems. If Dallas is a shopping mecca, then NorthPark is its cathedral. It's also a one-stop shop if you're short on time! From high-end stores like Valentino, to stores like H&M and Forever 21, you’ll easily find something you love. Galleria Mall in north Dallas features many high-end and budget-friendly shops, along with an indoor skating rink. 

Dallas sports and entertainment

Along with the Cowboys, Dallas is home to several sports teams. Right next door to AT&T Stadium (home of the Cowboys) is the Texas Rangers, Dallas’ MLB team. Globe Life Park in Arlington is a beautiful, red brick, open-air ballpark where you can grab a dollar hot dog on Wednesday nights during the regular season. You can also tour "Jerry World" (AT&T Stadium) even when the Cowboys aren't playing and see the largest Jumbotron in the world! 

The Dallas Mavericks NBA team plays at the American Airlines Center, in the heart of Downtown Dallas. The Dallas Stars, an NHL team, also play in the same indoor stadium.  If soccer is your favorite sport, check out the Dallas Sidekicks, who play indoor soccer in Allen, a suburb near Dallas. If you're moving to Dallas to get a little culture, check out The Dallas Museum of Art. It offers free general admission as well as special exhibitions that change regularly. The Nasher Sculpture Center has some of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculpture in the world! In the nearby Dallas Arts District, you'll find the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas Opera at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Southern Methodist University is a beautiful campus and also holds the George W. Bush Presidential Library, full of interesting information about the 43rd president and his time in office.
