Moving from Baton Rouge, LA, to Dallas, TX

Are You Moving from Baton Rouge, LA, to Dallas, TX?

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and Dallas is no exception. The ninth most populous city in the United States and third most populous city in Texas, Dallas certainly lives up to its slogan of “Live large, Think big.” Dallas offers many of the things you love about Baton Rouge, but on a grander scale. The operative word in Dallas is “more” – more than 400 public parks, more restaurants per capita than New York City, the largest urban arts district in the country, five major league sports teams, more shopping centers per capita than any other major U.S. city, more than 176 museums and galleries, and more than 50 professional and community theaters. When you move to Dallas, get ready to think big and live large. You’re going to love it – 6.5 million people can’t be wrong!

What can Dallas offer that Baton Rouge can't?

There are a multitude of reasons why Dallas is the perfect place for you and your family. The city is teeming with things to do and offers opportunities you and your family won’t find in Baton Rouge, or anywhere else, for that matter. The information below will help you realize why moving to Dallas could be the best move you’ve ever made.

  • Climate – Like Baton Rouge, Dallas has a humid subtropical climate, with hot summers and mild winters. Winters in Dallas are generally mild, with normal daytime highs ranging from 55° F to 70° F and normal nighttime lows between 30° F and 45° F. You may see an occasional snowflake in Dallas, but even so, you can keep that winter coat in the back of your closet most of the time. Spring and autumn are pleasant, with vibrant wildflowers. Summers, quite frankly, are hot with highs near 100 degree, but with so many lakes and swimming pools, cooling off will be no problem.
  • Population – As the largest economic center of the Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area with a population of about 6.5 million, ethnic diversity is a highlight of life in Dallas. You may hear five different languages just sitting in a restaurant. Such cultural diversity guarantees you will meet many interesting people and broaden your social horizons. The population is spread out among suburbs outside the city and among the numerous distinctive neighborhoods within the city, all of which are great places to live and work.
  •  Education – Like Baton Rouge, public and private schools abound in Dallas, but Dallas offers more. There are 337 public schools, 89 private schools, 38 colleges, and 32 libraries in Dallas. The Dallas Independent School District (DISD) enrolls more than 161,000 students and boasts some of the best schools in the country. The School for the Talented and Gifted has been named the best public school in the United States three times. Other top schools include the Science and Engineering Magnet, ranked second in the nation in 2007. A seemingly endless number of colleges and universities are available in the area and include the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, the University of North Texas at Dallas, and the Dallas County Community College District. When it comes to educating your children, or perhaps continuing your own education, few cities offer not only the abundance but also the quality of schools of Dallas.
  • Entertainment – Baton Rouge may be know for Cajun and Creole cuisine, but Dallas is known for its barbecue and authentic Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. In fact, we have Dallas to thank for the frozen margarita! Eating isn’t all there is to do in Dallas, but you’ll need to eat hearty to keep up with all there is to do in Dallas. In addition to offering the best shopping in the southwest, the largest urban arts district in the nation, and 13 entertainment districts, Dallas is home to teams in the four major professional sports: the Dallas Cowboys, (football), Dallas Mavericks (basketball), Texas Rangers (baseball), and Dallas Stars (hockey). If that weren’t enough, you and your family won’t want to miss the State Fair of Texas, one of the most notable events in Dallas. Other potential excursions include the Dallas Zoo, Fair Park, Dallas World Aquarium and Dallas Farmers Market. The city has numerous parks and lakes where you can kick back and enjoy the outdoors, or go for a bike ride or jog.
  • Work – Like Baton Rouge, Dallas is an economic hub with a vibrant, diverse economy. The difference is size – the Dallas area economy is the sixth largest in the United States, with a gross metropolitan product of $374 billion. Considering these figures, it should come as no surprise that Dallas is home to the third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the nation, including Exxon Mobile, Kimberly-Clark, Fluor (engineering), and Commercial Metals. The city's economy is primarily based on banking, commerce, telecommunications, computer technology, energy, healthcare and medical research, transportation and logistics. The city is sometimes referred to as the heart of "Silicon Prairie" because of the concentration of telecommunications companies in the region. The Corridor is home to more than 5,700 companies, including Texas Instruments, Nortel Networks, AT&T, Nokia, Cisco Systems, Sprint, and Verizon Communications. With potential employers in so many different sectors, Dallas may be the place where you can think big and see your career to really take off.

Welcome to Fabulous Dallas!

Whether you’re moving from Baton Rouge to Dallas to pursue a new career opportunity, take advantage of the excellent schools, or because you’re ready to “live larger,” you won’t be disappointed.
