What To Expect When Moving From Phoenix To Dallas

If you’re a Phoenician relocating to Dallas, chances are you’ll quickly find a comfort zone. The two cities share many traits that make them attractive to new residents. Both are sprawling metro areas with plenty of sunshine (and heat), diverse cultures and employment bases, and lots to do. Learn more about what’s available in Big D and how to move worry-free from Phoenix with U-Pack®!

It’s a Wet Heat

Unlike the desert climate found in Phoenix, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex can feel like a sauna during the summer. The good news is that North Texas is relatively mild the rest of the year.

Help Wanted

If you’re moving to Dallas seeking professional opportunities, you’re in the right place. Many large corporations have set up shop in Dallas, bolstering the economy and creating thousands of jobs. The top industries include technology, financial services, defense, and oil and gas.

Getting Around

Dallas-Fort Worth is larger (nearly 7 million) and more densely populated than the Phoenix metro (4.7 million). Traffic can be challenging in the DFW metroplex, especially during rush hours; most residents commute 20 minutes to an hour daily. Dallas Area Rapid Transit is a handy alternative, especially going downtown, but coverage is limited.

Cost of Living

DFW has one of the hottest housing markets in the country, thanks to its economic growth. Home prices have risen over the past years, but it’s still slightly cheaper to live in Dallas ($210,000 average home price) than in Phoenix ($235,000). The average rent for each city is just under $1,000.

Entertainment

You name it, you can find it in Dallas. Much like Phoenix, Big D is a big sports town. It’s home to the NFL’s Cowboys, the NBA’s Mavericks and the NHL’s Stars. (MLB’s Rangers play in neighboring Arlington). AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Cowboys, is an architectural marvel. Experience live music in bars and theaters across the metroplex. Want an authentic Texan experience? Hop over to Fort Worth (also known as Cowtown) for the annual Fort Worth Stock Show, rodeos at the Stockyards and two-stepping at Billy Bob’s Texas, the world’s largest honky tonk.
