Moving from Salt Lake City, UT to Dallas, TX

What To Expect When Moving From Salt Lake City To Dallas

Congratulations on your upcoming move! It’s not easy leaving beautiful Salt Lake City behind, but you can always go back and visit. In the meantime, find out why Dallas is the fastest-growing city in the U.S. — there’s something for everyone! Learn more about how Big D compares SLC and discover the easiest way to make the 1,200-mile trek.

Cost Of Living

Overall, Dallas (1.4 million population) is about 18 percent less expensive than Salt Lake City (200,000). The biggest factor is the median home cost. Average home prices are cheaper in Dallas-Fort Worth ($210,000) than SLC ($280,800).

Another draw for Dallas is that Texas has no state income tax. But other taxes (to fund state and local projects, property tax and sales tax) are often higher in Texas, so budget accordingly.

Dallas is a Major Travel Hub

Dallas is home to two major airports – Dallas/Fort Worth International (American Airlines’ hub) and Love Field (Southwest’s hub). At 27 square miles, DFW is larger than the island of Manhattan and the second largest U.S. airport by land area after Denver International. It’s also the fourth busiest airport in the U.S. Passengers traveling out of DFW can access every major in the continental U.S. within four hours.

Leave Your Winter Gear Behind

While SLC can get up to 60 inches of snow per year, Dallas’ mild climate (and hot, humid summers) allows residents to enjoy the outdoors year-round.

Take Time To Explore

Even without snow-related activities, there are many other great ways to enjoy leisure time in Dallas. Sports are a huge part of life here. Miss watching the NBA’s Jazz? Go check out the Mavericks. Cheer on America’s Team, the Cowboys, at stunning AT&T Stadium. Craving some culture? Visit any of the city’s many art and science museums. Want some fresh air? Stroll around 66 acres of vibrant green space at Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.
