Advice on Dallas Neighborhoods - where to live

Jump to last reply

My husband's job has been moved to Dallas. We currently live in the NorthEast so are use to a different "look and feel" than dallas - of course, at a higher cost! So far, my two trips to Dallas to look around seem to result in seeing cookie cutter houses in massive developments surrounded by chain restaurants and strip malls. NOTHING wrong with that, just not what we're use to and not sure this is what we want. Really struggling to find somewhere like where we live now, which we really enjoy.

Cost aside, can anyone recommend any neighborhood/town or area in the metroplex in which:
1. you can get a nice house with at least a little land...and trees! (we don't need brand new with all the best amenities). perhaps some scenery to the area??
2. houses aren't all "cookie cutter"
3. Great schools / Great daycares, etc
4. walking distance (or short drive) to a "town" area/center - ie. stores, restaurants, etc - and that aren't necessarily chain restaurants (essentially, would love to be able to walk to a cute neighborhood bar or some charming mom and pop restaurants...that serve good food of course!)
5. sense of community, community events, and access to community facilities (community pool and/or rec center, lake, etc)
6. pet friendly (ie. dog park perhaps)
7. Safe, safe, safe!

Thank you!
