Overview of Dallas
Dallas is a city with a long history and vibrant future. Originally founded in the mid-1800s, Dallas is now the third largest city in Texas and a major city in the U.S. Known for its oil industry, Dallas today has a broader economy. The city boasts Fortune 500 companies in industries like banking, commerce, computers, healthcare and more. With nearby Fort Worth, the Dallas metro area offers a wide range of cultural, civic, recreational and educational diversions, all set in a welcoming climate. If you are already living in the city or thinking of moving here, apartments in Dallas are available for all kinds of needs, in addition to houses for rent.
Living in Dallas, TX
John Neely Bryan originally planned to open a trading post near the Trinity River, but wound up founding a community when he arrived in 1841. The area grew quickly, with more than 2,000 residents by 1860. They would be awestruck by Dallas today with its far-flung neighborhoods, skyscrapers, businesses and more than 1.1 million residents, many living in Dallas apartments.
In addition to the economic/business center, Downtown Dallas is home to functional and historic "districts." These include the City Center, Government and Convention Center districts, as well as the Farmers Market, Main Street and Reunion districts. The popular West End Historic District features shops and restaurants in converted warehouses. From downtown, the city circles outward, like a wagon wheel, to include about 160 neighborhoods. Each has its own personality and offerings, as well as a variety of Dallas apartments and rentals for the Dallas-area renter.
Dallas Work & Study
Dallas is home to many colleges and universities, some very well known. Among the more famous are Southern Methodist University, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and the Art Institute of Dallas.
Dallas offers a diversity of work opportunities. Nearly 6,000 companies occupy the "Telecom Corridor" in Richardson, a Dallas suburb. In fact the number of high-tech companies has earned Dallas the nickname "Silicon Prairie." There are plenty of retail jobs because of the city's status as having more shopping centers per capita that any other U.S. city. Its convention center attracts business travelers from across the country, contributing to a healthy tourism industry.
Dallas Cost of Living
Dallas has a cost of living below the average of most U.S. cities. The cost of living is the average cost of life's basic necessities: food, shelter and clothing. For comparison, the U.S. average cost of living is 100. The cost of living in Dallas is below average at 96.2, compared to Los Angeles at 132.8. If you're looking to rent an apartment or home, this is good news. For a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment, you can expect to pay between $700 and $1,200 a month, depending on the neighborhood.
Dallas Attractions & Entertainment
Let your senses feast on all that Dallas offers. You can start with the state's trademark Tex-Mex food, along with barbeque and Mexican cuisine. It's no surprise that this cattle state is a prime spot for steak dinners. But, don't stop there. Dallas is home to world class museums, as well as theater, opera and the symphony. And, don't forget the exciting nightlife.
Family friendly spots include the Dallas Zoo, World Aquarium, Museum of Natural History and the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. The city is dotted with parks and lakes offering any outdoor enthusiast plenty of space to enjoy the temperate climate of north Texas.
No discussion of Dallas is complete with a nod to its sports teams. These include "America's Team," the Dallas Cowboys. There is also the Texas Rangers in baseball, the Mavericks in basketball, the Stars in hockey, as well as teams in soccer and rugby.
Dallas Special Events
As a vibrant, diverse city, Dallas hosts events and festivals year round, including the State Fair of Texas, Pioneer Harvest, and Viva Dallas. The annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is the nation's oldest stock show that draws thousands.
