Dallas Apartments and Cost of Living
Even though you're living in a big city, apartments in Dallas tend to provide everything you need without emptying your wallet. Coming in slightly below the national average for cost of living, rent in Dallas ranges from pricey in the City Center to way affordable on the outskirts of town. If living close to nightlife in a highly-urbanized area is what you want, look to Downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods where you'll find more expensive rent and a much larger range of activities. If you're trying to save money and enjoy some more quiet space, suburbs like Far North Dallas or South Dallas sometimes have apartments for nearly half the price of the inner city.
Apartments in Dallas Work and Study
Dallas is a hub for high-tech companies and has earned the nickname of "Silicon Prairie" because of the high concentration businesses sitting just north of the city in the Telecom Corridor. For residents who are not as technologically savvy, Dallas also offers many service and retail jobs, as the city's shopping strips and convention centers bring in travelers from all over the world and promote a very healthy tourism industry.
Dallas is also a great place to earn a higher education degree. Thousands of students live in Dallas apartments while they attend classes at the Art Institute of Dallas, Southern Methodist University, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and other local colleges.
