Dallas will always be my home. There is so much to do, whether you are downtown or in any of the suburbs such as Richardson, Plano, or Arlington. Downtown has an amazing nightlife, especially near Elm Street. The food is outstanding and in my neighborhood of Preston Hollow, I have always felt safe. There are night watch/police cars always patrolling the city which makes me feel a lot safer. The schools are pretty amazing, public and private. Although where I have been located hasn't been the most diverse, downtown is very diverse. I love the Perot museum and the Dallas Museum of Art. Klyde Warren Park is also very fun in the fall and spring, with all the affordable food trucks! Traffic can be hard to deal with though, I feel like there is always construction on 635 and LBJ.

I love living in Dallas! When my family and I go on road trips, we noticed while traveling through other cities that Dallas is one of the CLEANEST cities around! We have the BEST/ prettiest downtown skylines, our activities like the aquarium and zoo are awesome, and don't forget our Texas State Fair! The most beautiful thing about Dallas is that we help our homeless more then other cities do.
I moved here from a small town in Iowa. I came to visit a friend, and from there I fell in love. Back in Iowa there were no tall buildings and it was not diverse or multi-cultural. Coming to Dallas has given me a new outlook on what major opportunities there are. In Iowa, it is common to follow the "norm" and most individuals fall into the small town, secured lifestyle. Dallas has been the best experience so far!
