Review Dallas
The most beautiful aspects of the city of Dallas, are the bright lights that reflect from the buildings at night in Downtown. There are so many places to take quiet walks, socialize with friends and family and conduct your own activity with the local community to pass the time. The many populated stores and restaurants all acquire the variety to showcase their skill of good food and hospitality to the many general public.
Speaking of people, whom are one of the most friendliest group of a city, that I've ever come across. The music and festivities bring everyone together, which defines what a great city Dallas is. I've enjoyed my time living here and recommend anyone of any status to drop by and experience the great food, people, and the beauty of what Dallas has became!
Dallas is a wonderful city with a vibrant nightlife and active growth. The Texas economy is growing, which has provided support for the growing population and there is new housing, shopping and restaurant developing going on. The city is very pocketed; there are low key areas to visit and upscale dining and nightlife as well. In terms of housing, it remains more affordable than most o the nation, though prices have gone up quite a bit over the past year. Family-wise, there are good sized houses with ample space located outside of the city "center", you'll just have to plan on a 20-30 minute commute into town. The city has undergone many renovations and the parks are developing! This biggest gap in my opinion are the outdoor activities and parks, which are coming along really nicely.
