The Heights Reviews

All Categories
rating depends on how you look at it. If you like hot summers and cool winters Dallas is great for you! Although beware Texas weather can get pretty crazy. It can be sunny one minute and raining the next. Although located smack dab in the middle of tornado alley, Dallas hasn't seen a tornado in years although tornado watches are not uncommon. Cool clothing is essential for the Texas heat because usually temps reach three digits in July.

The Dallas Metroplex offers a great variety of restaurants and bars. With the new developments in Trinity Groves, there are new places to eat, and live less than five minutes away from downtown Dallas.
More lights would be better. As well as more officers available during the night patrolling the area.
