If you’re looking for a new place to live that has plenty to do and lots of jobs to help you pay for it, then North Dallas in Texas is someplace that you might want to consider relocating to. This is true whether you’re already in the Lone Star State or looking for new horizons from one of the other states of the Union.

The entire economy of Texas is booming. That’s driven partly by the successful companies that started here, along with copious oil wealth, but many other businesses have decided to relocate their headquarters here, particularly around Dallas and its suburbs. The location is relatively central between the coasts, making it convenient for travel and communications across the country, but also far enough south to be sunny, warm, and comfortable for those that live and work here.

People moving in also help drive the economic abundance, creating more supply and demand, thus more jobs. Residents come in from other states, and even from around the world. Texas is a border state and a common destination for those leaving Latin America and the Caribbean for a new life in the United States.

North Dallas tends to be very urban, so in your move here, be open to high-density housing such as apartments, condos, and townhomes. Mass transit and travel connections make it easy to get to other parts of the city if you want to catch a Dallas Mavericks or Cowboys home game, but you will also find plenty of shopping, dining out, entertainment, and other amenities in the immediate vicinity.

In fact, it’s very possible to get around the area and enjoy a full life of work, prosperity, social connections, and relaxation without having your own car, which is alluring to both young professionals and older citizens looking to downsize.
