Why is Everyone Moving to Texas?
Millions of people are making the move to Texas. And there are plenty of reasons why. From the affordability and the jobs to the wide open spaces and nearby weekend getaways. There’s an endless supply of things to do, food to eat, and places to be. Texas also has one of the strongest job markets in the nation. Throw in the great AV industry job opportunities and what more could you ask for? While Texas is home to some great cities, there is one city that bundles all the best features of the Lonestar state together. That city is Dallas. Dallas is home to great sports teams, safe and affordable neighborhoods, and a wide range of laid back activities. It’s also a fantastic place to be if you’re in the audio visual sector. AV industry, here’s what a day in Dallas looks like.
What is there to Do in Dallas?
Dallas is a big city. Big enough to find good jobs and a place to call home. Small enough to know your neighbors like family. Get to know your neighbors well enough, and they’ll even smoke a brisket for you. It’s full of heart and full of history. Don’t let the city confuse you though. Just 45 miles northwest of Dallas is a hunting experience like no other. Nine Bar Ranch is home to exceptional deer, dove, and whitetail hunting. The ranch provides everything you need, from professional guide services, to comfortable lodging and meals. No experience comes close to a crisp morning hunt on 12,000 acres of beautiful Texas scenery. Ready for more Texas fun? Nothing screams “Texas” more than a stockyard. Fort Worth Stockyards is a national historic district located in the greater Dallas area. Going to the stockyards is like stepping into another time altogether. The shops, cowboys, and entertainment transport you directly to the days of the wild west. Walk along the brick walkways while watching a cattle drive led by cowboys on horseback or officially become a Texan and buy yourself a pair of cowboy boots. With so much to see and do, the stockyards are perfect for a date or family outing.
Ready to eat? Then you’re in the right place. You can’t live in Texas without eating barbeque and luckily, Hutchins BBQ, showcases what Texas barbeque is all about. Need more things to do? You’re in luck. Dallas is home to several professional sports teams. You won’t have trouble watching football, baseball, basketball and hockey thanks to the Cowboys, Rangers, Mavericks, and the Stars. The activities will bring you to Dallas, but the cost of living could convince even the most reluctant person to make the move.
What is the Cost of Living Like in Dallas?
Neighborhoods like Preston Hollow, Oak Lawn, and Bishop Arts District are prime places to live thanks to their strong median home and rent prices. Looking for more space at a lower cost? There are plenty of safe and affordable suburban areas right outside the Dallas area. Coppel, University Park, and Flower Mound are just a few of the low cost and friendly suburbs located outside the city limits. Dallas is far more affordable to live in when compared to cities like Los Angeles and New York. In addition to great cost friendly places to call home, the city of Dallas also has no state or local personal income tax. This can lead to big savings. What about healthcare? While the healthcare costs are a bit steep, the quality of healthcare one can attain in Dallas is superb thanks to the many world renowned hospitals and doctors that occupy the area.
