Wanted to see if anyone is living in the Dallas area. We will be relocating there this April/May. Sylvia's company is located in Coppell. Wanted to find out more about the area and which places are best to live in.

Hey Gang...I know we have quite a few folks who reside within the MetroPlex...

David, I lived in the area as a kid (Grand Prairie), again as an adult for a while (Allen/Plano), and traveled there frequently due to work over the last 10+ years (Irving/Las Colinas).

I will, of course, defer to those who live there today...but Coppell is near the airport...generally speaking, "North" Dallas suburbs have good reps for schools (Plano, Frisco, Allen, McKinney, etc.) while some of the 'burbs on the other side of the airport in Tarrant county might be considered more affordable (Southlake, Westlake, Grapevine)...but don't quote me.

C'mon Dallasites residents, time to chime in!

Southlake (just west of Coppell) was just named the richest small town in the US with an average income of around $175K.

Other than that tidbit, what Tony said is generally true. The farther north of Dallas you go, the better (more expensive) the neighborhoods and schools. This also applies somewhat to Fort Worth. Coppell is between the two, but closer to Dallas.

If you want land, you have to waaayyyy north, or waaayyy south.

One thing you will notice, I think, is how much cheaper housing is compared to FL, even now. Though we haven't had the foreclosure problems here that other places have, there are still sure to be some bargains to be had, and it is a buyer's market.

Of course you already know that Texas is the center of the High School Football universe, so you should enjoy that, Dave. Unfortunately there is very little lacrosse (mostly the Catholic schools) and wrestling. There is a High School Ice Hockey league, as well.

Weather wise, yes, we do have winter, today the high will barely get above freezing, but it will be in the 40's tomorrow and in the 70's Friday. We usually have at least one ice storm per winter. Summers are great, I think we only had 15 100 degree days last summer, which I think is normal, the rest were in the high 90's.

Looking forward to seeing Big D in Big D.

I live in Southern Dallas county in Cedar Hill... And Hicks is correct North Dallas is nice, better schools etc. South Lake, Keller, Coppell are nice areas. I live in Cedar Hill and work in the city also it is SOUTH Dallas for sure. The area is nice a state park, lake etc. but it is south dallas county.. Keep us posted where you end up and hopefully we can meet up some time
