It's almost startling how similar the Park Cities are to the old money neighborhoods in Buckhead like Tuxedo Park. Absolutely amazing.

Also if people insist on talking about shopping, let's not talk about malls and instead talk about streets like Knox in Dallas or Highland in Atlanta.

Yeah, shopping malls are highly overrated. I don't care for them or the people who frequent them. I'd like to know about thrift shops, other small shops, cafes(non-chains), etc.

I went to the Galleria Dallas on my way there I seen another mall (Valley View Center) across the street!They are still building new shopping centers for example the new shopping center Park Lane across the street from Northpark Center.There are so many shopping developments going on in Dallas! Please don't get it mixed up we have more shopping centers not malls per capita than any other city or metropolitan area in the United States.
I know Dallas and Fort Worth are often lumped together but the OP said Dallas or Atlanta not Dallas/Fort worth(Two seperate cities that happen to be very close) or Atlanta

Sorry to be the "evil one", but I would like to refer folks to the sticky from the top of the room which most folks ignore: What To Post In This Room (and - NOT). READ BEFORE POSTING ****. Please note the part about "photos" (number per post, size, etc). I've been turning my head until now, but honestly, once I start getting complaints about how many and how large photos bog down load times for folks, things have to be enforced. In order to avoid having pics in a post removed, please follow the guidelines in the sticky please. Thank you
I have to admit these pics are beautiful!

ugh, that's like asking "do you want to chew on broken glass or rusty nails"
I have spent years in both and never ever want to near either of those burgs again.
ugh.

Hey if there's one thing Atlanta is good at it's selling it's self. Check out these video's. I'm not crazy about the music on the first one. My favorite is the forth one it really shows Atlanta as dynamic and up and coming. Does Dallas have anything to compare with these?

As an Atlanta resident and speaking on behalf of Dallas, it doesn't have exactly the same mix, but it's pretty dynamic in its own right. It is really similar to Atlanta.

Dallas feels/is the bigger, larger and more urban between the two but Atlanta, because it is more compact is more vibrant.

LOL. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. Both "places" (notice the absence of the word "city") are overgrown suburbs bereft of vibrancy and culture.
