Either way, DFW is a much nicer airport and has many more flights to many more destinations. Even when Wright goes away, DFW will offer far superior options.
It's all domestic, but I generally like to fly United or at least Star Alliance. I could be convinced to go Southwest if it was really more convenient.

If your going to be living in Dallas, you should probably start using the OneWorld carriers. When I lived in LA I used United, but now that Im here it makes no sense to.

Im a million miler with United and Im almost there with American. The benefits of Milage Plus and AAdvantage are very similar. Delta has a crappy program, but you dont have to worry about them here.

Considering one of you will be commuting to Duncanville, North Oak Cliff might make some sense as well. It's an older neighborhood southwest of downtown, meaning it's slightly closer to Duncanville and the southwest part of the Metroplex than the Knox-Henderson area or Uptown. But it's also not that far from Love Field across the river and it's near I-30.

Right now, North Oak Cliff doesn't have a lot of new construction apartments and the only walkable area is the rather small Bishop Arts District but all of that is starting to change with new apartments like this:

Zang Triangle Apartments for Rent | Dallas TX Apartments on Apartmentfinder.com

And the Bishop Arts area is starting to grow a lot as new places start to sprout up and down Davis. Not to mention the area has more trees, rolling hills, and character than some of Dallas.

@CGGirl my wife and I both grew up in MoCo. Your comments about the dart are helpful. Do others agree? Are some of the lines better than others? What is parking like downtown? I dont like driving if I dont have to.
I like the idea of a walkable neighborhood (I'm moving from Arlington VA) and Knox henderson sounds nice.
Uptown and West Village would be more walkable than Knox Henderson. Knox Henderson doesn't have a drug store or a grocery store. Nearest would be in Uptown/West Village. Some say you can walk there from Knox Henderson but I am a native NY'er and walk pretty past and it's a LONG walk.

I was down McKinney Ave about two weeks ago and I lived in DC from the 90's to just a few years ago. The two are not similar at all. What do you see as similar?

Meh, I wouldn't consider Sunflower a full service grocery store and that's not really that close to what I consider Knox-Henderson. The Fiesta on Ross was nearer to where I lived in Uptown (but not close) but I don't see how it is anywhere near the Knox Henderson Area. When I think of Knox-Henderson, I think of the area around all of the mattress stores, the Apple Store, and Z-Gallerie and Cole Avenue. The Fiesta on Ross is sort of in the "hood" and not really near Knox or Uptown. It is on the corner of Ross and Greenville and I also wouldn't consider that a full service grocery store. I would consider it more like an ethnic grocery store or specialty grocery store.

A couple of blocks long, a bunch of bars, a few restaurants, crowds wander around at night...

Of course you can't dip into the Common Share (now closed) or TomTom or Heaven and Hell or grab a slice at Pizza Mart, but they are vaguely similar.

I had a view of the Capitol and Monument out of my window during my time there (and the drug dealing going on below).
