I am a recent college grad who will be relocating to Dallas in June for work. I will be working near the 75/LBJ intersection, and am looking for advice on where to start looking for apartments - Dallas is huge! Many people have already recommended the Village, but I'm looking for some alternatives. Something in a nice, safe area with a good vibe and not too expensive would be great. Any advice on looking and relocating in general would be much appreciated! Thanks!

The Village certainly is a good suggestion! The other areas for young professionals that are great are south of the Village, both east & west of 75. Check neighborhoods called Knox-Henderson, M Streets/ Mockingbird Station, Uptown, Downtown, Deep Ellum/ Exposition Park. All would be a 5-15 min drive in rush hour to 635 & LBJ - it's a reverse commute (against traffic) and very fast unless there's a wreck. Knox-Henderson, M Streets / Mockingbird Station, and Uptown are more trendy/preppy and Downtown and Deep Ellum/ Expo Park are more diverse / artsy/ boho/ hipster.

All are safe neighborhoods. YOu're still in the city so need to be aware of your surroundings and lock apartment/car doors at all times, but you're perfectly safe walking around the neighborhoods & living your life.

"Not too expensive" means different things to different people. You will be hard-pressed to find a 1BR in Uptown for under $1200 or so. If your budget is less than $800, you're going to have a difficult time in any of these neighborhoods.
