The best places to live in Dallas County are Irving and or NortWest Dallas; affordable for any working person.And it's location is near and between both DFW and LoveField Airports. Also Grapevine and GrandPrarie these cities haven't chosen public transportation but are suburbs to reside. Another good location is Richardson (northern Dallas county)because it has a good family atmosphere and good home prices for married or two income families. Addison (northern Dallas county) is another great location but it is mostly designed for entertainment and restaurants but has living for singles and has one of the best atmospheres for fun, eat, drink, entertainment. Carrollton(northern Dallas county) has good vibes also, affordable. Another city in Dallas County and may be the best afforbable is Garland (eastern Dallas county).The home market in Garland is afforbable for any working person but the city has its own power company and most residents can only use Garland Power the the up side is, you get more home for your buck.That,s the catch. Garland doesn't have many available freeways to access like Irving and the others I've blogged about but, only Georgebush toll road or Beltline Rd or NorthWest Hwy. But it's good. Other good locations are Cedarhill (southern Dallas county). But Cedar hill only has one 2 lane freeway going thru it with some back roads you can take to and from a resident of this city. It's also very affordable and you'll get more home for your dollar. CedarHill has great shopping centers for everyone but isn't accessible by public transportation. Oakcliff (southern section of the city of Dallas) is good to stay, depending on what part or section you may reside. One would have to dissect Oakcliff into neighborhoods to chose the best location for a home, very affordable but be picky about where in Oakcliff. Oakcliff runs a long way and cover most of the southern section, section of Dallas City from where Duncanville (southwest Dallas county) ends all the way to I-45 in (southeastern) Dallas City. This is pretty much a good detail of how Dallas county is built. Can include Plano as another great location but it it's in Dallas and Collin County. And it's a good location too.

East Richardson and North Garland are great places to live in. Esp. North Garland gives you more house for the buck and the electricity is cheaper than in other cities. Just so you know the Firewheel farms neighborhood is a gem in the Garland area - close to George Bush and the Firewheel Town Center, and the houses are custom built and right off of the Firewheel Golf course. Drive by that side and you will realize its hard to get such homes in frisco for that price point, and its very close to Statefarm and Raytheon.

Further, the advantage with North Garland is the ability to send kids to any school of your choice in Garland or Sachse or Rowlett. If elementary is your primary concern, Abbett Elementary is a great place tucked in the Firewheel neighborhood.

This thread is pretty weird....first post hurts my eyes but that's ok. 3 posts in over a year from someone posting with such a dramatic title and undocumented opinions. Followed by a 7 year old account with 1 post??!! Next comes a brand new account adding more unsolicited info.

Just want to talk about Carrollton for a second. I thought all the "good parts" of Carrollton were in Denton County while Dallas County parts of Carrollton was a bit on the poorer side and had worse schools. Can't talk about Collin County; I always hear a part of Carrollton is in Collin but I have never learned of that part.
