What I like about Dallas and the surrounding Burbs is that you can actually work in the community in which you live. Coming from the DC area, if you worked in DC/Arlington/Fairfax, rarely could you afford to live there so you lived an hour or more out, and in those little bedroom communities, you had houses and small retail, but there were not a lot of larger companies which employed a large part of the community. We worked in Loudoun County/Fairfax County (Lessburg/Ashburn/Reston areas) and had to buy a house out in WV because you couldnt get a townhouse for under 500k. That was an 1 hr 15 mins at least, each way. You dont have to do that here, not all the jobs are downtown Dallas.

Here, if you work at the Plano Toyota offices, you can actually live in Plano or just outside of it and still not have a nightmare commute. Same with Arlington, Irving, Ft. Worth, etc.

Less and less for Plano. Fortunately the Legacy Business area of Plano borders Frisco. Unfortunately, Frisco is getting expensive as well.
