I am a young professional (early 30's) who will be relocating to Dallas from out of state. One area I am considering is Uptown.


Any information you can provide regarding the demographics of the population that live in Uptown would be greatly appreciated.


Also, are most of the young professionals who live in Uptown originally from the Dallas area, or have most relocated there from somewhere else?


Thanks!

Uptown Dallas - Home

Mostly, white young professionals under the age of 30. Dallas is a transient city, so a mix of locals and & transplants. Also, look into the Addison neighborhood.
