Hello Everyone,

I am excited to say that I may be moving from Plano to Ft. Worth for work. However, I am having trouble finding a "cool" eclectic place to live for a single 34 year old - young at heart male.

Questions:

1) I would be working on Marine Creek Parkway just off of 820 NW loop. I was raised in a town of 3,000 people and cannot tolerate commutes over 20 minutes. Does 820 get bad in the a.m.? I would be going to work around 8 or 9.

2) I am looking for a great place to live. In an ideal world it would be within walking distance to a couple taverns and restaurants. I am not a lush, but do like to enjoy a few drinks on the weekend and don't want to drive. Either a rental house or apartment would be great with a price around $900-$1400 dollars.

Any positive and helpful feedback will be appreciated.

There are apartments over in the Lake Worth area, but not sure how walking distance they are from some of the restaurants in the area are. There is a pretty extensive little shopping valley over in Lake Worth that pretty much has every big box shop you could want, short of a Frye's Electronics, but hey

We're also missing a sport goods store in our area (NW FW).

plano, there are some houses for rent in my neighborhood. I recommend driving around the developments and calling them up. As Guin said, there are also several apt. complexes in the area ... any of which will only take you about 10 min. to get to the TCC area (MCP and Loop 820).

Also, a more active area with lots of nice apartments (comparable to what you are used to in Plano) is by 35W and Western Center. Restaurants, movie theater, fitness center are close by.

OK, now for that amount of money in rent, you can get a pretty decent house too.

The traffic on 820 is horrible westboud from Holiday Lane to Beach Street in rush hour morning or evening. It really is bad. After that it's not bad at all.

Ditto for eastbound in rush hour. Just that window is bad.
