In about a year I'd like to move closer to central Dallas. Does anyone have suggestions for a new nurse to live? I'm looking for an area similar to the Museum/Montrose district or Spring/Woodlands Houston area within Dallas. My ideal rent is $700-$1,000 with at least 700 square feet. No desire to live in a place where bums live right around the corner.

Suggestions will be appreciated! TY!

Search dallas / fort worth apts/housing for rent classifieds - craigslist for Knox-Henderson, East Dallas, Lower Greenville, M Streets and Lakewood. Oak Lawn is more like "Montrose" in the sense that there are many gays, but I am under the impression that right now it's either very high end or low end and about to be redeveloped. There are a lot of interesting duplexes and very small apartment complexes (say from the 1930s) around Old East Dallas and Knox-Henderson areas named above. You might be able to find a house but the property taxes in those areas make it tougher. You might also try Power Properties - apartment dallas rental uptown, apartment locator dallas, downtown dallas apartment some of their properties are in a bit edgier areas, but not all. But then their tenants are usually quite cohesive.

Plano has a nice suburb feel, yet it's so close to everything and a nice neighborhood to live in. It's not that far from downtown. You head any far north than this, you are looking at a 40min to 1hr commute.

But it depends where you will be working too?

Hope this helps.
