Hello all,


I am contemplating relocating to Dallas, Texas. My work location would be in Lewisville, but I want to live in the Uptown area. I am used to living in a city, I want to live somewhere that is somewhat walkable with people around my age.


How bad will the commute be? Anyone else on this forum make the commute back and forth. I am in my early 20s looking for a balance between work and social life.


Thanks in advance.

Is this the same OP as the other thread......? Sure sounds like her. At any rate, I don't recommend the commute at all.

Live as close to I-35 as possible. Design District would be a good place to rent and then you're kind of right between Uptown and North Oak Cliff, the two best areas to hang out. Budget for 30+ min AM / 45+ min PM commute times (highway only. You'll need to add the minutes it takes to get from your apartment to 35 to those times to get total commute).

I wouldn't wish a 35E commute on anyone. They are in the middle of a multi-year construction project. 35Express Project It will only get worse.

TurtleCreek80 gave you the best option, if you want to enjoy Uptown. Design District is not very walkable. It's very spread out.

It's more walkable than anything in Lewisville. You can easily walk to Victory Park, The Katy Trail (just featured in the New York Times), and it's within close driving distance to the best neighborhoods in Dallas. I know I couldn't stomach the idea of living in Lewisville, while the commute isn't great, it's worth it for a great place to live.
