Dallas At A Glance
Moving to Dallas? Prepare for Endless Delights in ‘Big D!’
Leave all of your western stereotypes and lazy cowboy misconceptions at the door, because the southern city that started as little more than a pair of cabins 150 years ago is all grown up. Dallas, Texas is home to one million friendly Texans, a number that continues to grow as 3,500 people relocate to Dallas on a weekly basis. All My Sons Moving and Storage, your Dallas movers, welcome you with an inside scoop on what to expect if you’re moving to Texas.
If you move to Dallas, you won’t be lonely with an additional 5 million residents in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. The fourth largest metropolitan area in the United States may evoke intimidating images of cramped quarters and limited elbow room, our Dallas movers will tell you not to be fooled by the booming population. Moving to Dallas means living in the least densely populated major metropolitan area world-wide. From the newly-developed and extremely affordable areas of Highland Village, Allen, and McKinney north of Dallas to the scenic, open lots over-looking beautiful Joe Pool Lake in Cedar Hill and everywhere else our Dallas movers can take you, there’s a Dallas neighborhood that will fit you like a glove. Ask any of those Dallas movers, and we’ll tell you all about our hometown with pride!
Dallasites are amazed to hear that many misinformed speculators still assume that most Texans wear cowboy hats and boots to work, spit tobacco, and of course cherish the companionship of their trusty horse on a quaint ranch. Though the occasional ranch, farm, rodeo and honky-tonk still thrives in the heart of Texas, most of those moving to Dallas will notice that the presence of 43 Fortune 500 Companies and a thriving job market serve to distract most residents with the pursuit of wealth, class, family, and a very large SUV. As one of our Dallas movers put it, “My SUV is my version of a Texas mustang.” Trade acres of land for condominiums with small patios and honky-tonks for nightclubs that rival some of New York’s hotspots, and you have the cosmopolitan side of life enjoyed by Dallas movers and shakers everywhere.
After you move to Texas with our Dallas movers, get moving around Dallas quickly to discover all that Big D has to offer other than the main attractions you can read about on any old Dallas guide. You’ll have to visit Ghostbar, if not just to see what your friends keep talking about. This black-lit neon bar sits on the 33rd floor of the new-to-Dallas W Hotel and comes complete with a glass floor, beautiful people, and celebrity sightings. Bring your wallet, though, because the waitresses don’t wear white go-go boots and tiny skirts for nothing. Once you’ve tried Ghostbar, try its downtown Dallas nemesis, Obar. Equally sophisticated with the bonuses of more personality, an intriguing clientele, and a vivid atmosphere perfected by its subterranean location, Obar exudes a hint of mischievousness in its intimate quarters.
After a day spent roaming the Fort Worth Zoo (you can try the Dallas Zoo, but Fort Worth’s reigns superior) or shopping at the Dallas Galleria, leave the kids at home and head to Perry’s Restaurant to sink your teeth into their gigantic prawns, lobster, or prime steaks. Perry’s boasts an intimate atmosphere, a well-planned wine list, and simply spectacular service from the well-trained wait staff and the attentive, personable owners. North of downtown Dallas, Addison’s newly-opened Ounce Prime Steakhouse serves some of the best cuts in the area along with unbeatable side dishes like lobster mashed potatoes, applewood-smoked bacon macaroni, and options to custom blend your own risotto. Addison, another area our Dallas movers serve, rivals hotspots like West Village, lower Greenville, and Uptown for its collection of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs.
