Possibly Moving To Dallas

Might be moving to Dallas from Chicago. I've never been to Dallas. Any insight as to where to live? My wife will be working downtown. I'm 37 and my wife is 40. We don't have kids and don't plan on having any. Initial research suggests Highland Park and Lower Greenville might be a good fit. We're coming Sunday for a few days to take a look around. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Highland Park? Hope both of you make decent coin because HP is far from cheap. HP is not the place to be if you're DINK's honestly.

M-Streets and Uptown would be your best bet.

We'll see lol. We'll be renting for a bit to get a lay of the land and figure out which neighborhood we want to buy in.

We currently live in Chicago. Plano and Frisco might be too suburban for us. No kids and no plans for them.

Totally agree (although I find myself wanting to live away from the city and I'm 32, single, and no kids haha).

So this is happening. Putting the Chicago condo up for sale next week. Wife already started her job in Dallas. We're looking in the Knox-Henderson and NE Dallas area.

Knox henderson area off of 75 is a very nice area, lobe some of the older houses. Im about 20 miles from there, unlike yourself i have 4 kids! As for meet ups i have no idea, but i do have a few (many) tuning questions as i know no one else with a gti
All my tuning experience is with dual carbs, jets, and a 009 distributor (ac vw) i work by downtown and im alwaus out and about. Do you perform your work or take it to a shop?
Thanks Chris

They don't exist. Unfortunately the community has been fragmented into silly cliques for a good while now. Hopefully you attended the Cars and Coffee meet this morning instead.
