Thanks.OkieTexan said:Welcome to Dallas! Dallas IS one of the great American cities despite what others say and I hope you love it. I miss my hometown of Dallas alot but Oklahoma country living is so much quieter. LOL...! My family still lives there and my aunt who lives close to the Miami Dolphins headquarters her and her husband are thinking of moving to Dallas so it must be in the air in Florida??? Hmmm?
Uh most of its grass lol and during the fall and winter months the grass is brown and the river is low and only like 8 feet wide.mameenoodles said:oh my god how brown is your river? ugh.
Thanks for the info. Did you live in southeast Florida?I-275westcoastfl said:.......Anyway lauderdalegator i am a floridian that moved to Dallas dont move too far out into the suburbs and it really depends where you end up if you will like it or not. ......
I can say though that the closer to downtown you went the better the character of the neighborhoods became better the people were somewhat friendlier and you could actually go somewhere without a car........ most people i knew from florida moved to dallas because it was cheaper and they got more pay but most would say they liked florida better and i was one of them thats why i moved back.......Overall if you grew up in florida Houston is a better bet that city is more like it is over here.
(P.S. Be careful with the real estate agents over there they tried scamming us and the buyer of our house out of money because houses are so cheap there.)
No before moving to dallas i was raised in St.Petersburg which is basically a mix of a florida city and a southern city now i live in a city above it Clearwater. Ive been to southeast florida though somewhere above Ft.Lauderdale and below West Palm Beach its not that much different.lauderdalegator said:Thanks for the info. Did you live in southeast Florida?
Anyway, in Dallas I hope to live intown and not out in a strange suburb. Schools are really bad here in Florida but I grew up mostly in Ohio and Maryland. I am finishing an undergrad program now so school is over for me. As for the rude people, yes I know they're everywhere and most of the ones here in Florida are probably ex-New Yorkers I will miss Florida.
Oh yeah, can you elaborate on how the realtors tried to scam you? That happens everywhere. I know realtors here will tell you they have a buyer for your house just to trap you into a contract. Loan officers will try to convince to sign on outrageous mortgages. They have so many tricks. All they care about is their commission.
I think I'll like Dallas. I've yet to live anywhere I didn't like and most places are pretty much the same anyway.
lol. I was wondring that as well. I never seen a little skyline in that area before.Nick in Atlanta said:Maybe I missed the info, but what is the name of the built up area in the foreground of the first photo? And what direction is the camera facing?
no.. uptown is in-between midtown and downtown...Nick in Atlanta said:Wouldn't it be Uptown then?
