Best Dallas Suburb for 1 bedroom apartment near arlington?

Question by Donald B: Best Dallas Suburb for 1 bedroom apartment near arlington?
Im moving to Dallas soon for a job in Arlington, and I was hoping to get some information on what the better areas of Dallas are to find apartments. Unfortunately its just me and stilll a bit outside my price range to get a house. I know that the north side of dallas is suppose to be nicer, but I’ll be working in the Arlington area and dont necessarily want a long commute. Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Well.. Arlington is not my favorite part.. I just don’t care for Euless and those places. I would pick Grapevine or Southlake. Southlake is fairly well-to-do though so apartments would be rather expensive. Grapevine has the AMC theater and a huge huge outlet mall and also a fairly established downtown.

I wouldn’t go near Irving or Carrollton. There’s nothing great around there and rather crowded imo. Richardson has a lot of restaurants… I suppose that may be a plus.

Highland Park is really really really rich and University Park is near SMU college.

This area is awesome. It’s so walkable which is rare for Dallas.

Of course I can’t afford to live in these areas:)
If you want a town with two colleges and great live music (like Austin used to have) come to Denton! I used to rent a box of an apartment all bills paid for 390 though. Not too bad eh?
