Northeast Dallas County

Two big communities – Richardson and Garland – make up Northeast Dallas County, which includes the Telecom Corridor, named for its concentration of high-tech firms such as Texas Instruments, Ericsson, and Samsung Mobile.  Richardson is a fast commute to downtown Dallas or the Plano/Frisco area, with lots of affordable single-family homes, good schools, and a diverse population.  The City of Garland is an older city with many affordable single-family homes and apartments.  Lake Hubbard and easy access via the President George Bush Turnpike and Interstate 30 are some of the top reasons people choose the upscale suburb of Rowlett.
