Northwest Dallas County

Northwest Dallas County offers a central location making it easy to commute to almost anywhere in the area, especially Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport – which is one reason so many companies have opted to headquarter here.  Within Irving lies Las Colinas, a newer mixed-use, master-planned community with luxury hotels, pretty houses, private clubs, urban lofts and restaurants.  The Town of Addison is a favorite of young, single, people who enjoy the abundant nightlife, the proximity to shopping, easy access to the Dallas North Tollway, and jobs galore.
