City of Dallas Neighborhoods

About 1.3 million people live in Dallas proper, and new people are moving here every day.  Dallas communities are as diverse as our population, with Downtown and Uptown attracting those focused on urban living, while neighborhoods like Preston Hollow and Lakewood are right for people who want to be in town but have a little more space. Areas in southern Dallas are replete with nature; areas to the north are boomtowns with every modern convenience.
