Dallas is among the top ten biggest metropolises in the United States and can offer an affordable, high quality standard of living. With leafy, spacious neighborhoods of historic 1920s architecture and ample parks, Dallas is a good choice for families in particular. It has one of the largest school districts in the country and also a selection of international and national schools, such as the German and French schools. In terms of crime, Dallas does not have higher rates than other US communities of similar size, however, there are some areas and suburbs that you might want to avoid. The weather in Dallas is perfect for those expats who love a lot of sunshine, with very dry and hot summer months. Thanks to this climate, outdoor sports are played year round and bike paths, water activities, and running trails at popular White Rock Lake help residents make the most of the outdoorsy lifestyle. The thrilling Six Flags Theme Park and Nasher Sculpture Center will keep all tastes entertained, while the high-end boutiques of the Galleria and cocktail bars of uptown Dallas allow you to embrace the Dallas lifestyle. Mass and public transportation in this Texan city counts with different options such as commuter and light rails, buses, and the Trolley, a nostalgic streetcar. Nevertheless, the main way of transport in Dallas and across the USA is typically still a private car. There are, however, also plenty of sidewalks and bikeways for those who love the fitness life and like to do some good for the environment. Dallas is also rich in terms of nightlife and leisure options, with one of the highest restaurants per capita count across the United States. Expats can enjoy Tex Mex, Barbeque spare ribs, cheese enchiladas and many more delicious, Texan dishes. In terms of nightlife, Dallas offers a wide variety of dancing clubs, live shows, stand-up comedy and much more. Dallas is more business oriented than its fellow Texan cities, with banking, commerce, IT, transportation, and particularly telecommunications all thriving. Competition for the best jobs is high and those with the most experience stand the best chance of succeeding in the Dallas corporate world. You can look forward to high-skilled jobs that are very well paid enabling you to have a great quality life in Dallas. And with InterNations, it's easy to get to know and connect with like-minded expatriates who are probably in a similar situation as you.
