3. Food - Dallas has more restaurants per capita than New York City! Swing by Keller’s Drive-In for some old fashioned burgers at old fashioned prices, grab a “sammich” from Uncle Uber’s, or indulge in some adult mac ’n cheese at Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill. Another personal favorite is Slowbone BBQ. A must-have that even the locals will recommend.

4. Music – If you crave a thriving music scene, Dallas ain’t just Country ya’ll. This city produced Demi Lavato, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Dixie Chicks and Erykah Badu. Take your family to listen to the orchestra at Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center or see your favorite band at Grenada Theater. If you love music, you’ll love moving to Dallas!

5. Theater – Featuring the historic Majestic Theater and the elegant Winspear Opera House, Dallas is a theater mecca in the south. Whether it’s Broadway blockbusters on tour or local community productions, you can find everything in the “Big D” and even catch a show at the Dallas Theater Center, the only theater in the U.S. designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. “There’s even a showtune called Dallas.”

6. Museums – Fill your minds with history, culture and science at the many museums including the George W. Bush Library and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. You could even spend a week exploring the free Dallas Museum of Art.

7. Nature – Reconnecting with nature is easy when you move to Dallas. Home to more than 400 parks and the famous Dallas Arboretum, you can walk or jog through the city on Katy Trail, meet baby Kopano at the Dallas Zoo, or visit the tropical birds and fish in the Dallas World Aquarium’s rain forest.

8. Romance - A high ratio of unmarried guys and gals plus a low cost of living make Dallas the perfect place to find love. Woo your date at the romantic Fountain Place, then celebrate your anniversary with style at Reunion Tower.

9. Weather - Dallas has lovely springs, hot summers, pleasant autumns and mild winters. Or as locals say, almost summer, summer, still summer and Christmas. Chances are you won’t get snowed in after you move to Dallas, but if it does snow you’ll probably enjoy a day off work!
