North Dallas generally refers to the area north of highway 635 up to the George Bush Turnpike. It’s still the city of Dallas, but it’s not the typical downtown area you might think of when you hear about “The Big D.”
Some of the neighborhoods in this area are hallmarked for being the most prestigious in the metro. Preston Hollow and Lake Highlands are just two of many. North Dallas is a great place to live, as it’s the heart of the city, just minutes from downtown making for a short commute. Grocery stores, local eats like Coal Vines pizza or Del Frisco’s, are in endless supply. The Galleria mall area is the best landmark to signal the start of North Dallas.
Are you looking for a quiet neighborhood or would you rather be close to the hustle and bustle? Do you want an industrial-style loft or an open-concept apartment with lots of space? North Dallas has hundreds of living options. You can get a space right along 635 or retreat into a less busy street in a neighborhood off of Preston Road.
