Jason C.

Everyone—and their family—wants to live in a nice area. When it comes to major cities, there are good areas and bad areas. Sometimes there are really good areas and other times there are really bad areas. Dallas, being a major city, has all types of neighborhoods—good or bad. Niche did the heavy lifting and detailed the absolutely best neighborhoods to live in around the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

When it comes to the best, there are a few specific factors they take into consideration. These are:

  • Public Schools
  • Housing
  • Good for Families
  • Crime & Safety
  • Nightlife
  • Diversity

In this article, we’re going to examine these six ranking factors as we learn about various neighborhoods surrounding the Dallas area. Together, these factors give an aggregate score, or letter rating, to the neighborhood being graded.

As mentioned before, Niche did the grading for us. The “grade” is essentially an A-through-F score akin to one a student would get in class. Since we’re reviewing only the best neighborhoods, there will be no “F” scores in any of the six ranking factors; instead, we’ll learn about what makes these neighborhoods the best of the best in the Dallas area. And, if you’re considering a move to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you can use this list to help you choose which neighborhood you’d like to live in, based on the factor that’s most important to you. Let’s get started!
