Dallas is the ideal balance of nightlife, luxury, urban living, walkability, and quiet ‒‒ if you live above the endless hum of the streets. That’s what makes high-rise living in Dallas such a draw for upper-market buyers. Three of the best buildings in town are:

Vendome

Vendome, in Turtle Creek, is a luxury high-rise with a distinct European flair. French architecture accents luxurious finishes, high ceilings,and and beautiful terraces in the homes make you feel like you're in a resort in the South of France. Except that here on the northern part of Lemmon Avenue, you get to experience Dallas’s thriving nightlife and arts scene, just to the side of the city’s business epicenter.

Forth Worth is no longer the distant cousin to Dallas. The city is its own and it rivals anything its more famous neighbor is doing. It’s also on of the hottest places to live in Texas, especially in these neighborhoods.

Meadows West/River Park

The Trinity River area is booming. New businesses and residences are going up almost weekly, especially in the Meadows West/River Park area. Meadows West and River Park are adding hotels and amenities, and newly built family-sized homes starting around $400,000. Also, the Waterside will be a big draw once it’s built. This is a 63-acre, mixed-used development that will be anchored a Whole Foods and a high-end hotel.

Finding some time with the family can be tough, sure, but finding fun things to do together isn’t Dallas is full of cool family activities, like:

The Dallas Arboretum

Trust us, kids love the Arboretum. This colorful oasis from the big city is a literal breath of fresh air, and some of the flora is alien-looking enough to intrigue even those most prone to saying “I’m booooored!” Interactive exhibits and hands-on places around the Arboretum make it extra fun.

The Perot Science Museum

Kid or kid at heart, Dallas’s 21st century answer to Philly’s famed Franklin Institute is a for-real wonderland. Just try to spend an hour there and have nothing to do. You and the family can explore space, dinosaurs, and even the world of sports before lunch (if

Dallas has no shortage of malls, like The Galleria and North Park Mall. But everyone knows the best shopping happens where the action is. If you’re looking to do some big-league shopping, visit these areas:

The Shops at Park Lane, 8080 Park Lane

This blend of designer-value and traditional retail mixes premium stores with distinctive restaurants, and the largest Whole Foods Market in North Texas. There’s also boutique fitness offerings in a modern urban setting.

West Village, McKinney Avenue

“Uptown's Downtown” is Dallas' most vibrant shopping and dining district. It’s walkable, it’s in-town, it’s a real neighborhood, and it’s near the city’s best restaurants. Tons of shops lie right near the DART Rail, the McKinney Avenue Trolley, and the

Yes, Dallas is very cosmopolitan, and yes, it’s very upscale in spots. But this is still Texas, and that means it’s still native turf for country-western music. Drop into a few of these joints for a genuinely Texan good time.

Katy Trail Ice House

Settled in the middle of Uptown’s portion of the Katy Trail is this Austin-influenced beer garden. The 50-plus beers on tap and the wide, bustling outdoor seating areas are enough to lure anyone already. But when the country-western kicks in, it’s a block party. It’s one of the best patios in Dallas and one of the best places to wander into a show to remember.

Gas Monkey Bar & Grill

In Far West Dallas, on Technology Blvd., sits Gas Monkey, which offers two premium music venues. Live music is the pulse
