"The place to be for SMU students and other young people"

Featuring Tudor-style homes that date back to the 1920's, the Glencoe neighborhood of East Dallas is located just southeast of Southern Methodist University. This neighborhood is also known as the M Streets and it also has also apartments in the area popular with SMU students and some of the homes are rented out to students as well.

Glencoe is bordered on the west by Central Expressway, the main north-south highway in the city making it easy to get anywhere from this neighborhood. Being so close to a major university ensures that there is plenty to do any time of the week. The Hip Pocket Theater has been putting on quality plays and shows at a discount price since the 1970's. There are also plenty of good places to eat that won't cost you an arm and a leg. Aw Shucks Oyster Bar on the eastern edge of the neighborhood on Greenville Avenue has some of the best seafood in the area. Snuffer's is the place to grab a great greasy cheeseburger and fries. Since Greenville Avenue is host to a number of great nightspots, the party is always going on somewhere.

If you're young and single, this is probably one of the best places for you to live in the city of Dallas.
