"The place in Dallas for young urban professionals to work and play"

An area that has seen a renaissance in the past couple of decades, the Government District of Downtown Dallas is now home to a growing number of urban professionals. This is one of the few neighborhoods in Dallas where you can live and work comfortably without the use of a car as Dallas Area Rapid Transit serves with area with rail and bus service.

This is a perfect place to live for the young, urban professional who works downtown or any other part of town that can be reached by DART. There are some condominiums that can be had for right around $100,000, and the growing popularity of urban living in Dallas may mean that this is a sound investment. Just to the northwest of the neighborhood are two of the best spots for singles and nightlife in the entire Dallas area, the West End entertainment district and Uptown. If you want food and entertainment a little closer to home you can choose from fast food restaurants and there are several bars in the downtown area as well.

The Government District of Downtown Dallas is for anyone who enjoys being in the heart of a bustling city with all that it has to offer.
