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

One of the very best areas in the city for young, urban professionals, the State Thomas neighborhood in Dallas is city living at its very best. Most housing in this region consists of upscale townhomes and condominiums, along with some apartments. Anywhere in this neighborhood is only a short walk to the McKinney Avenue Trolley, which will take you anywhere in the neighborhood or the Uptown district, which is well-known for its upscale bars and restaurants. The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) buses and trains can also be accessed form the trolley, making this one of the very few neighborhoods in Dallas where you can live comfortably without a vehicle.

Do expect to pay a premium price for living in this neighborhood, and expect to get a large return on your investment as well. Your neighbors will be an eclectic mix of ethnic groups, most with at least a bachelor's degree or higher working in white-collar and technical or engineering fields. The neighborhood is very close to Central Expressway, the main north-south artery in the city, so it's easy to get anywhere from here.

Experience the best Dallas has to offer with a move or visit to the State Thomas district.
