Interesting that the age of the average Dallasite is one of the youngest in the nation.

Why DO we live here?

Because we were born here and chose not to move? For obscure personal reasons? For family reasons? Because we knew other people who lived here? Because we were offered a job in Dallas? Because the cost of living is below the national average for metro areas?

I moved back to Dallas after living in NYC and Florida and overseas; this second time around, I find much more to love about the city and metro area. More later….

    Family – they are all in the area. I lived in Denton briefly (for school) but moved back closer to Dallas last year (the drive was getting to me and Denton has grown in the number of businesses they have, but they don’t have the roads to accommodate them and the traffic they bring).

    DFW Airport is a major reason for living in Dallas. With over 1300 daily departures, I can be almost anywhere in the world in 1-13 hours. With daily flights to Europe/Asia/South America, this is an awesome benefit to living in a “landlocked” region. Also relocating from California, I can be with relatives in under 4 hours, which is a great bonus. Not to say that the best thing about Dallas is being able to leave conveniently. But the DFW airport is an economic engine for the region which creates 10’s of thousands of jobs which also make me feel secure about the local economy.
