Far North Dallas

Dallas > Far North Dallas

Pursuit of a more suburban lifestyle—bigger homes and yards—within the big city itself is what often draws people to life north of LBJ Freeway in Far North Dallas. That and the ability to enjoy the advantages of a Dallas address while being able to send children to Richardson or Plano schools. Access to the entertainment and dining district of Addison or the variety of ethnic cuisines available in Richardson doesn’t hurt either.
