Moving to a new city and becoming familiar with its neighborhoods and happenings is a source of adventure for some people, and a source of anxiety for others. Black Tie Moving can help you with long distance moving if you are moving to Dallas from out of town, and we can help get you settled in. Dallas is an expansive collection of smaller cities connected by highway, and navigating within her limits can be confusing at first. Here are a few pointers to help get you where you want to go.
Arts, Culture and Food
If you are interested in culture and the arts, you may think that you will be disappointed when you move to Dallas. But bear in mind that Dallas has a world-class art museum (Dallas Museum of Art), the Winspear Opera House, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, all within walking distance of one another. Make a day of it and have a picnic at nearby Klyde Warren Park, which was literally built on top of Woodall Rogers Freeway!
The Dallas Library contains a large genealogical collection, an original copy of the Declaration of Independence, and original works by William Shakespeare. When you’re done with that and famished, visit one of dozens of music venues (including the House of Blues and the Granada Theater) and hundreds of bars, lounges and restaurants serving just about any ale, cocktail and cuisine that you could ever desire.
Hey There, Sports Fans!
If you are a sports fan, you already know that Dallas is home to America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys. It is also home to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, who now entertain audiences in many more places than the sidelines of football games. They travel the world for the USO and even have their own reality TV show!
Additionally, Dallas is home to the NHL Stanley Cup winner Dallas Stars and the 2011 NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks! Home court and ice for the teams is located at the American Airline Center on Victory Avenue. Stretching out a little further, the Dallas Cowboys Stadium is in Arlington, alongside the Texas Rangers’ Ball Park, so you’ll have to head to Arlington to catch a baseball game.
Shop ‘Til You Drop
If you love to shop, you will have plenty of motive and opportunity in Dallas! Home to shopping mecca Neiman Marcus, Dallas is a shopper’s dream, especially if said shopper seeks high fashion and couture. Some of the most popular shopping destinations include the longstanding Galleria and NorthPark malls in North Dallas, the Shops at Legacy in Plano, and the West End MarketPlace.
If getting the best bang for your buck is your thing, you don’t have to break the bank to get your shopping kicks in Dallas. The Premium Outlets of Allen and Grand Prairie offer slashed prices on brand name shoes, apparel, accessories and more. Additionally, you’ll find discount shopping like Ross, Burlington Coat Factory, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx located all throughout the city, plus dozens of strip malls, Wal-Mart and Target locations.
Business First, Then Gluttonous Pleasure
If you are moving to Dallas from out of town, there is a good chance you are doing so because of business. If so, your employer may be one of the largest enterprises in the United States or even the world. The city is home to 18 companies on the Fortune 500 list and hundreds of small and mid-sized businesses and start-ups. Household brands like Dell, Hewlett Packard (HP), GameStop, J.C. Penney, Frito Lay and Rolex all make Dallas their headquarters. Additionally, medical, technological, fashion, design, finance, advertising and marketing industries are booming here. Texas is not just about oil and cattle!
People come to Dallas from all over Texas and all over the world every year for the State Fair of Texas. The State Fair of Texas continues to showcase Texas’ agriculture and ever-expanding deep-fried food creativity (deep-fried guacamole, anyone?), and also includes a full-scale auto show and the Red River Rivalry between Texas and the University of Oklahoma, one of the most legendary rivalries in college football.
We think that you will find the people in Dallas to be friendly and welcoming. If you’re considering making a long distance move to Dallas, Black Tie Moving would like to represent Dallas hospitality by helping you and your family get your stuff here in one piece. Let us make a good first impression on you and set a new high standard of living in Dallas with our long distance moving services!
