My husband & I will soon be moving from Sweden to Dallas. He will be working in Denton & his job will involve a fair bit of travel. I am terribly confused about where a good place to live would be. Our son is already in uni so it's just the two of us moving. I would ideally like to be in close proximity to shops & cafes etc. Basically where there are better chances of meeting people & making friends. At the same time I don't want the commute for my husband to be more than 30-40 mins each way. We would prefer condos to the hassle of house & garden... we have looked at condos in Frisco (closer to Little Elm) that are nice but they seem rather remotely placed. Also saw some places in Las colinas & Flower Mound (found it quite suburban) Uptown (Turtle creek) seemed nice but the commute in traffic would be really long.
I am quite confused, trying to strike a balance between a slightly more urban lifestyle and commute to office & airport.
Any advice from people who have lived in Dallas or are currently in the area would be greatly appreciated.
