Dallas: Final post and city evaluation

If you aren't familiar with our evaluation scale or why we've creating our own when so many are available, read this first! While in each city, I've been writing about what we like, don't like, and what we've found to experience. All posts on Dallas can be viewed by clicking the Dallas tag at the top of the page.

A few favorites:

Notes: I can genuinely say I miss Dallas. It's clean, dog-friendly, fairly inexpensive, and eventful. The economy is doing great and there is room for growth. It gets really hot, but that's what A/C is for. You don't have to shovel your car out from under piles of heat. Though it didn't seem particularly progressive, we were sometimes surprised by pockets of genuine culture, art, and some of the best vegan food ever.

We ranked Dallas lower in certain categories, but the city's growth should naturally resolve these. A solid foundation is being laid in Dallas to create one of the best places to live in the country. I'm looking forward to seeing what the city Dallas becomes five years from now.
