Dallas Bragging Rights

We love Dallas and if you live here, you probably do too. Thankfully, some experts seem to agree with us.

RelocateAmerica just released their 14th annual list of The Top 100 Places to Live in 2011 . The list takes into account many factors including employment, education, community leadership and overall quality of life.

Dallas proudly boasts the number 5 overall spot on this years list!

With a population of just over 1,200,000 (in Dallas County), our city is recognized as the Southwest’s leading business and financial center with one of the top convention cities in the United States. Dallas is devoted to business with its concentration of high-tech companies, corporate headquarters and wholesale trade markets. While other cities in the country have wavered in the face of the recent economy, Dallas has continued to thrive. The only other Texas city in the top 10 was Austin, claiming the number 1 spot this year.

As a bonus, this year, RelocateAmerica is giving local residents the chance to vote for their city in various breakout categories. Voting is on now through August 30th for The Top 10 Places to Play .
