Popular Neighborhoods for Millennials in Dallas

As millennials, we want unpredictable fun and unique experiences. It’s even what we’re looking for in a Dallas neighborhood as we move into our new apartments and condos. Convenience and walkability are always important but if you can add “fun” to the list of pros, you just might have us sold. We visited four neighborhoods in Dallas that are great for millennials in search of a new nest.

Bishop Arts District/Oak Cliff

The Bishop Arts District in northern Oak Cliff has been on the rise for quite a few years. New luxury apartments are popping up to make room for new residents in this artsy part of town. You’ll find a mix of the most popular Dallas boutiques, one-of-a-kind eateries, and art galleries. Lucky you! These are your new neighbors. While quiet during the week, the Bishop Arts District really comes alive at night and on weekends. There’s even a nearby co-working space, Common Desk, for the entrepreneur millennial.

Deep Ellum

An edgier neighborhood that is attracting millennials is Deep Ellum. Loft-style apartments with the coveted exposed brick and pipes are waiting for you! On most blocks, find walls of graffiti and art that reflect the great artists of Dallas and are popular for Instagram photo ops. Looking for nightlife? Hit some of the best entertainment spots and bars such as Armoury D.E. and The Bomb Factory, if you’re looking for an unforgettable night of fun. Perhaps even pick up a late night donut from Glazed Donut Works into the wee hours of the morning.
