Having moved to Dallas from Chicago as a kid in the ’80s and having gone to law school out East, I know that the perceptions and stereotypes of Dallas differ a lot from reality! I’ve lived in Dallas off and on for about twenty years (wow!), and I’ve seen the city grow and change over the years. Hell, I lived on McKinney Ave right after graduating college — before it was even called Uptown.
There are so many great places to visit and experiences this city has to offer so I’ve decided to launch a series of posts called My Real Dallas to show you the spots I love and the places I frequent. I think it’s important to explore the city you live in just like you would any city you visit on vacation!
I’ll also go through some basics for a first time visitor – things to do in Dallas, top Dallas attractions, etc. So stay tuned!
