Preparing for Your Big Move to Dallas

The Dallas-Fort Worth area leads the nation in the number of people relocating to the metropolis. If you're joining the more than 240 people who move to the city daily, you're in luck. Dallas is booming and vibrant — you'll find no shortage of shopping malls and megastores, independently owned shops and restaurants, green space, nightlife and more. If you're prepping for an upcoming moving day, keep reading to learn what you can start preparing yourself for.

Flex Your Artistic Side

If you think that moving to the heart of Texas means giving up even just a little bit of the culture and class that you might have enjoyed in your previous home city, think again. Dallas is actually home to the largest urban arts district in the United States. Covering more than 68 acres and stretching 19 continuous city blocks, the Dallas Arts District is home to dozens of art galleries, shops, restaurants and more, where you'll regularly find programs, exhibits and festivals going on. If you're looking to connect with other artistic people and make some new friends, this is a great place to start.

Get Ready to Stretch Your Legs

While it might be a bustling, modern city, Dallas has more than its fair share of green space. If you're looking to stretch your legs and get active when you get to your new home, head to one of the many state parks, metro parks and other outdoor spaces. There's even a project underway called the Trinity River Corridor, which is creating green space along the length of the Trinity River. When it's completed, the park will be 10 times the size of New York's famous Central Park.

Celebrate Your Big Move

Once the moving trucks have unloaded and you've started to settle in, hit the town and celebrate your big move. When you do, you'll have an endless number of options to choose from. Whether you're looking for a modern gastropub, a classic blues bar or a tacky tourist hangout, you'll find it in Dallas.

Don't Overcrowd Your New Space

Whether you're downsizing, upsizing or moving into a similarly sized apartment or home, the last thing you want to do is immediately overfill it with your old belongings. That's why it's always a good idea to check out your storage options before you get to your new home. From storing holiday decorations to stashing extra furniture that doesn't fit your new space, a storage unit can help you keep your new home decluttered so that you can settle in without the mess.

Enjoying Your New Texas Home

Dallas is a wonderful place for a fresh start. Before the big moving day, be sure to look into your storage options to stash your extra stuff. That way you can start enjoying everything Dallas has to offer, from the arts to the green space to the vibrant nightlife, without all that extra clutter getting in your way.
