Not all single people want to fill their nights with parties and bar hopping, but if you’re the kind that does, you’re going to love Lower Greenville. The area is known as the party hub of Dallas, with more bars and clubs per square mile than you’ll be able to visit in a year. There are also some great boutiques, galleries, and vintage shops to keep you entertained during the daylight hours.

Design District

6. Design District

According to Extra Space Storage, the Design District is one of the best places to live in Dallas for singles. Why? Maybe it’s the very attractive property prices, which puts the median monthly rent at $1440 and the median purchase price at $112,600. Perhaps it’s the fact that its streets are safer than 33% of the rest of Texas. Or it could be that it has the largest concentration of art galleries in the city, not to mention an abundance of upscale restaurants, breweries, and small boutiques. If you like neighborhoods that are welcoming, vibrant, and packed with things to see and do, the Design District could well be your ideal home.
