Dallas County is full of suburbs and the much-maligned strip malls. Dallas proper (Uptown, Oak Cliff, East Dallas, West Dallas, Highland Park, Vickery Meadows, et al.) is a huge metropolis, and getting more urban every second. It's where the good clubs and good eats are. Yeah, it's behind when compared to NYC or DC, but it's making up for it without losing its slight Southern charm. I practically grew up downtown. That is where life is interesting. My family lives in Suburbia thirty minutes away, and I hate it. It's boring as shit out here. And whoever suggested Uptown needs to point out how pricey Uptown is.
I'm not confusing anything.
I grew up in Lakewood / UP. I've lived all over the city and outskirts.
I disagree. You seem to be lumping all of Dallas County into one thing you really, really dislike. To each their own.
