Where are the best suburbs to live in Dallas area?
Thinking of moving to the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Would like to know which suburb(s) would be the best for job opportunities, nice and affordable housing (built within 10 yrs), low crime, friendly neighborhoods, and not far from things to do. Do not have any children so no need to worry about school systems. Thanks for your input!

I'm with Plano, Allen, and Frisco... Stick with the north side of Dallas.

Yes, like the others have said you would be wise to stick to the northern area of Dallas, Ft. Worth. The Grapevine area is central to everything but pricey. We lived in the city of Grand Prairie ( a middle, south suburb) and it was going down hill as far as crime and property values.

There are nice suburbs with low crime and affordable housing all over the Metroplex, they are NOT limited just to cities north of Dallas. Yes, Plano, Frisco, Allen, and McKinney have great neighborhoods, but so do many of the other DFW suburbs.
