Life in the City

We are within walking distance of a variety of stores around Snider Plaza, such as Chick-Fil-A, Jimmy John’s, Starbucks, CVS, a grocery store, and lots of boutiques and fun restaurants. Our community loves two-stepping, having burgers at Twisted Root, and going for walks and runs around White Rock Lake. There is always something interesting to do in Dallas!
