But if that’s not enough, here are 3 more reasons why anyone and everyone should think about Garland as their next place to call home..
The Historic Downtown
There’s a lot of suburbs scattered around DFW but few have a downtown quite like Garland. It’s vintage charm that also blends modern industrial aesthetics is truly one-of-a-kind, and the 1941-built Plaza Theater, located right in the center of town, is one of the coolest, blast-from-the-past landmarks you’ll find anywhere.
Both Lake Ray Hubbard and Lavon Lake provide quick and easy access to some amazing outdoor recreational amenities. Whether it’s sunbathing on the shoreline or spending a day out on the boat fishing, being this close to the lake certainly has its perks.
If you like beer, Garland is the place for you. Two of DFW’s best local craft brews call Garland home in Intrinsic Brewing and Lakewood Brewing Co.
