EY Dallas – Areas Near the Office
The EY Dallas office is located in the Victory Park area of Dallas. This area is perhaps the most vibrant, fun and trending in popularity area of Dallas currently! It is full of great restaurants, shops and so many things to do! And the buildings are new and the streets are clean.
A huge attraction that defines the Victory Park is the incredible American Airlines Center! This is a fabulous venue where our Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars (hockey) play. But then add in many concerts and fun events throughout the year and this place is always busy and fun! Take a look at 2 videos that I filmed during an event to get a feel of this: AA Center 1 – AA Center 2
Another GREAT feature of the EY Dallas office location is how convenient it is to drive to airports! You can literally see the exit and highways easily. For example, Victory park has quick access to the North Dallas Tollway which is the main north and south way to get to other parts of North Dallas. It’s also a super quick way to get to the Dallas Love Field airport (about 15 minutes away). And you can also quickly go to DFW International Airport, about 35 minutes away.
Also nearby you – in walking distance – is Uptown Dallas! That has traditionally been the most popular area of Dallas for young professionals. The part of Uptown that is in walking distance is the Pearl district of Uptown Dallas. This area is VERY FUN and URBAN. You can feel the energy here – because it’s located in the most popular area of town for young professionals – UPTOWN DALLAS! The Pearl area is also in quick walking distance to other neighborhoods in and near Uptown Dallas, which include the West Village, Victory Park and Turtle Creek. Or you can take the free Uptown Dallas Trolley to get around Uptown too! 🙂
The EY Dallas office is near Downtown Dallas as well. There are many popular attractions in the Arts District of Downtown Dallas like the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Symphony and more.
NOW, let’s see some video tours of those areas near your office:

Apartment Search Tips!
Finding an apartment in Dallas lately is quite challenging! I’ve put some tips below to help make that process easier for you!
- Start your search as early as possible – even 6-9 months in advance!
- Extend your search area focus to be wider than normal, to include multiple areas.
- Be ready to apply early to lock in better rent values for your move in date.
- Consider having a roommate to reduce costs. The cost per bedroom is cheaper for 2 bedrooms vs. a one bedroom.
- Use an apartment search service to save time and remove stress.
