Garland: A Diamond in the Rough
Though may not have heard of it, Garland is actually one hulkin' city. At over a quarter of a million citizens, it's the twelfth largest city in the Lone Star State. A “powerhouse suburb” of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (what a cool word), Garland has plenty of amenities to keep renters happy and entertained. The town's top employers are Sears and the techno-chic Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems. Since there are such large employers right in town, residents of Garland don’t have to commute into Dallas or Fort Worth for work.

Then and Now
In the mid-1800s, settlers petered out of their old hometowns and into Texas’s Peters colony. Within a few decades, Garland would become a bona fide community. In the 1920s, the population had grown to over a thousand and the community was finally electrified (in the good way; the way that means they were able to use electricity). Today, there are over 225,000 people who live in Garland and each and every one of these folks is proud to call this city home.
Living in Garland
The quality of life and economic prospects in Garland are pretty darn good. This is a typical, middle-class, suburban city and there are a host of ready and willing-to-hire employers, including Kraft Foods and General Dynamics. If you’re looking for work, chances are that you’ll be able to find a great job in this city. Some juicy census data reveals that the vacancy rate is only 6.4%. This can make it hard to find an apartment but, fortunately, the low vacancy rate hasn’t made apartment rental rates soar.
Let's talk about Garland's neighborhoods for a moment. There’s Centerville, Eastern Hills, Duck Creek, Rose Hill, and Border of Richardson and Dallas, which is one of the easiest neighborhoods to find. Some say that the Rose Hill neighborhood was named after early settler, P.W. Rose. Some say it got its name from the roses that grew in a local churchyard. We may never know the true story behind how this neighborhood got its name but then, there are bigger mysteries out there.
The Where of Garland
Where do you go if you want to spend some time outdoors? That’s easy. Head down to Spring Creek Forest, a preserved slice of nature that’s home to over 600 plants and animals.
What if you’re hungry? Where can you go to grab a bite to eat? Hubbard's Cubbard comes to mind. This restaurant’s BBQ, chocolate pie, and coffee are some of the best around; just read the reviews!
Where can you go to play? Where to start? There’s Surf and Swim, an establishment that needs no explanation. There’s also Amusements of Texas and the bizarrely named, Radio Active Clown. These are both amusement parks, but we’re a little worried about Radio Active Clown. What manner of amusement do they serve up? You’ll have to visit to find out.
