Grand Prairie is a suburb of both Dallas and Fort Worth and has a population of about 154,000. The city has a long history with aviation manufacturing and technology but has also been a great residential area as well.
Like most cities in Texas a car is mandatory for getting around Grand Prairie. Although it may not be easy to get around the city on foot, driving is a cinch. The city hosts 3 interstates that can take you pretty much anywhere that you could want to go.
<p>Locals start their days at the Waffle House which serves up breakfast all day and great burgers and melts during the day. It is a great place to satisfy that middle of the night hunger pang. Che Hong Kong gets high ratings for Vietnamese food by both locals and people working in the area. There are great Mexican places like Don Pablo's which is traditional Mexican cuisine or try Agua Azul for Mexican seafood dishes. You can't go wrong at either of them. Pizzas, fast food (especially Sonic) and others are widely available too.</p>
<p>You'll find plenty of watering holes at night and once settled into your Grand Prairie apartment you'll want to find one close to home. In the meanwhile, there's Appleby's, Chili's and more local places like Dave's Backroom Bar and Le Bar. With Dallas just a few minutes away, you can find upscale dance clubs and nightclubs there.</p>
