Recommendations on possible relocation to Fort Worth TX or Plano?

Does anyone have recommendations for good neighborhoods to explore in the Dallas Forth Worth TX area or Plano, for the purpose of relocating there? Please share any information that would be relevant for a young college graduate to know that would impact social, career, recreation, etc.

Much appreciated!

No personal experience in TX, but I know the owner of this website and she has lots of articles about moving out there.

good luck!

The Dallas Forth Worth metroplex is HUGE and Plano is just one suburb within it. To get a sense of distance, Plano is about 20 miles north of downtown Dallas and downtown Forth Worth is 35 miles west. Do they have a job lined up? If yes, I would highly recommend looking within a 15-20 minute no-traffic drive of that job to not spend their life in traffic. Also, what is a "good" neighborhood have for them? What is their budget for rent? Do they want to live in a more urban walkable neighborhood of or they looking for as much space as they can get? Do they want to live somewhere with older buildings or do they want a newly created neighborhood? The DFW has had a lot of infill in the last 20 years. I personally preferred the older neighborhoods closer to downtown, but I don't want recommend areas that are out of their budget. More details please!
