Oak Lawn is located just north of Victory Park and nestled between Turtle Creek and the Dallas North Tollway. Just minutes north of Downtown, Oak Lawn provides more affordable living options than the neighboring Uptown. In addition, you get a little more space for the dollar though, and there are lots of modern apartments to choose from. The individual homes, duplexes, and townhomes tend to be a bit older (but with arguably more character). Oak Lawn is known for its artsy flare in otherwise conservative surroundings. There are plenty of amenities in Oak Lawn. A number of great restaurants are scattered throughout the area, and a great Whole Foods for the organic shopper.
