I have lived in Southeast Dallas, TX my entire life and would not trade it for any place in North America. My neighborhood of Southeast Dallas has been very well kept up and clean compared to other parts of Dallas, which I am fortunate to say that since many areas are run down and have been taken over by homeless people, drugs and gangs. My only complaint that I would have it the heat here is very dry and hot but from what I am told it is like that in many other places also so no since in complaining about it.
The Christmas season will be here before we know it and in my area of Texas there are many celebrations that you will not ifnd anywhere else including the College Station-Santa's Wonderland. Santa's Wonderland is a Christmas park open from Thanksgiving Day until New Year's Eve. The park offers Christmas lights , a cowboy snowman, a mechanical bull, carriage rides, Santa's Town and Christmas movies at the outdoor theater. Ticket prices vary for each activity. Another attraction that is very popular in my area is the Houston-Holiday of Lights. This starts the Christmas season off at the first week of December with the Mayor's Holiday of Lights, a free tree lighting ceremony, and a fireworks show.
When it comes to eating I believe that we have the best restaurants. The restaurants that we we like to eat at the most is the Amuse Restaurant and Lounge, they have top of the line American food for a somewhat pricey menu but it is worth going there once in a while, they are located on Lamar Street. The next restaurant on the top of our list to visit is JR's Catfish on East Saner Ave. The choice of seafood that they have to offer is amazing and the price is very affordable for just about anyone.
