Oak Lawn is best known for its enviable location next to serenely winding Turtle Creek. Highrise condominiums offer luscious views of the creek and surrounding parks. As the closest area for inner city living just north of downtown, Oak Lawn predictably has a lively appeal for nightlife and the arts, and is the home of the famous Dallas Theatre Center, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Many of the patrons and artists who populate the nearby Arts District live here, along with professionals who work downtown. Oak Lawn can be expensive, with luxury apartments going for more than $1,000 a month and condominiums in the $200,000 and up range, but good deals can be found for some renters.
