I knew exactly what I wanted when I started my hunt for apartments in far North Dallas. I did want a nice place to lay my head every night, but I was far more interested in what the complex was offering me outside my front door. I mainly use any apartment I have as a place to sleep or to stay in when the weather is really bad. Since the weather is usually pretty great here, that means I am outside a lot. I wanted to look at pictures of the pools each complex has as well as the fitness centers.
If a complex does not have those two things, then I am simply not interested. Temperatures can get really hot here in Texas, so the first thing I want to do when I am home after a long day at work is hop in the pool. As soon as I park my car, I grab a quick shower and change into my swim trunks, and I can spend anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours in the pool, depending on who else is in there with me at any given time.
Because of that, having a really nice pool to swim in is imperative for me. When I saw that The Oaks of North Dallas Apartments has not one, and not two, but three swimming pools, I was instantly sold. I did check out the fitness center pictures first before making the decision, but I was happy with what I saw. There are so many other things too that made me choose this apartment complex over all the others, but these were the top two things. I have met some great people since moving in, and I am looking forward to getting to know even more who live here too.
