Zombieland’s Garland Sleight Aside, This Centrally-Located City Has Great Homes

Share News:

We’re not sure what Hollywood has against Garland. In the opening scenes of the Emma Stone movie Zombieland, Jesse Eisenberg’s character is at a service station running from a zombie. In a voiceover, he says: “I’m in Garland, Texas. And it may look like zombies destroyed it, but that’s actually just Garland.”

For this week’s Suburb Sunday, we turn our attention to three great, very zombie-free homes in Garland, a suburb just northeast of Dallas. Garland really covers a lot of ground, stretching from the city’s northmost reaches at President George Bush Turnpike near Richardson all the way south to I-30 near Rowlett.

The city is located mostly in Dallas County, though some parts are located in Collin and Rockwall counties. According to the 2017 estimates, Garland is the 95th most-populous city in the U.S. and the 12th-most populous in Texas, and we’re positive that none of its residents are zombies.

    If you’re so high on Garland, why not come down to south Garland for lunch? Oh, wait, that’s because there’s no decent restaurants to speak of down where I live. Only the trailer-created potholes left for dead by the city, positioned between flowering distribution centers provide a reminder of any ongoing human activity. Why Garland is wasting what can only be called super-prime suburban real estate, less than two miles from 635 and fifteen minutes from downtown Dallas on a clear day by colossally failing to establish projects that attract residential developers to the area, is beyond me. Our rent-saturated neighborhood with a violent crime rate that rivals Compton and a Next Door website proliferating “shots fired, heard” comments every single week hasn’t been destroyed by zombies. It’s ground zero for where the zombie apocalypse will occur.
