Finding a Kickass Apartment in the 75002
For a heavy suburban area, Allen does have many opinions for renters! The properties are spread out all over the area, which is great for renters because it provides variety. Hoping to hit the trails and soak up some nature near your new place, then we suggest West Allen. However, if neighborhood and quick access to all the shops and eats is more your vibe, there are great properties right off 75 in South Allen.
Full transparency, if you choose to live here, you’ll need some wheels. DART is working on extending rails further north on US 75, so if you plan on staying in Allen, reliable public transportation could be an option in the future.
