If you can afford it and like being closer to the hustle and bustle of the city, the areas adjacent to North Lamar offer plenty of action and a variety of architectural styles. Generally speaking, housing farther north near 183 will be more affordable than homes on the southern side of the neighborhood, largely because the southern side is a more convenient location for getting onto the main highways and into surrounding areas.
