No, it’s not impossible to be on the outside and still be on the inside with access to it all at the same time. Meet the town of Addison, Texas. Addison is located north of Dallas at the intersection of I-635 and the Dallas North Tollway.

Addison has a lot to offer within the town limits and packs a tremendous amount of shopping, nightlife, and restaurants into an area of only 4.4 square miles, as well as providing easy access to the rest of what Dallas has to offer. Addison, once known as Noell Junction, changed its name to Addison in 1902, taking its name from the first Postmaster who served from 1908 to 1916, Addison Robertson. On June 15th, 1953, the City of Addison was incorporated. * Since the 1980’s Addison has experienced explosive growth; even though the permanent population is only about 13,000 during the day, the population has swelled to more than 100,000!
