Will speak specifically to Grandview, TX. Great small town to live in. Typically people commute to larger towns nearby. Fort Worth, Burleson, Waxahachie, Hillsborro, Cleburne. All within 30 minute drive. The school system in Grandview is top notch. Small town feel. Teachers will call to see if your child is not at school to make sure he/she is doing OK. Great churches in the area as well. Rec sports for kids is available for all types of sports. A really tight nit community.

Wonderful churches of all faiths in this community. They have excellent fire, ambulance, and police services available at all hours to help protect the community. New stores opening up weekly to help provide better for community. Plenty of activities for everyone of all ages due to the numerous parks located around town. Numerous activities planned for children all throughout the year. Swimming pools and exercise facilities for people in the community.
I love Burleson, Texas and call it my hometown. Originally, my family is from Fort Worth, but my sister moved into Burleson more than 23 years ago and has never left! My family and I moved into this area in 2006 and then to Houston to be near my parents for almost 5 years. We relocated back to Burleson in 2012 and will stay for the foreseeable future! There is a population boom over the last few years and some who have been here for years are not convinced it's for our communities good. The small town has boomed into a thriving cosmopolitan area filled with opportunity for our residents to live a fuller life while leaving acres and acres of farm land and country property to those who enjoy a simpler lifestyle. We have a little bit of everything! Come check us out!!
