Cool Reviews

1 review
If you are looking for a rural, country atmosphere this is the town for you. Located west of DFW about 40 minutes allows easy access via I-20 and I-30 to the city. If you like easy access to everything within 5 minutes this would not be a location for you. There is a local restaurant, churches and local owner fresh produce available in season. Schools are within 5 minutes of most homes.
