Fairview, Tx is a small diverse community with all the modern comforts of a big city like Dallas, Tx. It's a pleasant safe place to live because it offers so many worlds. There are tight-knit family-friendly communities and at the same time, there are homes that sit in one-acre open spaces. There are high profile trendy affordable corporate cafes and restaurants. But then you can turn around the corner and find a sweet mom and pop bakery or nursery.

I love living in Fairview! It has many things to do and the nature is so beautiful! There are so many houses to choose from and the country roads in the back are a nice addition to make the "city-ish" area feel more secluded. I only wish for less construction on Stacy road!
Fairview is a friendly, respectable small town. Fairview is great for family's and young adults, with a wide variety of shops and restaurants nearby.
