I loved growing up in Flower Mound. The schools are great and the people in this town are kind. It's in the perfect location from the three main hubs of DFW - it's about 30 minutes from Dallas, Fort Worth and Denton. Flower Mound has a great restaurant variety and awesome coffee shops! Trio and Edison Coffee are awesome places to sit and chill and super great study spots. 10/10 would recommend living in Flower Mound.

Flower Mound is one of the best communities in Denton County. It is a great place for families to live because the schools here are some of the best and it is a very safe place to live due to low crime rates. Because of this, the town is rapidly growing as people move for the excellent schools and family community. One thing I would like to see for Flower Mound is more of a town center. Even though this is a small town, there is not much of a central area. An attempt was almost made at one point, but the development turned into a fully residential project. This town is seemingly just house after house and I would like to see more areas of this town that are not residential. Overall, Flower Mound is a very nice place that I would definitely recommend for families.
Flower Mound is a town of roughly 70,000 residents but is spread out enough that you don't feel crowded in. The schools are top notch and are home to fantastic fine arts and academic programs. The neighborhoods are all very safe for families and kids. One downside is the nightlife. Due to Flower Mound's rather conservative views, very few nightlife hubs exist in the town. There are a couple movie theaters but most of the nightlife opportunities are hosted by local churches so if that isn't your scene, be prepared. There are tons of job opportunities but they are almost all for high school students. There are lots of jobs available to students that pay well and provide good experience but most Flower Mound residents with full time jobs have to commute to other suburbs.
