Large home sites. Some of the best schools in Texas. Away from the big city but close enough to do anything and everything within 30-45 minutes.
I currently reside in Murphy, Texas and the living/lifestyle is overall fairly good! Great environment for raising a family with things to do. Very peaceful
It is a great place with a lot of trees and is a great place to live. I believe it is one of the safest places in the United States.
Murphy is quite a small town, split between the Plano ISD and Wylie ISD school districts. It is only 5 square miles, but there's still plenty to do. There are stores to shop at, places to eat, and gas stations if you're just passing through. Most of the people in Murphy are nice, and there are plenty of parks to keep the kids busy.
It's a smaller town, but still in the DFW suburbs so there are so many activities close by. The school systems are not as competitive as some of the nearby districts, but they still have a good education system. It is a nice family area.
Murphy, Texas is a pretty quiet town but is also very lively. This town's diversity is astounding. There are people from anywhere you can think of and the schools are just amazing.
Murphy is not a big city like Plano, but it is in a good suburban spot where big stores and restaurants are within a 5 minute reach. The public schools of Plano Independent School District are top notch, as Plano has one of the best school districts in the entire state. There is an abundance of recreation provided through an array of parks and recreational centers. Everybody is friendly and there is minimal crime, if any at all. There has been many homes popping up around Murphy over the years as developmental is still occurring. It is also in close vicinity to big cities such as Plano and Garland. Overall, Murphy is a good peaceful place to live with many opportunities for fun.
The neighborhood is amazing and safe. The houses and schools are amazing as well. When I first came to Murphy it was when it was all new and was getting built so I got a house that went up in value by a lot. Right now the crime over there is very low and has some of the best schools in that area.
I love the city of Murphy! It is such a great town that has much diversity and great local foods! Additionally, everything is a very close drive and everybody here is so friendly!
What I like about Murphy is the endless kindness shown by the residents. On every corner there seems to be someone who is willing to extend a helping hand to anyone who is going through a difficult time. The one thing I would change is cracking down on those who park their cars in the street. It is a danger to those driving and makes the overall environment not as pleasant to they eye.
I moved to Murphy about 12 years ago, and it was completely empty. Due to urbanization, Murphy quickly grew into a blooming city. It is overall a good and safe city. I recommend moving here.
I like the size and location of Murphy. It is not overdeveloped, and still has some open greenery around, which is nice to see. The size is on the smaller scale, which is nice if you have younger children in the public school system. The student to teacher ratio is smaller, and the schools seem to be less of a machine. The city council members I have contacted have always been very kind and seem to really care.
Murphy is family friendly and it has a wonderful park and a nearby school. Perfect for new families!
Overall the city is nice. There's good restaurants and it's a decent community. Currently what used to be the Albertsons has remained closed and empty though. It would be nice if that could become somthing new in the near future.
I grew up in Murphy, enjoying a lot of my time in this small town. The community life, from what I’ve seen and tasted, is nothing exceptionally great. Social connections stem mainly from school and jobs.
We love Murphy! We are a suburb of Plano so we're part of the metroplex but it still feels like a smaller community. The are great social media groups to network with neighbors and community members. It has really grown uo around us over the last 10 years so it has become more fast-paced but it still feels like home. We raised four children here and it had been a wonderful experience.
I have loved living here. I live on an acre lot but I'm only a mile from almost everything. I would like it to stop developing and I wish it was more bike friendly.
