Single family homes and apartments, great parks, lots of walkers and runners, but suburan so driving is essential. Small urban area is growing where restaurants and shops are in walking distance

Many national chain restaurants, not many local restaurants except for TexMex food. India, Middle Eastern and Asian restaurants are growing.
Diverse neighborhood in terms of nationality, race, education and income. Also more politically diverse than most of North Texas.
