I love my town! Big lots for the houses give it a country feel, but you are always right around the corner from Wal-mart, the mall, a dozen beautiful parks, and wonderful restaurants. I have lived here my whole life and I have a hard time imagining living elsewhere.
Family friendly environment with good house market, great public schools and many activities to do! From various parks to shopping areas, a local hockey team and movie theaters. All within DFW area.
