I have lived in Southlake for about 15 years and have absolutely loved it! It's a suburb of Dallas and has a super cute and homey feel. Southlake is pretty much middle-upper class living. The city has a town square which is the center of all the action in Southlake. The only movie theatre in South lake is in town square, so if course it's busy. Southlake is a fun environment and atmosphere. The city hosts annual events such as art in the square, Octoberfest, the Christmas lighting, 4th of July, and more. I would like to see more diversity in Southlake, but otherwise, its an amazing place to live.

Its a great town! The people can be very nice and the overall feel is great. The school district is amazing and the teachers are so helpful. Southlake town square has lots of variety when is comes to food and shopping. Right across from town square is park village. There are many popular stores in town square and popular restaurants in park village. Southlake is definitely a town to experience.
Excellent neighborhood for families, the new homes are very good but the prices are climbing fast. The schools have consistently had great ratings and have been really good to go thru. Overall a good neighborhood for families looking to move into the dallas Fort Worth area. The commute to DFW is really fast and takes about 15 mins at anytime of the day.
The shops and town center is really very well planned and built. New shops and restaurants are coming in every month. Fast growing business environment with westlake hosting some good large companies.
