Westlake is rapidly building up their stores and shops. Westlake is very close to Southlake (which has many stores, restaurants, and other businesses) but with significantly less people and traffic, giving Westlake a peaceful feel.

High income neighborhood that has all the major banks, Fidelity, and Charles Schwab. A lot of walking and biking trails, homes with plenty of land, and definitely family orientated.
Westlake is the place to live if you want your children to attend Westlake Academy, a very good charter school.
