Officially a “town” rather than a city, Flower Mound draws a similar homebuyer as Highland Village but one more enamored with an easy commute than a lovely view of the lake. Flower Mound is closer to the airport, closer to Las Colinas. A Jewish resident says she’d like to see more religious diversity, noting the Christian pre-football prayer and constant Christmas wishes at the local stores. “I couldn’t find a bar mitzvah card one time at the local drugstore, and you have to drive to Dallas to find a kosher grocery store,” she says. Almost 13 acres of the town’s original mound of wildflowers and native grasses remain protected from development by the Mound Foundation, an appreciated nod to the town’s heritage.
