The Chamber of Commerce pitch: "The Town of Little Elm is located on the shores of Lewisville Lake, north of Dallas. Conveniently located next to Frisco, Little Elm has seen significant growth since 2000, when the Town registered 3,600 residents ... With the enormous growth came some ‘growing pains,' mostly in the way of traffic congestion and delayed commercial development. Fortunately, the completion of the Dallas North Tollway to Highway 380 and the Lewisville Lake Toll Bridge has given residents easy access to the main arteries in northern Dallas ... The Town of Little Elm boasts a wide variety of housing opportunities as well. From master-planned communities with incredible parks and pools to the wooded lake-side lots, there’s something for everybody. Our respected and Academically Recognized schools provide a wonderful learning environment for all ages."
