63 North Texas towns ranked. Which came out on top? Which sank to the bottom? And where does your community fall on the list?
Residents tout their short walk to Snider Plaza, local parks, and response time for emergency services. But it’s the high-performing schools and sense of community that brought (and keeps) residents here. “When something happens to somebody, you know you’re going to have a million people bringing you dinner, picking up your kids at school, going to the grocery store for you,” one resident says. The people of UP also like that they get to live in a small town yet are close to all that Dallas has to offer. What’s not to love? Well, the lack of diversity for one. And all that community can be a little too close. “If I sneeze, my next-door neighbor doesn’t need to know,” one resident says.
