Dallas Suburbs


Key factors for deciding whether one of 116 Dallas suburbs listed on this page or the cities of Dallas or Fort Worth is the best place in the Dallas area to live are presented in the table below. This Dallas suburbs livability data can be particularly meaningful when combined with the housing and community desirability data provided on this best Dallas suburbs page.

This page identifies …

  • Where cities and towns in Dallas are located. As indicated on this Dallas metroplex commute times and distances page, commutes can be a big issue when determining where in the DFW area you want to live.
  • The general level of education and income of the people living each of these DFW cities and towns. Related information about the level of interest in school quality is available on these best DFW school districts, best DFW k-12 schools, best DFW high schools, best DFW middle schools and best DFW elementary schools pages.
  • Dallas area cities and town that are experiencing the most robust population growth. The fastest growing communities generally have greatest amount of new homes construction. However, it also is pretty unusual to find many, or even any, neighborhoods characterized by mature trees and unique houses in these communities.
  • DFW communities that are the most and least densely populated. This can be important since more densely populated cities and towns are often perceived to offer quick and convenient access to more shopping, restaurants and other similar amenities and less populated communities are likely to have less traffic and feel less crowded and perhaps also somewhat remote from where things are happening.
