I believe this is a great place to live north of Dallas for the money since I been here 5+ years, its still safe and reasonable whether you rent a house, apartment or townhouse or buy a house/townhouse and you will find that this area especially older areas are starting to improve. Our neighborhood one of the old Fox and Jacobs neighborhoods is getting water, sewage, and street improvements right now. New housing options are either apartments or townhomes the exception is out in Castle Hills addition which is between Carrollton and The Colony which is basically upscale mansions. In regards to people saying there are no places where people can ride their bikes or there are no bike lanes that has improved now that there are more bike trails than there were about 2-3 years ago. You can enjoy Central Park which has the Timber Creek trail that I believe goes about 2 miles about one mile each direction you just need to go to the city website and look under park and recreation for other trails around the city but they do exist. Yes there are improvements that could be made but this is a great place to live, you live close to everything in the DFW area but still have a little breathing room and a small town atmoshpere that you would find in very few suburbs here anymore. Plenty of shopping still exist believe or not even though a lot of new big box stores that Flower Mound/Highland Village said they never would get now moved out there around FM2499 and FM407 if you like ridiculous traffic because of poorly planned roads. However there is still plenty of shopping around Vista Ridge Mall as well and of course you have 2 Walmarts. The best indoor Mall however would be Grapevine Mills just down the road in Grapevine next to DFW Airport. There are a lot of small businesses as well that can use business yes they may not be as nice or cheap but they are local business in fact some do exist in some of the old big box stores on Main Street. Public Transportation does exist here in Lewisville currently by bus if you look at the DCTA website you can see the routes dont even touch Flower Mound and its really needed because congestion is getting worse and the DCTA rail system is being built east of 35e with three stations being built in Lewisville to Connect Dallas and Denton. There is a bus (DCTA) that goes from Lewisville to Dallas currently on weekdays. Overall its really a great place to live and this area still has great potential just like any other newer suburb to the east or west.
