About Rockwall Posted On: 10/5/2005 1:55:39 PM
Rockwall is a nice place, that has grown significantly in a short time. Rockwall is the largest town, and Rockwall County is the smallest county in the state. I've also heard rumors that it has more millionaires per capita, than any other county in the state. Rockwall county is also home to Heath, Fate, and Royse City. Rockwall schools are highly desired, and miles ahead of Dallas. The taxes can be high, and it also depends on if you get a M.U.D. district in your neighborhood, as the county is having serious growing pains. The retail is growing like crazy, and there are most things you need in town. The traffic is horrible in the downtown area, so avoid that. There are nice, new public buildings like city hall. Rockwall also seems to have a strong police presence, as there are in many affluent areas. It's 23 miles to downtown Dallas, so not bad for those commuting, however 30 can be bad during rush hour. Basically, if you have a family that you want to expose to good schools, opportunites, and a very WASP-ish lifestyle, move to Rockwall County. Let me add a disclaimer because there are some people who are VERY country, but most of them seem to live in or around Royse City. Also, I've heard the Royse City schools need a nudge, but can not say for myself.
