Vibrant Southlake Ranks as Best Neighborhood in the Metroplex

This grand estate at 300 Burney Lane in Southlake sits on three acres of heavily wooded land surrounded by hundreds of acres of nature preserve.

The Dallas Morning News calls Southlake the best neighborhood in the region, according to an analysis published by the newspaper this week.

With its great schools, Southlake has attracted both empty nesters and young families. Here’s what the newspaper wrote about Southlake:

Two pivotal moments that helped turn Southlake into one of the region’s most affluent destinations happened decades before most here were even familiar with the town and weren’t even decided at City Hall.

In 1959, the rural Carroll schools became an independent district with narrow boundaries mostly matching those of the recently incorporated town. Six years later, regional officials chose nearby property to build Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Over the next decades, Carroll built its reputation as a close-knit district with strong academics and a powerhouse football team, while D/FW grew into one of the world’s busiest airports. Professionals looking for good schools and easy access to travel set Southlake on a path that few — if any — booming suburbs have matched and landed it at the top of The Dallas Morning News’ ratings of best neighborhoods in the region.

Based on survey results and data analysis by The News, Southlake ranked as the best overall place to live locally.

The ratings took into account 11 features — including safety, schools, shopping and length of commute — and covered Dallas, Collin, Rockwall, Denton and parts of Tarrant counties. Southlake finished above neighboring eastern Colleyville as well as Frisco east of Preston Road, University Park and Prestonwood in Far North Dallas.

Southlake finished tops among suburbs, places for the wealthy and empty nesters, and it ranked second for families with children.
