It's been almost 7 years since I left the north Dallas and Carrollton area. My family has grown a little and it's time to move back to TX. I am familiar with the DFW area somewhat but I'm considering Austin TX as well. I am not looking to live in North Dallas or Carrollton again. I work for myself but husband will be seeking work in culinary industry. He will be using Dart so area we live in needs to be on bus line.

I'm looking to rent a 2 or 3 bedroom house between 900-1000 with a nice size backyard and appliances in a less populated, safe, clean area. My family is over the busy city life and that is a major reason we are moving back to TX. However for husbands work and networking for me we have to be close to the city. I'm looking for the area that is as closest to country living as I can get. I know that's hard to find near Dallas but even just a neighborhood that resembles the quiet slow life will do.

Some things I'm seeking are great schools, great school district, as well as magnet schools. Nature, green, trees (been in the desert to long), friendly people. I've done a little research and so far North Garland seems like the closest to what I'm seeking within my budget.

Wondering what are some other areas that may be good for us?

Any ideas, information, advice, and opionions are welcome. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond to this, have a great day

Hmmmm reading your post I would consider living in these areas: Sachse, Wylie, Murphy, Rockwall, Hurst. Checks those places out I think you would like them because the metroplex has grown a lot. Welcome Back

Garland or Richardson seem like good matches. The "sense of tranquility" you seek is really hard to define and the only way you will be able to discern that a neighborhood meets your need is to go and look at places. I am sure within most areas there are neighborhoods that will give you the feeling you seek.......
