Great list of towns that offer large lots and scenic views.I have been to 3 of the other towns on the list,love Amherst,NH.


"It may owe its name to some high-achieving crops, but don't be fooled: this small Texan town has a whole new vision for itself. Spacious neighborhoods are quickly replacing vacant stretches of land; a new biz plan means development along a central corridor. In fact, planners wouldn't be surprised if the population more than quadrupled in the next two decades.But there is still serious small-town mojo and the want to hang on to it. After all, this is a place where locals funded and built their own playground, a Girl Scout troop rallied for recycling bins in Frontier Park, and adult softball leagues were launched because of growing interest."

I think Richardson has made CNN's list in the last 10 years. It seems to me like it's on a cycle and it just passes the plate around to the northern suburbs.

How far are they going to take this? Next week we'll read Allen ranks top in the list of Texas towns that start with the letter 'A' and have 5 letters with two vowels!

Agreed. I like all of the burbs on the north side of Dallas, from Richardson to Celina, from Grapevine to Rockwall. Each has something special to boost. I don't think this means it has anything on any other town, this article was probably encouraged by developers (Jones, Staubach, etc, etc) that have plans for the area.

There's been lots of good press lately on the DFW suburbs, I've seen stories recently on Plano, Prosper, Lakewood, McKinney, etc, all making a list as ranked best by some publication.

It's good for the whole DFW area.

Deion Sanders has a pretty sweet house in Prosper. Torii Hunter has a house out there too. Thats another area I was looking at aside from Plano and McKinney but there dont seem to be many rentals.

Rumor has it that CNN Money will rank Gary, Indiana as the #1 absolute, unquestionable, best place to live in the entire USA for all things... #2 will be Newark, New Jersey.

THIS is what we all need to latch onto. What's good for Prosper (or Richardson or Grapevine or Rockwall or...) is good for the whole metro IMO!
