What do you think are the top-3 most picturesque suburbs and why?

(ie- cute downtown, rolling hills, lakes, manicured homes... etc)

Probably the best topography areas are South West of Dallas around Joe Pool lake. Next I would say possibly SOME areas of McKinney.

I agree - Cedar Hill in particular has some really beautiful areas geographically. As far as "manicured homes" - there are some but I think that's the exception to the rule. Close to Joe Poole lake which is just OK for being picturesque.

Agree with what ETex2 and bencronin04 have said, but overall the scenery of DFW is fairly meh. The area around Mineral Wells tops anything in the metroplex, but the town itself is run down and unless you're working on the west side of Fort Worth it's not a practical place to live.

Topography - Cedar Hill or the hillier parts of Lucas/ Fairview. Also, the Bluffview and Kessler Park neighborhoods in Dallas

Cute downtown- McKinney (suburb), Bishop Arts District (neighborhood in Dallas)

Manicured homes & parks- Highland Park, University Park

Agree with most of this. But there's no way Lucas/Fairview get the nod for topography over McKinney.

Cedar Hill and Aledo for scenery. Or even anywhere around Lake Worth.

If you want a historic downtown, and you are willing to not have a courthouse square, Grapevine.

Ones with pretty courthouses: Waxahachie, Weatherford, Hillsboro
