Please name some charming little boutiquecy towns boasting safety, diversity, best schools, affordable homes and convenience galore within 30 minutes of job hubs/airports.

That's a good one though Torchy's Tacos at DNT and Park is our current favorite.

If you consider Texas your entire world, then I guess that ranking holds up.
Yes, IN THE WORLD. For my job, I've been in malls all over the world - Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, etc. I've yet to find another mall where a museum-quality modern art collection is on display, for free, to the public. Not to mention the stores. NorthPark is one of only 3-4 malls in the U.S. that gross over 1 billion in sales. It has the #1 volume Neiman Marcus in the country. It's merchandised extremely well with zones for luxury, kids, teens, etc. And it's family owned, not a generic Simon/ Westfield/ etc mall that could be in any suburb in the US.

Exactly. If one wants to live in a charming little mom n pop town with warmth, history, culture and character, yet have a well paying job/short commute/access to shopping/dinning/airport/health/entertainment/natural beauty/good weather and good public schools, without breaking a bank then one doesn't move to DFW. Plano is actually flip side of coin for this area.

Shops at Legacy has more great restaurants than stores:

Capital Grill and/or Bob's Steakhouse for world class steak. Del Frisco's has also opened up, but I have yet to try.

Cafe Istanbul - good Turkish/Mediterranean and a lovely patio

RA Sushi - fun atmosphere and cocktails, pretty decent sushi, and fun patio.

East Hampton Sandwich - upscale sandwich place with beer and wine. Awesome lobster roll and cubano sandwich, killer sweet potato fries.

Fireside Pies - one of the best, if not THE BEST pizza in DFW.

Ginger Man pub - Great beer selection, open till 2 a.m.

And don't forget Paciugo's gelato shoppe - simply awesome.

There is even a Mi Cocina, although it's not my fav location - 2 levels, kinda loud.

They also have the Angelika Theater that shows indie and foreign films, if you are into that sort of thing.

could you explain what exactly you mean by that? where exactly is there all of that? I think the well paying job is usually hard to find in a smaller town.

Just sayin that DFW doesn't offer affordable perfect packages so lay off of Plano. It's the "BEST VALUE" reality for DFW, itsnt fair to compare it with Fantasyville.
