I'm also very active in my community here in Grapevine. I volunteer with two civic organizations and whenever DH and I go out, we usually run into people we know. Even though Grapevine is full of shops and restaurants that bring in peopel from all over the area, those of us who live here still know each other.

Wow. That is so very cool . It says so much when people choose to stick around. That's really refreshing.

Same in Keller... I know the workers at the grocery store, cleaners etc...as well.

Have you looked in Sunnyvale? or Murphy?

I know a lot of the checkers at the grocery stores and Target and such in north FM. The nice thing is that most of the workers in the stores actually practice good customer service- an art that I thought was lost until I moved to TX.

Default Horrible Air Taffic in Granbury

I have lived in 4 other states and nine other cities, and none of them has the horrible air traffice that Granbury does. It has gotten worse each year with military jets hot rodding over the town all day along with commerical jets flying over. Small planes love to fly right over residential areas 24/7 along with medical service helicopters. Do not move here. After almost six years of this mess, we will be moving - thank GOD!

Of the 4 places you listed, only Granbury is a "small town".

The smaller outlying communities around DFW each have their own unique character and some are, well, um 'more unique'. You would need to spend some time in the various places to know which might be the right fit for you.

If being close-in is not a big concern, Stephenville is a nice town. Having a university is a nice add for the community overall.

Default Air Traffic!

I have been looking very seriously at houses in Granbury (Online) and was planning a trip there after I got mine on the market. I had a few places in mind. The "air traffic" would be a deal breaker for me. I know they have plenty of private planes at Pecan Plantation and it is not that far from other sources. I want an active little town without the city hassles.Hummmm

even if there are private planes at Pecan Plantation they aren't all in the air at the same time
