Even though Stephenville is technically bigger than Granbury, Granbury has more modern conveniences than Stephenville like 100mbps internet from Charter vs I think 12mbps max from Northland Cable TV at a much higher price. Also, Granbury has several stores that are open 24/7 that includes Kroger, CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart while Stephenville's only 24/7 store is Walmart because even though they have a CVS and Walgreens they both close early.

Saw someone mention cleburne, I live in the country and started attending cleburne schools 3 years ago. Cleburne is a town of about 30,000, which is small compared to metro suburbs, but yet not as large as denton. The FIRST thing I noticed when I started going there was how tight knit it was for its size, i became friends with the jids and the adults there, there was a large sense of community there. As far as amenities go, internet can be fast depending on your provider, they have a waterpark that opened like 8 years ago, a fairly good sized lake. A regional hospital, a large conference center. Education is not exemplary, but not horrible either, and I believe it is on the upswing. Its about an hours drive from downtown dallas, 45 from dt ft worth. However, with the completion of the 121 tollway/chisolm trail pkwy, you will be able to get to dt ft worth In about 20-30 min, making it prime location soon. There is a branch of hill college in cleburne. If you want kohls target and best buy and academy, you can drive 15 min to burleson. Cleburne has an heb, wal mart, kroger, albertsons, cvs, walgreens.
