Our family is considering a move from Eastern US to TX. One family member would be working in Dallas and another one would be working in Richardson. What would be a logical area to look into for housing? We like wide open spaces. Have two kiddos and don't like traffic (at least one of us doesn't). A nice quiet small town would be nice. Am I asking the impossible?

What kind of driving commute would you consider? I would definitely suggest looking north, but are you wanting a rural area where you can have several acres or more suburban. I live in Plano which i love. Moderator cut: soliciting

Victor is correct. More info would be needed. A price range helps too as well as where in Dallas you will be working? downtown? It's pretty spread out, so that would help to direct you. Age of kids for schools?

Dallas and Richardson border each other, and this isn't a rural area. The nearest "small towns" will be a significant drive away from both places. Also, where in Dallas will one person be working? It is a big town, and there is a lot of geographic difference between North Dallas and downtown Dallas.

I aggree we need more info. Price range will be a key here.
