The Frisco/Plano area is definately the most Californianized area of DFW. The sheer number of California licence plates in Frisco is crazy! The attitude of the people is very similar too.

You should also look in Castle Hills on the Lewisville/Carollton border. The schools are very good in the community and there is a great community feeling in Castle Hills. We moved to the area from Carrollton specifically for the schools and community feeling. CH is a master-planned community that will eventually have 3,000 homes. To give you an idea of how family-friendly the community is--there are two dozen themed playgrounds for children in the community. There are also tons of clubs and activities in the neighborhood. Something for everyone in Castle Hills.

Here's a link to the community web site:

Welcome to Castle Hills | Premier North Dallas Residential Community

The developer commissioned a short feature film about the development and it debuted last month. The neighborhood is within a 10-minute drive of two malls, and I believe the Frisco mall is probably about the same--I haven't driven out there from my house yet. I have driven from Ikea in Frisco to my house in 10 minutes, FWIW.

My daughter goes to one of three Montessori schools in the area.

West Plano is a good suggestion too. I would probably choose West Plano over Flower Mound for a commute to Lewisville.

I really appreciate all the replies! I did look online at CH. Loved the homes...it looks like Irvine a bit. Its huge on the list...question though, does it take 10 minutes just to get out of the "compound" ha! just to get to shopping areas? Also, I loved the newer homes there, but didn't see a lot built with pools...posssibly bc of the community pools there. But we would like to entertain and I know Dallas is HOT HOT HOT! thx

There are a lot of community pools, so fewer people have pools in CH.

It does not take 10 minutes to get out of the neighborhood! Not even in the most interior lots in the neighborhood! Where did you hear that?
