Am moving to the area and would like opinions on Coppell vs Southlake vs Colleyville.

Any thoughts are appreciated -- our main considerations are: public schools, walking trails/green space/parks, convenience (shopping/restaraunts), family/kid-friendly, and commute time to downtown Dallas (I know this will not be good, but am trying to justify it!).

Thanks for your input!

Go with Coppell. It's in Dallas county and a fairly short commute from downtown Dallas. Coppell has great schools, parks and is also known for it's low crime rate.

You did not indicate where you are moving from so I am not sure how familiar you are with the area. We lived in Colleyville for 15 years and just sold our home. The 3 cities are so close together that shopping is not really an issue, but Southlake Town Center puts all the others to shame. Malls are very close in Lewisville and Mid Cities as well and you are less than a 1/2 hour from the heart of Dallas or Fort Worth. The property taxes in all three are very high, as are the costs for the homes. Schools are considered to be high quality at all three locations. If money is no object, I'd be looking at Southlake first but all three are primo areas.

If shopping is your thing then you need to head to Dallas.. not Southlake Town Center hahahaha! If you move to Coppell you will be closer to the Dallas Galleria, Northpark Mall, and Highland Park Village.

Coppell is a great city to live in if education is your priority. As far as restaurants, you'll have to leave the city for that (except Anamia's); however, there are restaurants in neighboring cities---lots of choices. The nice thing about that is that you don't have alot of people from other cities traveling around your city. If you want to do something you leave. There are many parks and nature trails, etc; however, there is ALOT of concrete in Coppell and new homes are being built every day. You can be anywhere you could ever want to be in about 15 minutes--downtown 15-20. It's a great city. It is extremely "white picket fence" though so keep that in mind.

you don't mention price--which is a major factor--as well as where you are working--downtown Dallas sounds specific but some people see anything inside the loop as "downtown"

I too would have to say go with Coppell especially if commute to downtown Dallas is a factor, but all three are really nice cities.
