McKinney has a small town feel. I really like it up there.

Sunnyvale sounds like a perfect fit for you. Small community with great schools and less than 30 minutes from Downtown Dallas. You should certainly check it out.

There are so many too choose from it's hard to give honest suggestions without knowing more information on what other things you want to consider in the new place you will call home. Everyone likes different areas of the metroplex, hence why you're getting all these different suggestions. None of them are right or wrong, but in order to narrow it down for yourself you'll have to come up with some additional pros/cons to make your decision a little easier. Good luck.

Also depends on what you consider small. Spring is a much larger town than Katy but both are very nice although not exactly convinient if you work in downtown.

For convience to DFW airport/downtown and even Love Field you have several "small town" options. Coppell is around 40,000 people, Colleyville and Southlake also fairly small but a little closer to Ft. Worth than Dallas. Grapevine is nice and then you have a few suburbs south of downtown that are nice too.

Like everyone has said DFW is a HUGE place and once you figure out where you might be you could narrow down what smallish towns/burbs are close to you.

I live in Wylie and it definitely has a small town feel to it although it is growing and changing mostly on the west side of town. When we first moved here 8 years ago, we felt like we knew somebody just about everywhere we went and there was only one high school, middle school and intermediate school. We now have 2 high schools, 3 intermediate and 3 middle schools. And the elementary campuses are sprouting just as quickly. But even with all the growth, Wylie still feels small town, especially on the East side, and we are only 15 minutes from Bush Tollway, 20 minutes from Central Expressway.

I'm sure everyone is just trying to be helpful, but I would like to point out that the OP posted this message over three years ago (3/23/2007). If they were planning on moving back then, I'm sure they have probably found a new place to live by now. No one else has asked for help in suggesting small towns in which to live, so we are really wasting our time here.
