I will be relocating to the area in two months and need some input on areas. Some people have mentioned bridlewood or wellington in Flower Mound. I am looking for an area with a lot of children (I have a 5 yr old and newborn) for my sons to have friends and with some friendly people, maybe other relocated families since we do not know a soul locally. Or at least welcoming of northeasterners! Maybe somewhere where the kids still play outside-does that exist anymore??LOL

Any recommendations on good areas with good local shopping and easy commute to Fort Worth for my graduate school and then possibly commute to Dallas/Plano area for work? I know the Dallas commute will stink but I do 2 hours each way now from NJ to NYC so an hour is welcome change!

Much appreciated.

price is always something of an inhibitor...
Flower Mound does have probably the family-oriented environment you mention but others do as well

you say possible commute to Dallas/Plano--sounds like you don't know where your office will be right now
then the Lewisville/Flower Mound area is about as far east as you can go and still get into FTW decently--
you might also consider Coppell--excellent ISD--and pretty strong neighborhoods in different price ranges--it is E of DFW airport as well...
Grapevine also gets pretty good remarks for family living...
the further west you go into MidCities/Colleyville/Southlake just makes your Plano drive that much longer...
frankly going to grad school in FTW and working in Plano seems like the commute from you know where

Wellington and Bridlewood both have a lot of kids. The kids do play outside a lot. Another nice feature of Flower Mound is the amount of parks. Flower Mound also just built a new rec center with a spray park. However, both Wellington and Bridlewood have community pools. There are a lot of transplants in the area. I have found Flower Mound to be very friendly. The new shops at Highland Village has a great varity of shopping and restaurants. I really enjoy living here.

if you are interested in flower mound--probably get better response on the Dallas board--Flower Mound is not in Tarrant county--so people usually post about it on Dallas board...

Hello Miketheman,
My husband and I are also relocating this summer from Long Island, NY. We are thinking of the Keller area, east of 377. My husband will be commuting to Lockheed in FT. Worth. We were originally introduced to Flower Mound and thought it was lovely. It had a real sense of community and family friendly living. Wellington specifically was beautiful and highly recommended by our realtor who has lived in the area for many years. We are also looking for the same. Our boys are 5 1/2 yrs and 14 months. From what we were told FM would add 20-30 minutes to his commute. The areas of Keller that we are now looking at are Hidden Lakes, Saddlebrook, Carriage Gates, etc. The elementary schools are rated exemplary and again from what I have seen so far there are lots of young families. Moving away from family and friends here in NY will make finding a family friendly neighborhood a high priority for us. I would love to keep in touch to share our relocation info and experiences. I'm not so sure about communicating on this public site. My email address is darkar3441@aol.com. Look forward to hearing from you. Good Luck with your plans.
