Humm Red Oak? Have not heard of that one Yet. I will look that one up. We did hear yesterday about a place called Kennedale. Maybe he should look south due to the information I am getting about the traffic North of Arlington.

I did not know about the road work that is going to tie things up for the next 5 yrs. Ouch! Don't think I want my hubby in the car for hours. Too bad Argyle schools were looking inticing. Good according to Schooldigger.com and small for the kids. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

google a map with your husband's work address and look at the towns that show up on the map--
use the direction check to check the mileage--at least for the towns themselves...

I think you need to get general grasp of geography locally...and you can add probably 15-20 min to what ever Google gives as drive time each way for rush hour/construction/and getting to the freeway minutues...

then when you find something in your drive time window--do a search in Fort Worth or Dallas boards (dpending on if the town is Tarrant or Dallas county)

Argyle is not a nice small town if you are a middle-class family. The rich are vicious here, and there are alot of them. There are way too many rich wives here with too much time on their hands. They don't have to work for a living like the rest of us so the only other thing to do is stir up trouble. I would never recommend living here. Children that come from families without money are treated terribly by children whose families are wealthy, and some of the parents seem to encourage this behavior. Steer clear!

Apparently someone had a bad experience with mean kids.

Argyle is a very nice place. Mean kids are everywhere.

Actually, RocketTxGirl's description seems to be pretty accurate as far as I'm concerned. There are alot of upper class, and they do seem to treat people as if they are better than everyone else. I know I've personally been treated with disrespect from the people here on many occasions. I wouldn't recommend Argyle either. There are alot of nice small towns nearby though.

If schools are important to you check out Coppell. So you have even a 45 min commute, that isn't nearly as long as many people have and there aren't many areas in the DFW area that are nicer or more family oriented.

Arlington is a big place. If Hubby is working in south Arlington then you might want to look south to the Mansfield area. Lots of growth happening there, good schools, and a bit more middle class than the suburbs north of Arlington like Colleyville and Southlake.
