So, you have decided you want to move to the Dallas Fort Worth area but you’re wanting to get away from the city center. You probably have looked at Lewisville, some would describe it as the best Dallas suburb. However, should you move to Lewisville, Texas let’s see if we can help you narrow your choices.
1. Great Fishing Scene & Shores
Lake Lewisville is probably one of the most important things residents in Lewisville like to discuss. Lake Lewisville is home to the Lewisville Fishing Barge which is open 24 hours a day and is located just a few minutes away from the Lewisville Lake Park. The barge has restrooms, sells bait as well as snacks.
Lake Lewisville is home to a variety of fish primarily various species of Bass & Catfish. It’s also a great place to come out and have a picnic or just to lounge around on the shoreline. However, if fishing and lakes aren’t your thing Lewisville does have a variety of other activities.
2. Close Proximity To Essentials
When you’re moving to a suburb your biggest concern is naturally how far am I from all the essentials. Lewisville is home to a variety of grocery stores including the El Rancho Supermarket, but also home to Winco, Costco, and of course Walmart. There are a variety of boutiques and department stores (even in this tough retail environment). More importantly there are two targets both ideally located in the two largest neighborhoods in Lewisville. One thing to keep in mind though if you’re looking to get to downtown Dallas (as a commute) it’s about 20 miles depending on your area which during peak traffic hours can lead to a longer commute.
However, if you’re not against public transportation you can walk to Hebron Station and take you directly to downtown Dallas. Depending on your area this might be a significantly faster means of getting to work and avoiding that morning commute.
3. Lewisville Central Park
If you’re someone who likes parks Lewisville is home to Central Park which has a mile-long hiking/biking trail, a playground picnic pavilions, and more. You can rent the pavilions if you’re throwing a party or just sit out in the field and relax. It’s honestly a great way to spend the weekend with the family!
4. The Community
The community in Lewisville is quite active and very welcoming. Every year in June & July there is a festival hosted called the Sounds Of Lewisville. There are free live performances from the local artists as well as the local vendors / businesses and it’s a fun event. If you’re a beer lover Lewisville is also home to the Best Little Brewfest which is also held in June and typically sees attendance from around 80 breweries from all around texas.
Lewisville is a great place to live if there was one thing I had to say was it’s “weakness” it would be the commute. Getting into the city especially during rush hour can be rough but an advantage to living in the suburbs naturally is you tend to get a lot more house for your money.
