4 DFW Communities make CNN Money’s Top 100 List

Posted: August 27, 2012 in Uncategorized


Dallas/Ft. Worth has four area communitites close to the top of CNN Money’s list of the Top 100 places to live in the country.  McKinney tops the DFW communities at #2.

Also in the ranking was Allen at #13, Mansfield at #28, and Flower Mound at #32.

#1 on CNN Money’s list was Carmel, Ind.

Here is what was written by CNNMoney regarding McKinney, TX:

“Established in 1848, McKinney is one of northern Texas’ oldest towns. Stroll around downtown, and you’ll see cotton mills and feed stores transformed into hip boutiques and art galleries.

The city offers plenty of housing options, from starter homes to old Victorians and ‘Texas-style’ five-bedrooms. Low taxes have lured companies with white-collar jobs in technology and energy, a new hospital opened in July, and a conference center and hotel complex is in the works.

McKinney’s location on the fringes of the Dallas area means commuters have a longer drive downtown, but also easy access to rolling green hills, golf courses, and leafy open spaces lacking in neighboring towns”

Texas has a total of 5 states in the ranking with four of the communities coming from the DFW metro area.  No other state had more than five cities ranked.
