. Coming from Downtown Dallas McKinney is approximately 27 Miles or

#2 Little Elm, Texas

Little Elm in 2000 was a small farming town that less than 3700
people called home. As of 2008 according to the

U.S Census Bureau this small Lake Side town just West of Frisco is home to
nearly 25,000 residents. How does a town nearly increase its population nearly
10 fold in less that 10 years? The top answer to that question is of course
Location, followed by unbeatable new housing deals, offering 100% Financing
through USDA financing and of Course being one of the lowest priced Lake Side
Communities in America! You can find new homes along with 4000 sq. ft
foreclosure deals built within the last 10 years in Little Elm. Not to mention
you are still only 30 miles from Downtown and literally right next to Frisco
that has any and everything that you could ever need. Little Elm is located only
10 minutes from the Dallas North Tollway by Going West on El Dorado. You will
come up to 423 than all of sudden with no warning you are in Little Elm. Drive
another 10 minutes in on El Dorado you find yourself directly on Lake
Lewisville. Little Elm also has a few neighborhoods scattered just south of 380
on Paloma Creek & Navo Road. The only reason this is #2 on our list is because
Great Schools gave them a 6 out of 10 rating and McKinney has nearly 90,000 more
people. However Little Elm due to its location and terrain truly feels like an
urban oasis and in properly named Sunset Point they have the most amazing view
of the setting sun I have seen in the Metroplex.

  1. How does Frisco, The Colony, and Allen fit into this “2 Best Cities” survey Having worked and played in Frisco for over 7 years, I see it as being one of the most progressive small cities in the area. And there are still a lot of homes that can be bought for under $150,000. Little Elm, I would have guessed would have fallen into the price range, but I am not so sure how you would judge a “best” city.

      I would think that due to the limited amount of inventory in those cities under 150k, they would not technically fit as the best under 150k. Frisco, The Colony, and Allen are great cities. Melissa is a great city as well.
