Carrollton is a small, quiet and family friendly city. During the weekends the city of Carrollton offers family friendly activities for free. During summer, most of the activities are held in the public pool and during winter most of the activities are held in the public library. I suggested to anybody that has a family to live in Carrollton.

Carrollton is about 20 minutes outside of Dallas, TX. It is in Denton County, Texas; not Dallas County, Texas. Carrollton, Texas, has great schools that are diverse, and my children learn so much from being exposed to kids from other cultures. There are many restaurants and so many things to do with family in this small area, so you don’t have to travel far to have a great family outing.

Carrollton, Texas, is close enough to Dallas to enjoy big-city life, yet far enough away to enjoy suburbia. The climate is fair most of the year. It’s in three counties: Denton County, Dallas County, and Collin County. There are major highways running adjacent to the city, which makes commuting easier.
