Richardson, Texas, located just north of Dallas, has long established itself as one of the best commuter cities in which to live around Dallas-Ft. Worth. Largely unaffected by the recession of the late 2000’s, Richardson continued to grow, enjoying business development success, multi-use land development, and continued population growth.
Oh, and did we mention that Richardson was just named the #5 Happiest Mid-Size City in the nation by real estate site Movoto.com for low crime, low unemployment, and high income?
Richardson, which has about 100,000 residents, is landlocked by surrounding suburbs and most neighborhoods are well-established. Connected via the DART light rail system, Richardson is about 20 minutes to downtown Dallas.
The city has an impressive modern performing arts venue in the Charles W. Eisemann Center, which is located in the Galatyn Park Urban Center and adjacent to the Galatyn Park DART light rail station.
Richardson attracts families and couples at a wide spectrum of price points. Starter homes, built in the 1950s and priced around $175,000, can be found near the “Heights” neighborhood close to North Central Expressway and Belt Line Road.
Another popular Richardson neighborhood is Canyon Creek, which is distinguished by its winding roads and walking trails along the lush greenbelt lining Prairie and Canyon creeks. The neighborhood is adjacent to the University of Texas at Dallas and the city’s Telecom Corridor.
While much larger than many North Texas suburbs, Richardson has maintained its commitment to academic excellence. The Richardson Independent School District boasts many schools with multiple honors, including the Texas Business and Educators Coalition’s honor roll, and the US Department of Education’s Blue Ribbon School distinction. Inside Richardson limits, residents have access to three high schools, while the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas operates two K-8 schools, St. Joseph School and St. Paul the Apostle School, in Richardson. Other private schools include Canyon Creek Christian Academy (K-12), North Dallas Adventist Academy (K-12), IANT Quranic Academy (K-12), The Alexander School (8-12), Dallas North Montessori School (ages 3–9), and Peace Academy Magnet School (K-12).
