Best Cities in Texas for Young Families

We understand that moving to Texas with your family was not an easy decision to make. But you did it! Congratulations are in order! But, before you start preparing your family for this relocation, there are certain things you have to do. For instance, you have to sell your current home, hire a real estate agent to help you find your new home, book movers, mentally prepare everybody for this big life change, etc. However, there is something you must do even before all of this - decide which city in Texas you want to move to. They all have something to offer to you and your family, so it is up to you to decide which one suits you the most. We can also help you out with this one - we prepared a list of some of the best cities in Texas for young families that might help you make your decision. 

A list of the best cities in Texas for young families


Without a doubt, one of the best cities in Texas for young families is Southlake. This is no surprise, as Southlake has been a popular family getaway for the last decade. Why? Because it is full of family-friendly amenities all year round. Whether you and your little ones prefer outdoor or indoor fun, Southlake has got you covered. But, of course, you will not be moving to this city because of all the family fun; you will move because of the top-notch schools, job opportunities (with some of the highest salaries), and diverse real estate options. Yes, Southlake has all of these! So, if these are what you were looking for, start planning a long-distance move to Texas! Trust us, and you will not regret this decision! 


The next on our list of the best cities for young families in Texas is the one and only town of Canyon! This is a relatively small city in Randall County, but don't let its size fool you - it is small, but it is full of opportunities any family may need. For instance, one of the most significant benefits of living in this city is being able to make a lot of money. A median household income is around $60,000 a year. So, you don't need us to tell you what great things you can do with that money. Moreover, Canyon has to offer many things besides a well-paying job - some of those things are, for example, safe neighborhoods, family-friendly activities, and some of the most welcoming neighbors who will always offer to babysit.


And now, something completely different. By now, we have mentioned some relatively small, family-friendly cities in Texas. But, we will move to something a bit bigger - Houston. Houston is the largest (both population and size-wise) city in Texas, and it is the fourth largest city in the entire USA. So, if your young family prefers something metropolitan-like, give this city a thought. Once you move here, you will be able to find a good job, and you will be able to send your children to a good school - what can be more important than that? If you agree, then start looking for long-distance movers in Houston who will organize your move. They are the only ones who can help you reach Houston with ease. And, don't worry, as this city will not disappoint even when it comes to qualities such as family-friendly amenities, safety, entertainment, etc. 


If you are on a budget, you will be interested in this small city called Wylie. Its location is rather small, but don't let that stop you from moving here. According to real estate experts, Wylie is one of the fastest-growing cities in the entire state of Texas. This means one thing - now is the time to buy a property here. As mentioned before, Wylie is highly affordable (when it comes to real estate, utilities, groceries, and all sorts of amenities that require some money), so if you and your family have a small budget, this is the place and the time to buy your first home. You will love living here - something all other families will tell you. All Wylie's neighborhoods have tight-knit communities that stick together no matter what. 


Sache is a city where everything is bigger. The residents of Sache simply live by the mindset - bigger is better. Here, you have bigger homes, bigger yards, bigger trees, and even bigger lawnmowers. Thus, don't be surprised if you see homes (and all amenities around them) with a lot higher prices than what you are used to. However, if you decide to move here, that may be the boost you need. This city will 'force' you to have a better job, a bigger home, and even a larger family. And, it will 'force' your family to try all sorts of things such as county clubs, horseback riding, golfing, etc. As you can see, Sache is perfect for those who want a little piece of posh heaven. 


And, we have reached the end - the end of our list of the best cities in Texas for young families. The last on our list is the city of Mansfield. And, let us tell you something - we saved the best for last. Mansfield is a perfect place for all those young families looking for a forever home. Its neighborhoods are safe, and its roads are perfect for commuting (to the nearby city of Dallas). Its residents are friendly, and its homes are very cheap, etc. On top of all this, Mansfield is also full of family-friendly activities - parks, malls, recreational centers, play areas, restaurants, coffee shops, and all sorts of things that you can enjoy on those days off. So, if you have decided to move to Texas but are still not sure which city to choose, our advice is to give Mansfield a chance. Of course, you won't go wrong by choosing any other place from our list. It's all about deciding what it is that your family is looking for and finding it.
