Carrollton is a separate city from Dallas in both government and charm. Carrollton hosts a town square with local shops that help preserve the small town feel here. A newly opened DART train station makes this nabe one of the very best suburbs for public transportation, with rides to both downtown and north Denton available. Above all else, Carrollton offers quiet streets and a cozy, comfortable nature.

Relatively close to major thoroughfares.

What's not so awesome

Blander than plain oatmeal.
