Carrollton, Texas Real Estate
Carrollton is the 23rd largest city in Texas and stretches across three different counties: Collin, Dallas and Denton. The city was designated as a Crown Community for its dynamic efforts to develop a city as a model community in Suburban Dallas. In addition to a very favorable business climate, there is no shortage of family friendly activities both indoors and outdoors in Carrollton. Elm Fork Nature Preserve and the Dimension Tract offer wildlife enthusiast and outdoor junkies plenty to explore. Over 30 different trail systems for bikers and walkers and joggers. Another must see is the A.W Perry Homestead Museum and maybe catch a vintage baseball game that follows the rules of the 1860s. Downtown Carrollton also hosts the World of Foodies Fest, TexFest, Paws on the Square and many other events throughout the year. If your hungry, I’d check out 55 Degrees, Lefty’s Lobster and Chowder House or Herrara’s Tex-Mex.
