In 2009 Flower Mound was named the sixth best place to move to in the nation and number one in Texas by Forbes in the “America's 25 Best Places to Move” list.
Centrally located in North Texas near the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Flower Mound is a family-oriented community that prides itself on maintaining a small-town atmosphere while embracing and fostering a dynamic economic development environment.
After experiencing unprecedented residential growth in the 1990’s, the Town now actively promotes a burgeoning commercial development scene centered around the Lakeside Business District, located on the North Shore of Lake Grapevine, and the Denton Creek District, located in the growing I-35 W Corridor.
Providing quick and convenient access to the cities of Dallas and Forth Worth, DFW International Airport, and numerous recreational opportunities, Flower Mound has emerged as the best place in North Texas to live, work, and play.
