Rockwall is the nation’s third best town for families, according to Family Circle magazine.
The communities featured in the magazine’s annual roundup of perfect places to call home combine affordable housing, good neighbors, green spaces and A+ public school system.
According to the magazine, each of the towns honored is made up of forward thinking leaders, parents, teachers and students who are passionate about their hometown, dedicated to bettering their children’s futures and involved in advancing their local school systems as exemplified by the implementation of such programs as partnering with local government in providing recreational amenities, private medical groups to ensure treatment for students who don’t have health insurance and integrating dual language classes in grade school.
For a county of only 144 square miles, a variety of neighborhood types is predominant in Rockwall. Whether you enjoy Lake Front or lake view living, country club living, or you need to roam on rolling acreage, Rockwall offers diversity for all lifestyles. And Lake Ray Hubbard's recreational activities are the bonus that singles, families, professionals and retirees can enjoy no matter which neighborhood they choose to call home.
