On the outskirts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area sits the suburb of Hurst, Texas. With a population of just over 37,000 people, Hurst has its own sense of community that separates it from the big city. The majority of residents are married, and many families have children as well, so if you are looking for a family-friendly environment, this might be the place for you. If you need more convincing, consider the median housing price of $136,500 and a cost of living below the national average.
Don’t think you have to go to Fort Worth or Dallas to find something to do. Visit Chisolm Park, go shopping at North East Mall, the third largest mall in the state, or cool off on a hot summer day at one of the two city water parks. The economy is expected to continue to grow in Hurst, with job opportunities available locally or with a reasonable commute of less than 25 minutes to the neighboring city of Fort Worth and thirty minutes to Dallas. Those commute times are downright short compared to most large American cities. It also gives Hurst added value because you can live a quiet family life in the suburbs but enjoy the many attractions, educational opportunities, and employment options of a city.
