Lewisville is a favorite recreational retreat from the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The suburb is home to the six-square-mile Lewisville Lake and an unfailingly warm climate, both of which make it a desirable spot for students and young professionals commuting to the greater Dallas metropolis. A host of colleges and universities sit within a comfortable 15 mile drive of Lewisville, including the University of North Texas, Brookhaven College, the University of Texas at Dallas, Texas Christian University, and Texas Woman’s University.
Ranked as one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States last decade, Lewisville has plenty of quality housing options for students of nearby colleges to consider.
South Lewisville and Vista Ridge Estates are among the more popular areas for commuters, as a number of apartment communities congregate near the intersection of 35E and the Sam Rayburn Tollway. The easy access both to cosmopolitan Dallas-Fort Worth and small-town Lewisville make it perfect for those with a vehicle or willing to car share with friends.
Another urban pocket in Lewisville is known as “The Oaks,” which sits nearer to E Corporate Drive on the western side of 35E. All three conjoining neighborhoods—Indian Oaks, Valley Oaks, and Water Oak Estates—are within easy biking distance of downtown Lewisville and not far from major thoroughfares leading into Dallas.
Other housing options are scattered along the east side of town in what’s known as Valley Vista on the banks of Timber Creek and the lakes near Hebron Parkway. Residents enjoy walking the banks of the waterways, as well as having all their basic amenities within roughly a one-mile radius of the neighborhood.
Finally, some choose to make their home square in the center of downtown, or “Old Town” Lewisville, where local charm still pervades despite the growing urbanity of the popular Dallas suburb. Expect to find more single family homes in this area based on its proximity to area primary and secondary schools.
